WASHINGTON/NEW YORK -- With a renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement under his belt, U.S. President Donald Trump is turning his attention to trade with China, Japan and Europe, looking to advance American interests even at the risk of violating international trade rules.

Describing the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement as "the largest deal ever made, so far, in trade," Trump told reporters at the White House on Tuesday that he soon expected to top it with a deal with China or the European Union.
