President Trump has agreed not to immediately withdraw the U.S. from the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, which he railed against during his campaign, but he wants to renegotiate it.

Trump spoke with Canadian and Mexican counterparts this week and said he believes the renegotiation will make all three countries stronger. But what that renegotiation will look like remains to be seen.
