The president said the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which replaces Nafta, would bring thousands of jobs back to North America.
Paul Evans, a professor at the University of British Columbia, said the "astonishing" clause appears to pull Canada into line with the U.S.as the Americans engage in an escalating trade war with the Chinese - as of last month, the Washington and Beijing had slapped new tariffs on US$360 billion worth of bilateral trade in goods.
Trump's "America First" trade policies, particularly his escalating trade war with China, are aimed at boosting USA manufacturing, but they have spooked investors who worry that supply lines could be fractured and global growth derailed.

The Americans made the text of the agreement public Sunday night, with the leaders of all three countries likely to convene before the end of November to sign the deal.
The deal did give an immediate boost to the Canadian economy after months of uncertainty, with the Canadian dollar rising to its highest level since early this year.
