Trump says he refused to meet Canada's Trudeau at UN

US-Canada deal in doubt; focus shifts to Japan trade talks

He also threatened Canada's increase in duties on cars, if not reached a three way deal. He said the U.S.is "very unhappy with the negotiations and the negotiating style of Canada".

That led Trudeau to suggest that Trump was trying to bully Canada June during a June meeting of the Group of 7 leading economies. "I must be honest with you, we're not getting along at all with their negotiators", Trump said.

He was asked if he had denied Trudeau a request for face time while the two leaders were at the UN.

Earlier in the day, Trudeau's envoy to the US stressed that Ottawa won't sign a deal that lacks a robust dispute settlement mechanism, nor will it join an agreement if it means Canada will still be subjected to American tariffs under the guise of national security.

Mr Trump once again complained about Canada's controlled dairy market, although his comments referred to tariffs that do not apply to United States products.

Trump has used national security as justification for the tariffs, under Sec.

"The fact is that Canada is not making concessions in areas that we think are essential", Lighthizer said. He said, "Yeah, I did".

U.S. President Donald Trump says he rejected a one-on-one meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau because he's upset with Canadian tariffs - but Trudeau's office says it never extended an invitation.

The shift in Mexico's position came as the rival incoming and outgoing administrations realized that a deal with the United States before the presidential changeover would suit them both, according to interviews with more than a dozen people familiar with the talks.




"There are very large issues", Lighthizer said, playing down chances of a deal with Canada.

"I mean Mexico has 25 percent of our oil business now because of NAFTA", said Trump.

Canada is looking for a way to reach a deal Trump can hail as a triumph, MacNaughton said.

Lighthizer is expected to submit text Friday that leaves Canada out of the agreement, Bloomberg reported Wednesday. He warned countries of the world that "the United States will not be taken advantage of any longer".

Canada and Mexico are two of the biggest trading partners with the United States. Canada imposed tariffs on $12.5 billion of U.S. goods, including steel, toffee, maple syrup, coffee beans and strawberry jam.

Canadian officials have said that despite the USA threats to go it alone with Mexico, they do not believe Trump can by himself turn the 1994 pact into a bilateral deal.

"I don't really see the elements of a deal", said Mark Warner, a Toronto-based trade lawyer.

And she said that while no one has any easy answers, the federal government is committed to working together with Canadians to find new solutions.
