Round four of the North American Free Trade Agreement renegotiations among the U.S., Mexico and Canada is concluding today.

There are expected to be a total of seven rounds as the three nations look to find ways to update the 20-year-old NAFTA.

Although the countries seem to agree on the need for some changes, Mexico and Canada have been alarmed at comments by President Trump that contain a "take it or leave it" attitude.  

With me to talk about where the agreement — and renegotiations — stand is Pamela Starr, associate professor of International Relations and Diplomacy at USC.
