Nafta Rewrite in Peril
President Trump's plans to rewrite the North American Free Trade Agreement this year looked unattainable Tuesday after negotiators appeared too far apart to strike a deal before a deadline this week. House Speaker Paul Ryan had set Thursday as an informal deadline if the administration were to push a pact through the Republican-controlled Congress before a new slate of lawmakers arrives in Washington next year, possibly led by Democrats. Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo said a deal was unlikely by Thursday. Negotiators showed a willingness to continue pursuing an agreement in the coming weeks and months, although that suggests Mr. Trump's promise to rewrite the 24-year-old trade pact will take much longer than his administration had hoped.
