Mexico and Canada are 'being very difficult' in NAFTA renegotiations

Texas U.S. Sen. John Cornyn

Donald Trump on Sunday paused his monitoring of flooding and hurricane recovery in Texas to fire off tweets on familiar bugbears including Nafta and his promised border wall.

President Trump, however, was not entirely focused on this natural disaster.

On CNN's "New Day" Friday, host Alisyn Camerota quoted Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto telling Trump in a phone call, "Mexico can not pay for that wall".

And in a related tweet, Trump stated, "We are in the NAFTA (worst trade deal ever made) renegotiation process with Mexico & Canada.Both being very hard, may have to terminate?"

He then wrote a series of tweets about the rescue effort.

Earlier this year, Trump agreed to renegotiate the deal with Mexico and Canada, but has since stated that he thinks they will end up terminating.

Going into the next round of Nafta talks, Trump has kept the heat turned up.

In response, Mexico's foreign ministry issued a statement Sunday afternoon reiterating the country's position that it will not "in any way or under any circumstance" pay for Trump's signature border wall.

Trump also used Twitter on Sunday to press the need for his promised wall on the United States southern border.

"If we have to close down our government, we're building that wall", he said. Trump also said: "The fact is we are both in a little bit of a political bind, because I have to have Mexico pay for the wall - I have to".
