Justin Trudeau to speak at University of Chicago next week

Days ago, reminding Donald Trump about a possible outcome, Trudeau at the University of Chicago, has said the fall of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) will hurt the middle class of the United States, media reports said.

Free trade is a delicate issue in the U.S. Midwest, where there is a feeling that the North American Free Trade Agreement has cost American industrial jobs - a favourite talking point of President Donald Trump, one of NAFTA's most strenuous critics.

As a candidate, Trump has called NAFTA a job-killing disaster.

Trudeau, who was not injured or involved in the crash, was leaving the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, where he delivered a speech highlighting the importance of trade between USA and Canada.

Reaching agreements has always required "persistence and no shortage of sunny, Reagan-esque optimism on both sides", he said.

"The conversations I've had across this country over these past few days have been extremely positive", the prime minister said on Saturday morning.

There are also US demands for greater market access to Canada's protected dairy industry, amplifying Trudeau's message among dairy farmers in IL, neighbouring Wisconsin, and California.

Standing at the Griffith Observatory in the Los Angeles hills - a site made famous as a setting in multiple movies - Trudeau said his pitch to save the North American Free Trade Agreement from falling apart was well received.
