HISTORY MADE! Trump Just Pulled Off The Impossible For America!

Since President Trump took office he has made it clear one of his top priorities would be renegotiating the terms of the North American Free Trade Agreement, otherwise known as NAFTA. His goal was to resolve various trade issues that he had previously campaign on. In the past, while it became a contentious issue both Canada and Mexico, they indicated they would be open to negotiating with President Trump.

Now, there have been increasingly large and substantial developments on the NAFTA front. This past week President Trump took part in meetings to finalize the new agreement. And those plans have now been formalized.

“When Trump was running for president, the media elites constantly lectured us about how he had no idea what he was talking about. They told us that the promises he was making were unreasonable and he could never accomplish any of those things. Flash forward two years and it’s abundantly clear that the media couldn’t have been more wrong.

For example, Trump promised that he was going to create jobs, boost the economy, and increase growth. The media laughed. The economy took off. There are plenty of things you can point to that Trump has accomplished that Democrats promised us he couldn’t. The latest example is NAFTA. Trump promised that he was going to renegotiate NAFTA and come up with a trade deal that puts the American people first. Many in the media said he could never get that done.

Chalk this one up as yet another example of Trump doing what he said he would do. We don’t see that from many politicians. He’s going to be tough to beat in 2020 especially when you look at the unimpressive bench the Democrats currently have.”

“President Trump on Monday announced a hard-fought trade pact with Canada and Mexico meant to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, saying the deal would bring a “new dawn” for American auto workers.

“This is a truly extraordinary agreement for the United States, Canada and Mexico,” Trump said in the Rose Garden, surrounded by his trade-negotiating team. Trump spoke after it emerged that Canada and Mexico had agreed to a pact the administration has dubbed the “United States Mexico Canada Agreement,” or USMCA.

In a joint statement, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said the agreement “will strengthen the middle class, and create good, well-paying jobs and new opportunities for the nearly half billion people who call North America home.””


New provisions with the U.S.- Mexico – Canada Agreement (USMCA) provide for several different things. These include labor conditions, digital trade, manufactured products, as well as agriculture produce just to name a few. However, one of the most prominent aspects of the USMCA was the inclusion of American dairy farmers who were given better access to the Canadian market.
As well, new guidelines were imposed that allow for a higher proportion of cars to be manufactured amongst all three countries instead of being imported from elsewhere. The dispute resolution system which as previously in place under NAFTA largely remained the same.

Provisions for automobiles will now allow no tariffs on trucks or cars that have 75 percent of their interior and exterior components that are manufactured in the three countries. This is an exponential and critical increased from the currently 62.5 percent requirement that is in place under NAFTA.
In the USMCA the dairy provisions are higher than the ones that Canada had initially agree to in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). But, the TPP was never ratified. This will allow the United States to have tariff-free access at 3.6 percent to the Canadian dairy market which is higher than what was under the TPP (3.25%). The Canadian dairy market is worth a total of $15.2 billion.

Canada has officially agreed to get rid of Class 7 pricing provisions on specific dairy products. While their domestic supply management will be allowed to remain in place as is. Finally, they also agree to raise the limit on duty-free products regarding purchases from the United States to $150. It was previously at the level of $20.
30 percent of the work on any vehicle must also be done by employees or workers who are earning a minimum of $16 an hour. Something that is a win for middle-class Americans who work in factories across the United States. These new changes appear to be big wins for the United States, especially as it pertains to international trade agreements. This has been a staple of the Trump administration and a policy they have finally upheld.
