“Back in the 90s I remember Ross Perot saying that there was going to be the giant sucking sound of jobs if NAFTA passed,” the caller said. “I think it ended up being true, right? And I know you were a big free trader.”

“Yeah, well, I don’t think it was true in Mexico,” he said. “I think the fact is that NAFTA allowed us to build jobs in Canada, the United States, and Mexico, in competition with China. I mean, our big competitor is not Mexico. Our big competitor is China and India. And I’d rather have jobs close to the United States than have jobs overseas in places like China and India.”
