President Donald Trump’s administration is working to make Indian goods and services more affordable, but his latest remarks on India have raised some eyebrows.
Read MoreFirst, Trump said he was going to “renegotiate” a $1.5 trillion trade deal between the United States and India.
But his administration has been slow to engage in negotiations, as the U.S. is trying to complete the massive TPP deal with 11 other countries by the end of the year.
“We’re working on a renegotiation.
It’s going to have to be fair.
And you’re going not only to have fair trade, but fair trade for us, and fair trade on your side, as well,” Trump said in an interview with the New York Times.
Trump’s comments came after he told reporters that the United Kingdom would not be willing to go through with a renegotiated trade deal with India.
The White House has been trying to get a deal done in the last year, but there is still no progress.
“There’s going on a process of renegotiation,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters.
“It’s not just going to happen in Washington, D.C. The process is going to take a little bit longer.”
The Trump administration is still trying to negotiate with the United Nations, and it has already agreed to the first round of talks.
It has also signed an agreement with South Korea to expand a border fence to deter North Korean and Iranian weapons.
The U.K. has not signed on to any of the agreements.
The first round, which began in March, is expected to take place in the coming months.
