Trade Deal Between America, Mexico And Canada Anticipated

Nancy Pelosi, U.S. House of Representatives Speaker, expressed support for trade deal between US, Canada and Mexico on better enforcement of its labor provisions. President Donald Trump and top administration officials put pressure on Pelosi and Congress to approve the trade agreement through scores of coordinated interviews with talk radio stations and aggressive social media postings.

They are pressing for quick passage of the trade agreement that will replace the $1 trillion North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), but have faced opposition from labor unions worried about losing jobs. “We can reach an agreement on USMCA when the Trade Representative makes the new NAFTA agreement enforceable for America’s workers,” Pelosi said in a joint statement with House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal after the two Democrats met with AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.
