Skip to comments.Peter Navarro: USMCA is Trump's vision (not Pelosi's) -- and a shining example of promises made, promises kept

The old saw that victory has a thousand fathers took on a new twist Tuesday as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced that she supports an affirmative vote on the best trade deal ever negotiated by an American president the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
Remember that Pelosi, along with more than 100 other Democrats, voted for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in 1993.
In sharp contrast, there should be no mistake about this: Donald Trump was a NAFTA critic from the get-go. The USMCA is President Trumps vision, and it is a poster child of yet another promise made and promise kept for American workers.
Presidential candidate Trump promised in June 2016 during his historic jobs plan speech to immediately renegotiate NAFTA to get a better deal for our workers.
President Trump kept that promise on November 30, 2018 when he signed the USMCA with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the G-20 Summit in Argentina.
USMCAs centerpiece is a set of regional content rules that will restore North America as the strategic and global hub of automobile manufacturing and act as a counterweight to the unfair trade practices of both Asian and European automakers.
Under USMCA, 75 percent of the content of automobiles must be made in the U.S., Mexico or Canada to qualify for duty-free treatment.
To ensure that American workers get their fair share of auto and auto parts production, the USMCA also imposes tough environmental and labor restrictions to prevent too much of that production from moving south of the border.

I’m skeptical... What did they do to poison it?
Nancy will win a few awards for her great work with the USMCA ,LOL
I already read negatives re: replacing illegals through automation.. Automation lost.
The articles were freep.
My dad told me they are slipping amnesty in there.
Haven’t read it myself yet. But I wouldn’t doubt this is the plan.
A provision for the unions was written in the text of the agreement. Maybe that is popular in some niches of the political world.
Still, thee is not much limit on what COULD be accomplished, if you don’t make a big point of who gets the credit.
The scumedia will put Pelosi’s face on it as if it was her idea
