    President Trump often says that his “America First” foreign policy does not mean “America Alone.” Nowhere is this better exemplified than in the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). USMCA is a trilateral trade deal that replaces the outdated, ineffective North American Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and better positions the American economy and its private sector for success. USMCA reflects the reality of the United States’ expansive trade relationships with Canada and Mexico, ensuring that American companies are protected while operating abroad and the American people are reaping the benefits of cross-border partnership. It also provides assurance that in times of natural...

    Border Report ^ | Sep 30, 2020 | Julian Resendiz
    Border industry is poised for explosive growth in the next few years, as companies take heed of lessons learned in the COVID-19 pandemic and relocate more production to North America, trade experts say. Many U.S. manufacturers who get supplies from China experienced delays during the pandemic, which added to brewing concerns over already tense trade relations between both countries. “We have a huge number of U.S. companies doing business with China. […] Any number of consumer goods come from China but all those companies are coming under the realization that there is trade tensions that are going to continue regardless...

    EXETER, Pa. — As traffic made its way down Schooley Avenue on Tuesday, the giant Trump signs on Jeff Davis’ porch were impossible to miss. “Make America Great Again,” one read. “No more bulls—,” proclaimed another. Vice President Mike Pence would hold a rally down the road a few hours later in this former coal mining town, but Davis wasn’t going. He suffers from rheumatoid arthritis and says his immune system is “down to nothing.” Standing on his front lawn, Davis, 57, motioned to his wife and daughter on the porch. “I’m still very leery on the COVID thing,” he...

    Never mind. Liars should never write books. Books are a real problem. Because liars always have to be ready to change their stories, and once a book is released, there’s no changing it. The book says what it says, and it’s out there for people to read. If you now want to say something different, how do you deal with the fact that your own book is floating around contradicting you? But Hillary Clinton has to change her story because that’s what she does, so the fact that she wrote a book in 2014 bragging about getting other nations to...

    New polling confirms Americans are not as crazy and clueless as their mainstream media. Despite all the media BS about peaceful protests, Americans are not so willing to go along with ripping down all the statues of heroes and saints, burning and looting the business districts and threats to abolish the police. According to a new poll by Democracy Institute the fallout from the Black Lives Matter protests and riots will win President Trump his reelection.

    Asian Nikkei Review ^ | 07/06/2020 | SHUJI NAKAYAMA and RYO ASAYAMA
    The new North American free trade agreement that goes into effect Wednesday was touted by U.S. President Donald Trump as an engine of American job creation. But Japan's automakers are largely opting instead to keep operations in place and pay Mexican workers more or even just pay tariffs. The US-Mexico-Canada Agreement requires 40% or more of parts for each passenger vehicle be manufactured by workers who are paid at least $16 per hour as a condition to make them tariff free in the region. Trump hailed that feature as a way to boost production in the U.S., which has a...

    OTTAWA—Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is taking a pass on a meeting this week with U.S. President Donald Trump and Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. Trudeau’s office says he wishes the two countries and their leaders well but Trudeau will remain in Ottawa for a cabinet retreat and a scheduled sitting of Parliament. Lopez Obrador is travelling to D.C. in part to celebrate the entry-into-force of the new North American free-trade deal and had expressed hope Trudeau would join as well.

    The USMCA is now in full effect. It replaces the decades old North America Free Trade Agreement. According to the USDA, Canada and Mexico were our top two trading partners in 2019. They also say that the USMCA contains significant improvements to rules of origin, ag market access, and labor issues. The U.S. Treasury Department's Monica Crowley believes that those improvements will have a very positive impact on our farmers and ranchers. "President Trump promised that he would scrap NAFTA, which was a horrendous trade deal, particularly for our nation's farmers... He promised to scrap that and replace it with...

Thanks to the bold leadership of President Trump, the agreement will mean stronger economic growth, more jobs for American workers, and fairer trade for our country.

The agreement will drive job creation and includes the strongest, most advanced, and comprehensive set of labor provisions of any United States trade agreement. American farmers will have access to fairer markets in Canada and Mexico, opening up more opportunities to export their goods. USMCA will strengthen American manufacturing, including incentivizing investment...

    President Donald Trump was elected in part on his promise to change the direction of U.S. trade policy so it would put America first. He has kept that promise with new trade agreements and tough enforcement actions that break down foreign trade barriers, protect America’s competitive edge and stop the outsourcing of U.S. jobs. A key Trump success — and an important promise kept — has been to end the job-killing North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and replace it with a complete and long-overdue transformation. To replace NAFTA, Trump negotiated a modern, state-of-the-art trade agreement with Mexico and Canada...
