Trump Fulfills Another Promise
 
President Trump has been a major critic of NAFTA and has promised to replace it. On Friday he took a major step in this crusade. A new trade deal between Mexico, Canada, and the United States was signed by Trump and the leaders of the other two countries.

According to The Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump signed a new trade deal with Canada and Mexico Friday delivering on a signature promise from the 2016 presidential campaign.

 

“This new agreement will ensure a future of prosperity and innovation for Mexico, Canada and the United States,” Trump declared at the G20 summit in Argentina. The president signed the new deal with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.

“I am honored to be here with President Enrique Peña Nieto – who’s become a great friend – of Mexico and with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who has also become a great friend. It’s been a battle and battles sometimes make great friendships,” Trump continued.

 

Trump finalized the deal in early October after nearly two years of negotiations between all the parties. The president has railed against the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) for decades and continually promised that he would withdraw from it completely if a good deal could not be reached.

Potential roadblocks still remain as Congress much approve the deal for it to take effect.
