U.S. President Donald Trump today said he was in no rush for negotiators to finish NAFTA talks but he thinks they are getting pretty close to a deal.

According to Reuters, Trump told reporters at the White House that “it’s coming along great,” adding that he was not pushing for a deal to be concluded quickly on changes in the North American Free Trade Agreement.

“There’s no timeline. Agriculture is OK with NAFTA, not great. We’re going to make it great. We’re getting pretty close to a deal. It could be three or four weeks, it could be two months, it could be five months. I don’t care.”
