The United States, Mexico, and Canada sign NAFTA replacement deal

November 30, 2018

  Back in August Donald Trump and Mexico reached an agreement on a new trade deal which would replace NAFTA. The mainstream media and the Democrats, unwilling to wait to see how the whole thing would play out, attacked the deal because it did not include Canada. Then in October Donald Trump made good on his promise to negotiate a new trade deal with Canada and our neighbors to the North signed onto the USMCA.

  With the mainstream media running interference over the last couple of days with the Russia investigation you might have missed it but today the leaders of the three countries officially signed the USMCA, here is more: 

The leaders of the United States, Canada and Mexico signed a new trade agreement here Friday, a development that President Donald Trump called “a truly groundbreaking achievement.”

The USMCA pact, largely a modernization of the nearly 25-year-old North America Free Trade Agreement, still must be approved by Congress — a potential challenge for Trump because Democrats take control of the House in less than five weeks.

Trump, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took turns praising the pact’s market access provisions, as well as its labor and environmental standards, before sitting down at a table to affix their signatures to the deal.

“All of our countries will benefit greatly,” Trump said at the signing ceremony, which was held on the margins of a G-20 summit here.

  This fulfills Donald Trump’s campaign promise to renegotiate NAFTA and he has pledged to redo other trade deals as well. Of course this is not official until the legislations of all three countries sign off on it, and you know that the Democrats who have vowed to oppose and resist everything the President does are going to fight tooth and nail to bring take deal down and deny Donald Trump a victory, even if it means hurting the United States.

    Trump has done it again. Things like this and the unending hatred from the Libs just don’t match up. A trade deal between 3 major countries, the whole of North America, is quite an accomplishment. Gonna be curious to see how the Dems oppose it.

      It is amazing how something like this can go totally unreported by the media but it is not surprising. We know it doesn’t matter what is in the deal, the Democrats are going to oppose it. I’m with you, I am curious to see how they spin this into a bad thing in order to oppose it.

    I like CNN for telling me the Party Line. On this one, you won’t find (at time of this writing) the trade deal under any headings on their pages. I had to run a separate search with “Canada Mexico Deal” in order to find their article.

    They buried it.

      I’m not surprised to hear this, it really is sickening they way they are covering this up because it makes the President look good.

    The RINOs sure have their p[late full a month away from turning over the power they did so little with. But now a tax deal, NAFTA, the wall (not Pink Floyd’s),….and they purport to do this in how little time? They probably all did last night’s homework at the breakfast table as school kids. They must believe they can fool all of the people all the time….well obviously they can.

      I predict they will get none of it done in the lame duck Congress and will then spend two years blaming the Democrats even though they had all three branches for two years and did nothing.

    Bye Bye Paul Ryan…. other than that the whole GOP majority was a sham perpetrated on a willing party.
