Trudeau, 46, was leaving the Reagan Presidential Library where he had given a speech when a auto turned left in front of his motorcade on Friday, ABC News reported.

For more than two years, US President Trump criticised the agreement and also hinted to take some serious steps being in the administration or at least send some ultimatums.

Trump has said that NAFTA is a "disaster" that eliminates jobs and has threatened to withdraw if they do not give him what he wants. He has threatened to pull out unless the deal requires more auto production in the US, while shifting additional government contracts to USA companies.

In brief remarks before the meeting, Newsom thanked Trudeau for his "energetic leadership on the worldwide stage ... at a time when that's not lost on many of us in the political sphere".

The location of the speech carried symbolic weight, alluding to the longstanding trade relationship between the USA and Canada.
