NAFTA has been a disaster for the U.S. as companies have shifted their operations out of the country and taken good middle-class jobs with them. Trade has to be fair for all parties involved, and the U.S. needs to use its leverage to renegotiate NAFTA to protect American industries, minimize trade deficits, and protect the environment.
NAFTA has been mutually beneficial for Americans, Canadians, and Mexicans alike so it would be shortsighted to walk away from the agreement. Despite a growing trade deficit, U.S. consumers benefit from this free trade deal through less expensive goods and services, and those savings fuel growth in other areas of the U.S. economy.
