President Donald Trump spoke Monday about the preliminary deal with Mexico to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. 

The president talked up the deal as a triumph, pointing to Monday’s surge in the stock market, but many questions still remain. This includes what about that third country that’s been a part of NAFTA.

Trump says he will negotiate with Canada, but it’s up in the air whether Canada will join a new pact.
