Glad that's over and that nothing's changed much. Trump sure worried many over GMs and butter.

I knew Justin would get with the program.

Trump just keeps on winning every time he solves a problem that he created. Why can't the liberal MSM stop reporting on Truml's words and actions andstart reporting on all the self-inflicted problems he's solved?

Chip: copy-paste that. Future actions guarantee the phrase's frequent reuse.

Everything that was expected to happen, did, and it didn't need to take a year of USA grandstanding, but that was their choice. In the end a better deal than CPTPP but similar terms. Ended Chaper 11 suing capability and kept word for word Chapter 19, the dispute resolution system, with 3.6% dairy market exposure up from the CPTPP 3.25%. Chapter 7 milk pricing was eliminated for Wisconsin farmers so that's a win for the USA. Dairy is dropping across NA anyway due to plant milks so it won't be a factor. We're good

NAFTA is no more. It is now USMCA. New terms, new categories and more fairer for the U.S.

Another campaign promise kept. Winning!!!

-3 ( +8 / -11 )

definite winning. Much better deal for the USA.

I am quite sure it’s not a coincidence the new deal is called the United States-Mexico-Canada agreement.

Dems, US chamber of commerce all said its unacceptable to not include Canada. So now they are what will Chuckie Schumer not like about the deal now?

When the not that smart trumpists think about a deal they think about the transactions they make on a daily basis at McD for a happy meal.

Congress demanded Canada to be part of the deal and the POTUS who's currently at a 'humble' point along his wave obeyed.

YMCA !

Young man, there's no need to feel down.

I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground.

I said, young man, 'cause you're in a new town

There's no need to be unhappy.

Of course it's not a coincidence it's the United States-Mexico-Canada agreement; Trunp puts America first. MAGA. The alternate: Canada-United States - Mexico (CUSM) was already taken.

Of course trump had to change it to some unpronounceable acronym so that he can brag about it being his.People will just keep calling it NAFTA though,which is better.

Another win and just before the midterms guessing there's a few Democrats sweating

-2 ( +4 / -6 )

POTUS Trump undeniably has a winning hand on trade in favor of Americans and fairer deals. That’s what matters, in the end. The American Way Of Life is based on good economy, on good administrations.

We are winning, aren't we. The progress on the DPRK, the intelligence agencies would be happy to describe that, being tough in Putin, getting NAFTA re-named, and getting Kavanaugh confirmed. So much winning! MAGMA!

Yep so much winning that you had to go off topic to claim otherwise. So let’s see how hard Dems try to block this. The harder they try the more of a win it actually is.

“The renegotiated NAFTA, if approved by lawmakers in all three countries, would mark a win for Trump, who has long decried the Clinton-era trade pact as one of the "worst" deals in history.”

Only the subsequent years will know if it'll actually change anything much

Lost in understanding trade, economy with the American Way of Life not returning to most Americans :)

@Blacklabel: “The renegotiated NAFTA, if approved by lawmakers in all three countries, would mark a win for Trump, who has long decried the Clinton-era trade pact as one of the "worst" deals in history.”

And Dems, who are militant about not giving Trump credit for anything that can be considered a success, will now reflexively attack the new trade agreement despite the obvious benefits to the upper midwest farming industry. Can you imagine the effect it would have if a large number of Dems vote against an agreement that so greatly benefits the electoral college vote rich midwest?

Heh, there goes President Trump using that "magic wand" obama talked about again.

MAGA/KAG!

Absolutely. Freakin Dems and their hatred of American farmers. President Donald J. Trump loves farmers, which is why he gave them billions in welfare after his trade war started harming them. MAGMA!

Trump sure is using a magic wand to fix issues he brought on himself! Go Trump! Keep making issues where there are none, and then fixing them. That's what is conservstibes love about you!
