"It seems to me a modest step backwards from the point of view of a free trader," Toomey told CNBC's "Squawk Box." "But there's a possibility that we could address some of these what I consider flaws in the implementing legislation that Congress has to pass."
The Pennsylvania senator said he dislikes the new agreement's 16-year "sunset" clause, or expiration date, which also calls for the three sides to meet every six years to renew it. The U.S. wanted a five-year sunset.
"I don't like the government mandating wage rates, and putting quotas on imported vehicles [either]," added Toomey, a member of the Senate Banking and Finance committees.
On Sunday, just before a midnight deadline and after a protracted holdout, Canada ended up joining the U.S. and Mexico in a deal to supplant NAFTA, called the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement or USMCA for short.
Toomey said there are also positive changes in the new trilateral pact.
First and foremost, he said is "relief that we're not going to descend into a full-blown trade war with our nearest neighbors and biggest trading partners."
He also cited as "constructive" new protections around intellectual property for digital technology and financial services.
"We've got to study the details," said Toomey, a senator since 2011 and a three-term congressman before that.
However, Toomey said he thinks the "biggest changes are actually changes that diminish the free trade that NAFTA has permitted" over about a quarter century.
The White House was not immediately available for comment.
Before the end of November, Trump and the leaders of Canada and Mexico are expected to sign the new USMCA, which then goes to Capitol Hill for approval.
