WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley on Wednesday called on the Trump administration to lift tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada and Mexico before the U.S. Congress begins considering legislation to implement the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal.

The leaders of the three countries agreed on a deal to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which governs more than $1.2 trillion of mutual trade. But farmers have complained that trade tariffs with Mexico and Canada remaining in place is dampening the benefits of the new trade deal.
