Trump says the agreement will be good for American workers

The US and Mexico have announced a new trade deal.

It will replace the existing NAFTA agreement, which Donald Trump's previously called 'a bad deal'.

It comes despite ongoing tension over President Trump's plan for a wall on the Mexican border.

To mark the breakthrough, President Trump took a phone call from Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto in which he praised his counterpart.
