WASHINGTON — The U.S. and Mexico have struck a trade deal outside of the North American Free Trade Agreement, President Donald Trump said in the Oval Office Monday.

“It’s a big day for trade, a big day for our country,” Trump said. “We’ll get rid of the name NAFTA.”

The plan would still have to be approved by Congress to go into effect. Trump said Monday that it remains to be seen whether Canada, which has resisted efforts to rewrite NAFTA, could be included in the new agreement or come to a separate agreement with the U.S.
