Lopez Obrador told the Televisa network Monday that he will respect the current team of negotiators, and let them continue representing Mexico until he takes office December 1, noting that he wants to have information on what's being discussed and "to help as much as we can".

The U.S. Commerce Department is expected to hold hearings on auto tariffs in late July and to complete its investigation into auto imports later this summer.

Trudeau got a tour of the facility and the two spoke about the trade environment and how Diab supports Trudeau's retaliatory tariffs. US yogurt will now be hit with a 10 percent duty.

Later in the day in Regina, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said Canada's tariffs were created to offer a clear message that the Trump administration's trade action against Canada is "illegal and absurd" and that Canada is responding, dollar-for-dollar, in retaliation.
