Ramos told AFP that Mexico was prepared to release the text of the agreement with the United States on Friday, the next step in advancing the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement. The Canadian Automobile Dealers Association has warned that the auto tariffs could affect billions of dollars' worth of exports and lead to the loss of more than 100,000 jobs across the country.
Now, the negotiators, who are trying to stay within this time limit imposed by the administration Trump, "lack of time", acknowledged Tuesday Robert Lighthizer, at a conference in NY, and whose remarks were relayed by the american media.
President Trump suggested that a potential U.S. -Mexico-Canada trade deal could be called USMC.
The U.S. has been talking about moving forward on a NAFTA deal with Mexico and leaving Canada out in the cold. "It would be unfair to all the people that have been involved - certainly the US workers, farmers and ranchers - to start a new negotiation with a new president of Mexico".
That came after the incident on Tuesday in which Mr Trump appeared to rebuff Mr Trudeau when he approached to shake hands, even though the Canadian leader downplayed the incident.
Sticking points include opening up Canada's dairy market to United States farmers, and a dispute resolution process that Canadians want to preserve.
Trump then repeated his displeasure with Canadian trade officials - "I must be honest, we're not getting along at all with their negotiators" - and accused Canada of taking advantage of the USA for years.
"We're thinking about taxing cars coming in from Canada", he said.
Earlier on Wednesday, Trudeau shrugged off USA pressure to quickly agree to a deal and indicated it was possible the three member nations might fail to conclude a new pact. "I think our view is now we'll turn to that as a next stage".
Trudeau said existing US tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum in late May would have to be scrapped before Canada felt comfortable signing a new NAFTA.
But Freeland's spokesman, Adam Austen, said Canada would only sign a good deal. "And that involves, obviously, feeling confident about the path forward as we move forward - if we do - on a NAFTA 2.0 and the ... lack of punitive tariffs that we consider are unjust", Trudeau said.
"How do you sell a dairy product at 300 percent?" he said, adding that it is obviously Canada's way to back-door a trade barrier disguised as a tariff.
"No meeting was requested", she said in a statement Trump's press conference.
President Trump said the U.S.is not getting along with the Canadian negotiators "at all".
Trump has previously floated the idea of striking two separate bilateral trade deals with the NAFTA partners.
The deal with Mexico left open the question of whether Canada, the third country in NAFTA, would agree to the changes.
He also stressed that the United States is dissatisfied with the negotiators of Canada.
Trudeau said that his government's ongoing push to get a seat on the UN Security Council is to help make sure that Canada is part of the highest-level conversations when it comes to democracies and defending human rights.
Trump vowed Tuesday, during his address to the UN General Assembly, that his administration would systematically renegotiate "broken and bad trade deals". "It's been long and exhausting, but I think we've narrowed the gap".
