WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Tuesday the U.S. trade deal with South Korea has been fully renegotiated and may be signed at the United Nations, where leaders have gathered for the 73rd session of the General Assembly.
“The trade deal with South Korea has been fully renegotiated and is ready for signature,” he told a news conference. “We may sign it at the United Nations or shortly thereafter. It was a terrible deal for the United States, now it’s a fair deal.”
