TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada’s Finance Minister Bill Morneau said on Monday the country is negotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with a partner that has “changed the terms of the discussion”.

Morneau’s comment came after U.S. President Donald Trump appeared to suggest Canada and Mexico could win exemptions to his planned sweeping tariffs on steel and aluminum if the two countries sign a new NAFTA trade deal and take other steps.
