Returning from the G20 Summit in Argentina, president Donald Trump warned Congress between choosing the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal, or face destroying NAFTA.

According to ABC news, President Donald Trump says he will be providing formal notice to Congress that he will terminate the North American Free Trade Agreement, giving lawmakers six months to approve the replacement he recently signed.

Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One while returning to Washington from Argentina, Trump says: "I will be formally terminating NAFTA shortly."

He says they can choose between the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement or "pre-NAFTA, which works very well."

Trump has made renegotiating NAFTA a centerpiece of his presidency.
