NAFTA THREATENED:Canadian officials have been angered by Trump’s boasting that he was playing hardball, but are to continue talks with the US on Wednesday

Trump lashed out on Twitter for what he said was a breach of an off-the-record agreement, but he confirmed that he was taking a hardline stance in the talks.

“Wow, I made OFF THE RECORD COMMENTS to Bloomberg concerning Canada, and this powerful understanding was BLATANTLY VIOLATED. Oh well, just more dishonest reporting. I am used to it,” Trump tweeted. “At least Canada knows where I stand!”
