US lowers NAFTA key auto content demand: Mexico auto lobby

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence right shakes hands with Venezuelan opposition leader Julio Borges during a meeting at the residence of the US ambassador in Lima Peru Friday

The vice president appreciated the Summit of the Americas after Trump earlier that week declared plans to attend the function he might craft a response to the chemical attack, which is why US authorities state there's proof of Assad's involvement.

Vice President Mike Pence, attending an global summit on Saturday, claimed he backs President Trump's assertion earlier in the day from the afternoon which the US -led airstrikes that weekend at Syria led to "mission realized", And he warned Syrian president Russian Federation that it was "around the incorrect side of record".

While the crisis in Syria was front and centre, Trudeau and Pence expressed optimism about the state of NAFTA negotiations, the results of which will have dramatic ramifications for the US and Canada.

Pence also said, "It's time for Russian Federation to get the message President Trump delivered last night".

Mr. Trump was criticized Saturday morning for tweeting "Mission Accomplished!" after the strikes, a phrase reminiscent of former President George W. Bush's May 2003 "Mission Accomplished" speech, declaring success in Iraq shortly after the US -led invasion.

Earlier in the day, Pentagon officials suggested they had proof that the Assad regime was behind the attack, but said they couldn't elaborate on the information because it was classified. "You're known by the company you keep".

He told reporters at the Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru, on Saturday that the operation "significantly eroded" and "degraded" Syrian chemical weapons capabilities and that the mission was "completely accomplished".

Why Cynthia Nixon Wants To Be Governor
It's possible that pressure from progressives and people like Nixon are convincing him to possibly evolve on the issue. As expected, New York's Working Families Party officially endorsed gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon on Saturday.


'Our message to Russian Federation is, "you're on the wrong side of history", ' Pence also said.

Pence's to-do list included smoothing over differences with Mexico, America's southern neighbor, amid unease over Trump's decision to send troops to the border and harsh rhetoric on immigration.

Further Pence said that "minimum" chlorine was used in the attack along with serin.

While the crisis in Syria was front and centre, Trudeau and Pence also expressed optimism about the state of NAFTA negotiations, the results of which will have dramatic ramifications for the USA and Canada.

USA trade negotiators have reduced their demand for regional auto content under a reworked NAFTA trade deal to 75 percent from the 85 percent they had sought, the head of Mexico's automotive industry association (AMIA), said on Friday.

Pence credited the strong leadership of President Donald Trump and USA allies for conducting what he said was a successful strike with no reported civilian casualties. And with tensions simmering over trade, Pence expressed hope alongside Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that the three nations could soon agree to a renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement.
