Trump delaying NAFTA deal until after midterm elections

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J. (AP) — President Donald Trump says he’s delaying signing a revised version of the North American Free Trade Agreement until after the midterms in hopes of reaching a better deal.

Trump says in a Fox News interview that aired Sunday that he could quickly sign an agreement with Mexico and Canada, “but I’m not happy with it. I want to make it more fair.”

He added that he would wait until after the fall elections.
