  • US President Donald Trump with Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto left and Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

"Donald, it's all the more reason why we need to keep working to remove the tariffs on steel and aluminum between our countries", the Canadian leader said at the ceremony.

The original three-nation North American Free Trade Agreement took effect in 1994, but Trump has vilified it as a bad deal that has fuelled a loss of US manufacturing jobs.

President Donald Trump agreed with neighbors Canada and Mexico Friday by signing a new agreement to replace the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement at the G20 summit in Argentina.

The opposition Democrats take control of the House in January.

He also said, "the task isn't done, more hard work is ahead". During the contentious negotiations that led to the USMCA, Trump repeatedly threatened to pull out altogether.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the agreement will help maintain the stability of Canada's economy.

"Battles sometimes make great friendships", Trump said, looking to put a positive gloss on his fraught relationship with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, the proposed successor to NAFTA, would allow the first $150 (Canadian) of goods bought in the US and shipped to Canada to be duty-free.

The leaders signed the new deal on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Buenos Aires after two years of frequently blistering negotiations.

"We praise this positive step, which reconfirms the importance of free and fair trade among the three countries", the USTMA said in a statement. Trump's economic adviser Kudlow said that the administration believed that changes to NAFTA would make this type of closures unnecessary, but the management at GM apparently disagrees.

Mr Pena Nieto, who will be replaced on Saturday with Mexico's newly-elected president, has sold the deal to his people as a victory, saving free trade from a U.S. president who wanted to see it killed.

The three nations had a bitter, year-long fight over the trade pact before reaching an 11th-hour deal in October, right as the deadline hit.

'Our objective has always been to sign this agreement on November 30 and we are on track to hit that objective, ' Freeland said shortly after the Canadian delegation arrived in Argentina, according to the Canadian Press. And while we don't know the final details of the USMCA, we do know that it largely resembles, in many ways, what was there before.

"We've taken a lot of barbs and a little abuse and we got there", Trump said thanking Trudeau and Pena Nieto.

The U.S. will continue tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, and Mexico's retaliatory tariffs on many U.S. agricultural products will also remain. Cramer spoke directly with President Trump concerning the biased Canada grain grading issue and he worked closely with U.S. Trade Representative Lighthizer and Chief Agriculture Negotiator Doud to ensure North Dakota grain growers were relieved of the unfair practice of grading North Dakota grain as sub-par feed. Trump tweeted before leaving his hotel for his first meeting, a short one with Argentinian President Mauricio Macri at Casa Rosada, the famous pink governmental palace. The new deal encourages auto companies to invest or expand in the United States and Canada, not low-wage Mexico, by requiring that 40 per cent of cars be made where auto workers earn at least $16 an hour; otherwise, the vehicle won't qualify for USMCA's duty-free treatment.
