According to President Trump and other officials, NAFTA is dead. That trade deal lasted for over 25 years and regulated international business relations and protocols. Now, Trump has finally come to an agreement with other North American leaders to revitalize trade relations after over two years of negotiations.
This week, Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which is expected to pass through Congress with bipartisan support. It’s further proof that Trump can continue to do his job in spite of this false impeachment process.
Trump and Pelosi both announced the deal through Twitter.
America’s great USMCA Trade Bill is looking good. It will be the best and most important trade deal ever made by the USA. Good for everybody – Farmers, Manufacturers, Energy, Unions – tremendous support. Importantly, we will finally end our Country’s worst Trade Deal, NAFTA!

However, Pelosi attempted to steal the spotlight by falsely claiming that Democrats were the real heroes behind the new agreement.
With the transformative changes we won, Democrats have achieved a #USMCA agreement that is infinitely better for American workers than what was originally proposed by the Trump Administration. pic.twitter.com/LywXwZjWTy

In spite of Pelosi’s support, Dems have been fiercely opposing the USMCA for months as Ronna McDaniel points out.
Is the timing of Pelosi’s change of heart on #USMCA fooling anyone?
House Democrats have spent months blindly opposing it.

To no one’s surprise, the hypocrisy of Democrats knows no bounds.
