(HOUSTON) – President Donald Trump said on Saturday that he would discuss next week with his advisers whether to withdraw from a trade deal with South Korea.

Trump was speaking with reporters while on a trip to hurricane-hit Houston.

The U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement has been a frequent target for Trump, who, in interviews with Reuters, has threatened to pull out of what he terms an unequal deal.
