U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi had a "productive meeting" with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer almost entirely focused on a new United States-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade deal, one of her aides said on Wednesday.

"Democrats continued to express our interest in working with the USTR to get to 'yes,' and will be planning more discussions with the USTR on the key questions about the USMCA proposal," the aide said.
