From Morning Report, 8:15 am on 2 October 2018

Donald Trump has hailed a new trade deal with Canada and Mexico as a victory for the United States. President Trump says his get-tough approach to trade, including his use of tariffs, was bringing results. New Zealand Trade Minister David Parker has welcomed the new trade deal. A spokesperson from his office says officials will be looking closely at the outcome to see how it affects New Zealand businesses. Mr Parker visits Washington and Ottawa later in October. Trade expert Stephen Jacobi discusses the deal with Guyon Espiner.
