USMCA Trade Deal: DONE! Next...

Great job Mr. President!  

 

Another promise kept.

 

Thanks for getting this done instead of all the lip service past politicians have been giving the American workers.  It makes me wonder of the past guys were even trying.

 

Thanks!!

This thread has been a lot of fun but isn't Canada part of the USMCA? Anyone bother to check on whether Canada signed this? Taking Trump's word for it is ridiculous. Taking Big Orange's word for anything is ridiculous. This deal is "DONE" like Mexico paying for the wall is done. It's done like North Korea ending their nuclear weapons program is done.

 

Great job Mr. President. You fooled the rabble yet again.

USMCA Trade Deal: DONE!

Even Ms Pelosi likes the deal. Yet we have the same posters that always can not stand it when or President does good for ALL citizens of our country. Why do they hate Trump so bad that they want our country to not do good? Why?

Why shouldn't Ms. Pelosi like the deal she negotiated? Trump caved on everything and the Democrats got what they wanted included.

 

The question now is will Canada and Mexico agree with the deal since they weren't party to the negotiations. Of course, since this 'new' deal is basically NAFTA they probably will agree with minor changes.

All of a sudden it's "Ms" Pelosi.

This is yet another example of the alternate reality bubble of Trump/Fox World where facts and the truth are irrelevant. Members of Trump's own party criticized this deal as a total cave in to the demands of Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party. They said Trump was so desperate for a trade deal, he agreed to give away the store.

 

GOP senators expressed irritation over not being looped into the final-stage negotiation, which resulted in the White House making major concessions and ultimately won the endorsement of the AFL-CIO, one of the nation’s leading labor unions. 

 

Republican Senator Cornyn said, " said he didn’t like how the Senate was cut out of the process. “I don’t like the fact that a hundred senators on a bipartisan basis are denied the opportunity to participate in the negotiations as opposed to just, ‘take it or leave it,’” he said.

 

“There are a lot of us that are not real pleased with some of the provisions in there,” said Sen Ron Johnson.(R-Wis.), who aired his concerns during the meeting. “Truthfully, why didn’t we move to ratify this when we had Speaker Ryan” in control of the House, he asked. “I still just scratch my head at that, I don’t get it,” Johnson said.

 

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) stood up in the Senate Republican lunch Thursday to speak at length about his concerns with the deal, which he fears will stifle free trade and lead to only modest job growth over the next few years, according to senators who attended the meeting. Toomey has highlighted the dismantling of the investor-state dispute settlement program, which allows investors to sue governments over environmental, health and other regulations they believe are  discriminatory.

You are exactly correct, except for this.........................the base doesn't know a good deal from a bad deal. They are only capable of cheerleading in the peanut gallery for anything Trump does, even if it cuts their own throats.

trump wants to take credit for creating a mess...but others have fix his mess. 
A lot of credit may need to go to the Democrats...the agreement is not perfect, but Dems were able to make a number of revisions which made it more

agreeable and a better agreement.

LOL!!  

 

The glass is half empty club continues to believe the sky is falling and Trump is the devil!

 

 It must be terrible to spend day after day in that very dark place so I suggest you folks pace yourself. Trump will get 4 more years and it will really suck for people that are so inflicted with such an enormous amount of hate for another human being...

 

This too shall pass.

Well you are correct the sky is falling and the first to start an feel the life and death part of it are our military in the middle east. Iraq wants us out. We just had 50 injured in the Iran missile attack. Our troops used to be welcomed when they entered an area but now they are not. The troops they train could now be the ones who kill them. Every member of our military in the Middle East is now a target. How many will we have to loose before the Trump enablers realize what they have created, and done to fellow Americans.
