Trump Strikes Trade Deal with Mexico

Deal threatens public health and the planet

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Donald Trump claimed today that the United States and Mexico have reached a general agreement on the broad outlines of a new NAFTA deal. However, Canada is not on board with the U.S., and negotiations are likely to continue.

Bill Waren, senior trade analyst at Friends of the Earth, issued the following statement:

Any new NAFTA deal negotiated by Donald Trump will be an across-the-board threat to environmental and public health safeguards. Trump’s new trade deal could roll back regulation of dangerous chemicals such as those associated with breast cancer, autism, or infertility.

From neonicotinoid pesticides, which are killing our pollinators, to new provisions on autos and fossil fuels, Trump’s deal with Mexico will jeopardize our health and our planet. Trump’s new NAFTA deal must be stopped.
