WASHINGTON -- US President Donald Trump took credit Thursday for turning the US free trade agreement with South Korea into a "wonderful deal" for both countries.
Trump was referring to a revision the two sides made to the Korea-US trade deal in March, which calls for further opening South Korea's auto market to the United States.
"We've renegotiated the deal, and subject to signing -- I always say subject to signing because lots of things happen ... But we made a new deal with South Korea. Wonderful deal for both," he said at a groundbreaking ceremony in Wisconsin. "And our farmers now are protected. And our tariff -- which has been paid for years, which was expiring -- has now been extended for a long period of time, on trucks."
