Nancy Pelosi finally allowed the House to vote on the USMCA trade agreement today. The deal represents a major victory for President Trump, which is the primary reason this vote had been subject to months of unnecessary delays.
While there are numerous provisions within the USMCA, ultimately what it does is help level the playing field for trade between our three nation. The result will be more than half a million new American jobs, higher wages for our workers, and more opportunities for U.S. businesses. While it’s not a perfect agreement, the benefits of this deal will be substantial.
Just a few minutes ago, I was happy to cast my vote to approve.
