 President Donald Trump says a trade deal with Mexico is "coming along nicely." But he is threatening Canada with auto tariffs if the U.S. and Canada can't forge a deal.

Trump appeared to be referring to efforts to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada in his tweet from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

He says any deal with Mexico must take care of American autoworkers and farmers, but is praising the new president of Mexico, calling him "an absolute gentleman." His message to Canada is far less friendly.

Trump says, "Canada must wait." He says the country's "Tariffs and Trade Barriers are far too high" and is threatening to "tax cars if we can't make a deal!"
