Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau hinted Thursday that he now supports President Trump’s revamped NAFTA program; backing the US leader after recent polls showed the liberal politician losing support throughout Canada.
According to Yahoo News, Trudeau signaled his support for a revised version of the North American Free Trade Agreement this week, telling reporters there was a “high chance” of reaching a new deal.
“We have a high chance of reaching a win-win-win deal for Canada, the United States and Mexico,” said the Prime Minister. “With the pressures of the elections in Mexico, and the US elections, if we could announce something at the Summit of the Americas, that would be great.”
Trudeau’s comments come days after new polls show him losing support in Canada; with the Conservative party gaining ground in recent surveys.
“All of a sudden, we saw this drop,” said the chief executive of Abacus Data, an Ottawa polling firm. “It’s the first time since Trudeau became prime minister that we have results showing the Conservatives slightly ahead.”
