Trump Signs USMCA, Sealing Political Win With Bipartisan Deal
“He’s talked about USMCA, and he talked about the pro-growth initiatives and the economy that has boomed under him. So he keeps working -- that’s fine,” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said. “They’ll continue to scream impeachment -- that’s fine.”

Trump is like the Energizer Bunny....  He just keep going, and going, and going regardless of what his detractors throw in his way.

Put another way and only old timers will likely remember this.

Trump is like a Timex watch.  He takes a licking and keeps on ticking.   He's driving the left insane.

President Donald Trump signed into law a new trade pact with Canada and Mexico on Wednesday, sealing a political victory that will help neutralize Democratic attacks on his economic record.

The U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA, delivers on one of Trump’s core campaign promises: to replace the Clinton-era North American Free Trade agreement that the president said has drained the U.S. of jobs.

“We are finally ending the Nafta nightmare,” Trump said Wednesday at a signing ceremony on the White House South Lawn. He then read through an extensive list of Republican lawmakers, thanking them for their help passing the deal.

The trade accord marks a rare moment of bipartisanship, but the two sides aren’t sharing the glory. The White House attendance list for the event included 71 Republican lawmakers but no Democrats, who say they weren’t invited. Representative Collin Peterson, the only remaining Democrat to vote against both articles of impeachment against Trump, said through a spokesman that he was invited but couldn’t attend. A White House spokesman didn’t immediately respond to questions on the invitations.

Democrats have taken aim at Trump’s economic policies -- including tax cuts that benefited corporations and the wealthy -- but attacking his approach to trade has proved more complicated as they compete for votes in swing states that have seen manufacturing jobs disappear.

It's so telling that the left has nothing in it's arsenal of vindictiveness that is stopping the man from accomplishing the promises he made on the campaign trail.

TRUMP 2020

This is an interesting little sentence from the article that actually belies that implication.

Representative Collin Peterson, the only remaining Democrat to vote against both articles of impeachment against Trump, said through a spokesman that he was invited but couldn’t attend.

I'll submit that they WERE invited but simply refused to attend.  Kind of like the inauguration.

Only to the Trump Haters of America.

Regardless of your opinion, it is in fact an entirely new deal as recognized by both houses of the US Congress and the Governments of Canada and Mexico.

Not yet. It still has to be ratified by Canada.

Formalities.   They were waiting for us to sign.  And it would have happened over a year ago were it not for Pelosi and her band of merry impeachment nuts.

It is not as simple as them just saying ok.

The Bloc Québécois and NDP have questioned the lack of specific labour protections in the deal. They’ve also objected to the omission of Canadian aluminum from a last-minute provision requiring all steel used in auto manufacturing to be “melted and poured” in North America in order to receive preferential tariff treatment. The Conservatives have not threatened to hold up the deal though they have said they would like to examine it in detail.

“Various industries, various groups have questions and concerns,” Trudeau said in Ottawa. “It’s important we all work together in the House to move forward on this. There will be a certain amount of pressure on Canada from both Mexico and the United States, who want to see this move forward, but we have questions and we have a process for ratification.”

The agreement will likely be tabled in parallel with implementing legislation making necessary tweaks and changes to Canadian law, said Lawrence Herman, an international trade lawyer at Herman & Associates. The legislation will go through three readings and be debated by both the House trade committee and the Senate before receiving royal assent by Governor General Julie Payette. Only then can Trudeau and his cabinet ratify the deal, Herman said.

You have NO CLUE what you are talking about. 

Much of the USMCA is verbatim from NAFTA.

Try Reuters.

Canada’s main opposition Conservative Party has expressed a determination to examine what it calls potentially worrying aspects of the deal, but also says it has no intention of dragging the process out.

Business and industry groups want the Trudeau government to ratify the trade pact as quickly as possible to alleviate economic uncertainty. Free trade is critical to the economies of Canada and Mexico, which both send around 75% of goods to their much larger neighbor.

“It is crucial for businesses that this agreement is ratified in an expeditious manner,” the Canadian Chamber of Commerce said in a statement.

Sounds like if they try to pull what the Democrats did their constituents won't take it well.

What does blaming one side of the political isle for some fictitious view have to do with it.

It is still going to take as long as it is going to take.

Ps. It is their conservative groups that had concerns.

Most contracts and yes, even international deals are often times what people call boiler plate.  A lot of wording is the same and the details are the difference.  

Thanks for pointing that out.
