Donald Trump's statement at the press conference he gave jointly with the President of Mexico, Enrique Pena Nieto, is a major revision of some earlier statements that he has given on the campaign trail in both tone and substance.
Here is a link to his complete remarks. Scroll over to 45:24, when Mr. Trump begins to speak. (The Mexican President's remarks, in Spanish, begin at 31:50 approximately, preceded by thirty minutes of dead air on the Reuters feed.)
Trump's tone is completely different in this situation. One major thing he says is that NAFTA needs to be improved, not scrapped. Commentators will be mulling his statements over to analyze the degree to which they represent actual changes in position on major matters of trade policy.
