"We find it very unfortunate, and to us it's certainly very important in the coming days and weeks leading to the final signing of the agreement that they are able to resolve the situation".
After more than a year of hard negotiations, the agreement - now including Mexico and Canada - will be sent to Congress Monday. But a Democrat-controlled Congress "might be willing to throw one of the great deals for people and the workers".
