President Trump’s Effort to Push USMCA Through Congress

Dan Trade


In early December, at the G20 summit, Mexican and Canadian officials signed off on the United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA). It was only a matter of time before the U.S. Congress approved and ratified the USMCA replacing NATFA. Now, a month later and no significant progress made, President Trump is looking to get the ball rolling a little faster. His recent efforts to move forward with USMCA include potentially canceling NAFTA. A cancellation of NAFTA would put the pressure on Congress by giving them a six-month deadline before more tariffs are added on to more goods.
