Michigan Radio: Michigan labor leaders, politicians wary of Trump's potential NAFTA plan

The Trump administration is expected to release a NAFTA negotiation plan soon, which could have a large effect on Michigan's economy. NAFTA is opposed by many American workers, who say the plan has taken U.S. jobs to Mexico.

Congresswoman Debbie Dingell, D-Michigan, says Trump's NAFTA plan should reflect the promises made during the campaign. In several states, including Michigan, Trump said he would pull the United States out of NAFTA. He has since decided to renegotiate.

"The American people must have a clear understanding of what President Trump is doing [regarding NAFTA], whether he's going to keep the promises he made across the country. He sure made them in my state," Congresswoman Dingell said.

Dingell says the new plan must address issues like currency manipulation between countries.

"This is critical for Michigan's economy and the domestic auto industry," she said.
