"Our products and services are sought after worldwide, and we know 95 percent of the world's consumers live outside the borders of the United States", he said.

"The consultation process is indispensible to achieve a modernization of NAFTA that meets national interests", it said.

Hatch told a Chamber of Commerce audience February 1 that he had not taken a position on the House border adjustability tax proposal.

Nonetheless, Ross - a billionaire best known for investing in struggling US manufacturing businesses, stripping them down, and saving them from shuttering or offshoring - has said he won't go easy on trading partners.
