US Vice President Pence says NAFTA deal possible in several weeks

US Vice President Pence says NAFTA deal possible in several weeks

Pence made the remarks in a speech at the Summit of the Americas in Peru on Saturday.

President Trump reportedly tried to block Vice President Pence's national security adviser pick because he previously worked on anti-Trump ads for a conservative group.

The meeting between Pence and Trudeau was largely overshadowed by those strikes, as the two condemned the Syrian government's alleged use of chemical weapons on April 7 that killed at least 40 people and injured hundreds more.

"The objective of the mission the commander in chief gave our military forces and our allies was completely accomplished - with swift professionalism", Pence told reporters, noting there were "no reported civilian casualties".

US negotiators discussing changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement also recently floated the idea that 40 percent of automotive production must occur in areas paying wages of between $16 to $19 per hour.

VP Pence called the USA led airstrikes on Syria a success.

Pence's team finally got wind of the controversy and after his plane landed, the vice president called Trump to plead Lerner's case. Pence watched Trump's speech from his hotel suite, joined by aides.

"The U.S. put on the table 75 percent instead of 85 percent for the regional content value of the vehicle and its core components", AMIA president Eduardo Solis said in a statement.

In meeting after meeting, Pence offered a low-key, extended hand.

Vice President Mike Pence says the topic of funding President Donald Trump's long-promised border wall did not come up in his meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto at an global summit in Peru.

US Vice President Mike Pence has threatened that Washington is set to respond to possible retaliatory moves against its missile attacks on Syria, by Damascus or its allies, specifically Russian Federation and Iran.

He further mentioned of the NAFTA wall being built up at the US-Mexico border while saying that United States, Mexico, and Canada are close to renegotiating a new NAFTA deal.

The summit also gave Pence an opportunity to press the case for tougher sanctions and more isolation of Venezuela across the region.

This funding is in addition to the $2.5 million for emergency food and health assistance the United States provided last month and the more than $3 million we provided to UNHCR that assisted Venezuelans in FY 2017.
