The USMCA is billed as a win for American workers and it appears the Dems know obstructing this could be detrimental.
House Democrats are reportedly prepared to hand President Donald Trump a major win before the end of the year by passing the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA), which replaces the old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
“We are moving positively in terms of the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement, again it all comes down to enforcement,” Pelosi said on Thursday. “I do believe that if we can get this to the place it needs to be — which is imminent — that this can be a template for future trade agreements. A good template.”
“I’d like to see us get it done this year, I mean, that would be my goal,” Pelosi added.
The USMCA is a modernization of the 24-year-old NAFTA agreement and “will support mutually beneficial trade leading to freer markets, fairer trade, and robust economic growth in North America,” the Office of the United States Trade Representative said in a statement.
