    PBS NewsHour Weekend [#864H] Trading Sovereignty There are less than eight weeks left before ongoing talks over the North American Free Trade Agreement between the United States, Canada and Mexico are set to expire. Should an agreement not be reached, President Trump may decide to start the process of withdrawing from NAFTA, an option he has threatened to pursue. At the center of the dispute between the nations is a provision in the 1994 trade deal that allows foreign investors to sue governments by claiming that certain regulations and laws harm their business interests. Canada and Mexico want to keep the provision, but the Trump administration argues that the provision impinges on a country's ability to write its own laws, thus making it a threat to national sovereignty.
