Now is the time for USMCA
Last November, President Donald J. Trump fulfilled one of his most important promises to voters when he joined leaders from both Canada and Mexico to sign the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA), replacing the outdated NAFTA.
“In short, this is a model agreement that changes the trade landscape forever. And this is an agreement that, first and foremost, benefits working people,” the President said.
Reps. Kevin Brady (R-TX) and Steve Scalise (R-LA) explain that “the U.S. will be losing out on more jobs, more customers for Made-in-America goods and a stronger economy unless the U.S. House of Representatives takes up the updated trade agreement with Mexico and Canada.”
Yesterday, America’s leading manufacturing group upped the pressure on Congress to act. “Passage of this agreement is critical for U.S. manufacturing sector,” said Linda Dempsey, the National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) vice president of international economic affairs.
“Canada and Mexico are manufacturers’ most important partners.”

@ShopFloorNAM Vice President Mike Pence told workers in Jacksonville, Florida, yesterday that “we are not going to allow an outdated trade deal to hurt American manufacturers or American farmers anymore.”
@ShopFloorNAM Under NAFTA, nations like China were able to game the system, shipping their products to Canada or Mexico—and then sending them into the United States duty-free. “Those days are over,” the Vice President said.
@ShopFloorNAM “We’re not going to let them undermine good-paying jobs that build the . . . American middle class in this country, or the middle class I grew up in.”
