    The latest round of negotiations to update the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) kicks off in Mexico this weekend. US President Donald Trump has complained that Mexico and Canada are being "difficult" and is already threatening to pull out of the agreement.

    One of the issues Trump's administration is unhappy about is the lack of Mexican workers' rights and regulations.
