Bucking traditional Republican consensus favoring free trade and calling the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) the “worst trade deal maybe ever signed anywhere, but certainly ever signed in this country,” President Trump has made good on his campaign promise to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade pact, and is currently reconsidering America’s membership in NAFTA. Former U.S. Representative David Dreier, a leader in the 1993 creation of NAFTA, Ambassador Carlos Garcia de Alba, Mexico’s Consul General in Los Angeles, and Roderic Camp, professor of government at Claremont McKenna, discuss the origins of the trade agreement, its contributions to North American prosperity, and its imperiled future under President Trump.
