Trump told the Wall Street Journa, l in an interview published on Thursday, that Mexico could pay for the wall. "I think it would be especially bad for this region because we're so closely integrated into the USA economy", said Anderson.

He still repeated his threat to cancel the agreement if he can't get a better deal.

Separately, a US source close to the White House quoted Trump as saying "I want out" as the talks drag on with little sign of progress.

Champagne and Freeland spoke to reporters before the beginning of a two-day Cabinet retreat in London, Ontario. "So, Canada is prepared for every eventuality, and that is a whole of government preparation". Guajardo said a notice of termination does not appear imminent.

Progress is also possible on the sunset clause proposal, if it is watered down into an agreement to hold periodic reviews of the new deal.

Some Americans have been detecting lately that the pro-NAFTA lobby effort is working.

Juan Pablo Castanon, President of the Business Coordinating Council, is pictured at the location where the second round of NAFTA talks involving the United States, Mexico and Canada is taking place in Mexico City, Mexico, September 4, 2017.

Farmers have already been hit with commodities plunges and have been pleading with the president, through members of Congress and members of his administration, not to compound the crisis by threatening exports. He also noted the US business community is largely opposed to the Trump administration's stance on NAFTA.

Yet while it would be a disruption, a new report by BMO Capital Markets suggests it would not be catastrophic for Canada. "(But) I'm more optimistic now".

While the US has been clear there was a possibility it would withdraw from the agreement, Canadian officials believe a positive outcome is possible "if there is goodwill on all sides", Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland told reporters Thursday. Then, they spiked above 80 per cent as White House officials denied that President Donald Trump's position on the matter had changed - only to slide back to 62 per cent.

The concrete and steel structures, erected in a remote area in San Diego, will be tested for 30 to 60 days to determine which design meets the needs to secure the border, US Customs and Border Patrol Protection said in a statement.
