WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A top White House economic adviser said on Friday that Washington was “very, very close” to clinching a trade deal with Mexico.

“I think that we’re very, very close to a deal with Mexico,” Kevin Hassett, chairman of the White House Council of Economics Advisers, told Fox Business Network. He said there were still a few sticking points, but provided no details.
