The Wall Street Journal: Top U.S. trade official wants new Nafta deal by mid-May

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s top trade official wants to finish a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement by the middle of the month to get a revised pact to a vote in Congress by the end of this year.

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer told a gathering at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday that he hoped to strike a deal with his Canadian and Mexican counterparts within a week or two after high-level talks resume next week.

He said a delay beyond that time frame risked “having a problem” in getting the new Nafta to a vote in Congress this year, he said.
