WASHINGTON, Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- "America First," the starting point of the Trump administration's trade policies, might prove to be the biggest hurdle of free trade deals yet, best epitomized by the first round of talks to renegotiate the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
Representatives from the United States, Canada and Mexico kicked off negotiations to update the 23-year-old trade treaty on Aug. 16 Josh Jackson Packers Jersey , and announced an ambitiously fast-paced negotiation schedule on Sunday after five days of closed-door talks.
Although a joint statement said the three countries were "committed to an accelerated negotiation process to upgrade the agreement," trade experts viewed that it still will take time and efforts to bridge deep differences between the United States and its North American neighbors.

Trade experts and economists pointed out that America's trade deficit could never be reduced by a so-called fairer trade treaty Bart Starr Youth Jersey , the Trump administration insisted the issue be included in the talks.
"America First" strategy, which is seen as "Mexico second," could be counterproductive in free trade talks, said U.S. news outlet Politico.
UPGRADE OR REWRITE
On Wednesday, Lighthizer told the negotiators that Trump is not interested in "a mere tweaking of a few provisions, and a couple of updated chapters," revealing the U.S. ambitions .
