Trump: NAFTA trade deal a `disaster'

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump says he wants to be able to slap tariffs on U.S. companies that choose to make their products overseas, and he's willing to violate existing trade deals to do it.
 
``I like free trade,'' Trump told people at an Oklahoma City rally Friday night. ``The problem with free trade is you need smart negotiators on your side. When you have stupid people like we do, free trade's no good.''
 
In an interview with CBS' ``60 Minutes'' that will be broadcast Sunday, the billionaire businessman says he won't be stopped by deals such as the North American Free Trade Agreement if elected president.
 
``We will either renegotiate it or we will break it,'' Trump said of the landmark free trade agreement between the U.S., Canada and Mexico, panning it as ``a disaster.''
 
``Every agreement has an end,'' he said. ``Every agreement has to be fair.''
