President Trump has announced that the United States will be renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Stoutenborough, Idaho State University—in their book Understanding Public Trust: Environmental Sustainability, Fracking, and Public Opinion in American Politics provide a framework for a much more complex and nuanced understanding of government trust than was available previously.
