However, Trump more directly tied Canada and Mexico's exclusion from the tariffs to a successful NAFTA outcome.

The seventh round of Nafta talks ended Monday with some progress on minor issues, and a US willingness to "compromise". Politico quotes the Mexican Economy Ministry in a release that says, "The process of negotiations for the NAFTA modernization continues on a course independent of this or any other internal political measure that the US government takes". Canadian Finance Minister Bill Morneau said Friday that "actually bodes well" for talks to update the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement, and Trump said he had a feeling there'll be a deal on Nafta.

The U.S. has suggested further delays might imperil the NAFTA process, with an outsider candidate leading polls for Mexico's July 1 election, and with Trump's party in danger of losing control of the U.S. Congress.

President Donald Trump urged the quick completion of the NAFTA negotiations in a phone call with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday, amid indications the USA wants a deal wrapped up this spring.

"The exemptions aren't a magical favour that was being done (for Canada)", Trudeau said.

Australia's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said on Saturday, March 10 that he and Trump confirmed that tariffs would not apply to the country.

Trump last week rolled out tariffs on steel and aluminum but said Canada and Mexico will be excluded and long-term exemptions would be based on the results of NAFTA negotiations.

"Due to the unique nature of our relationship with Canada and Mexico, we're negotiating right now NAFTA, and we're going to hold off the tariff on those two countries to see whether or not we're able to make the deal on NAFTA", Trump said at the event announcing the tariffs.

Trudeau called his American counterpart during a tour of aluminum facilities in Quebec, on a day the prime minister did American television interviews to promote the integrated Canada-U.S. economy. "We need to all continue to encourage all three governments to remain committed to Nafta".
