Trump says may pursue separate trade deal with Mexico

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump said on Wednesday the United States may hammer out a separate trade deal with Mexico, continuing to sow doubts about the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement that he has frequently criticized, and then do a deal with Canada later.
Speaking to reporters as members of his cabinet gathered at the White House, Trump said there have been "good sessions" with Mexico and with President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. Last week Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Lopez Obrador, who said he wants a good relationship with the United States and that his transition team will participate in future NAFTA talks.
