The NAFTA deal itself was officially called different things in French-speaking Canada (where it was known as Accord de libre-échange nord-américain, ALÉNA) and Mexico (where it was known as Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte, or TLCAN).

Countries putting their name first in the official local legal documents of trade deals is common practice worldwide, as a Canadian Broadcasting Company reporter points out. But today’s ceremony in Buenos Aires reflects how awkward Trump’s renaming effort was. Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau made a point of referring to the deal during the signing as simply the “new NAFTA.”
