Trump Pence McSally say it’s time for Pelosi to move on USMCA
President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and other Republicans including Arizona Senator Martha McSally are urging congress to pass the United States Mexico Canada Agreement. USMCA promises to be a replacement to NAFTA, The North America Free Trade Agreement between The United States, Canada and Mexico, in force since January 1994 until President Trump backed out of the deal. Between 1994 and 2008 the United States lost nearly seven hundred thousand manufacturing jobs and the trade deficit with Mexico totaled 97.2 billion. Because of the cheaper labor costs in Mexico, states like California, New York Michigan and Texas lost valuable industries including motor vehicles, textiles, computers and electrical appliances. Arizona Sen. Martha McSally says the Trump administration's trade deal with Mexico and Canada would benefit her home state.
