A panel on CNN’s New Day discussed how NAFTA negotiations showcased President Trump’s skills in the art of the deal.

“The key point here is, [Trump] floats out, ‘We’re going to walk away from [NAFTA].'” National Security Correspondent for The New York Times David Sanger said.

“[Mexico and Canada] call in and say, ‘Let’s not walk away from it, let’s negotiate out the terms you want,'” he added. “This is classic Donald Trump negotiating strategy.”

“It appears to be working,” host Alisyn Camerota said. “It got their attention. He starts from a position that’s more dramatic, maybe than where he’ll end, and they feel like it’s a win.”

Sanger compared NAFTA negotiations to Trump’s ability to put NATO members on notice.
