White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Friday morning that an agreement with Canada regarding the U.S.’ trade deal with Mexico could “maybe” be reached by the end of the day. The main issue holding it up, he said, was Canada’s dairy policies under the North American Free Trade Agreement.
“We’re all working hard and I think the United States would rather have a trade deal with Canada – but it has to be a good deal, right?” the National Economic Council director said in an appearance on Fox Business. “And the word that continues to block the deal is M-I-L-K.”
“Drop the barriers and give our farmers a break,” he added.
