U.S. will continue trade talks with Canada if deadline missed, Trump’s top negotiator says

WASHINGTON – The Trump administration will continue trade negotiations with Canada even if there is no deal by the U.S.-imposed deadline of this weekend, President Donald Trump’s top trade official said Tuesday.

In a largely pessimistic public appearance, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said Canada is “running out of time” to sign on to a trade deal with the U.S. and Mexico.
