USMCA

Conservatives Lukewarm On China Trade Deal Miss The Point

A massive Chinese purchase of agricultural products will pump much needed cash into the economies of a dozen Heartland states before the 2020 election. So, it is little wonder that Donald Trump, always the keen-eyed negotiator started there, instead of with the provisions that benefit Silicon Valley, where he is not going to get any political benefit no matter what he does.

Guest Column: KIll The USMCA Before It Is Too Late

Rich Loudenback says we have almost no time left to wake up Senators and especially President Trump to the defects in the USMCA. If we could only find one person who has his ear to open his eyes to all the dangers in the USMCA perhaps things could be turned around.  In the meantime, Mr. Loudenback says read the agreement and then call your Senators and the White House and tell them to kill it before it is too late.

Trump Going Into 2020 Election: Promises Kept And Results Achieved

President Trump has fulfilled or is making significant progress on most of his 2016 campaign promises, but more important than the promises are the results: More than 7 million jobs have been added to the economy, more job openings than unemployed Americans and wages are growing at their fastest rate in a decade, to name but a few of those listed in today's article.

2020 Starting With Great News On The Economy

“It’s gonna be a boom year in 2020 for the American economy. I’m looking at growth closer to three percent to two percent. I’m looking at the Dow well over 30,000, I predicted that several months ago that if we got USMCA and interest rates down then we’d get over 30,000. It’s gonna be a great year for America,” predicts Assistant to President Donald Trump and Director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro.

Nancy Pelosi's stall tactics hurt America's economy

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

Mrs. Pelosi’s cynical strategy to change the USMCA would bust the trade deal wide open and kill it. Trying to renegotiate a trade deal that has been years in the making is like putting toothpaste back in the tube. Opening up one section of the law makes every section negotiable. Mrs. Pelosi should put America first by putting the political games aside and bringing USCMA to a vote urgently. Democrats promised in 2018 elections that they could govern the country. Obstruction is not governing and blocking free trade deals is no way to keep the Trump economic boom going. I hate to think that may be the point of her political tactics.

Trump's North American trade triumph

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

Despite the plan's virtues, Democrats in Congress are threatening to vote as a bloc to prevent passage of the trade pact. These are the same people who just a few months ago were complaining that Mr. Trump’s “reckless and dangerous” trade policies were harming the economy and alienating our allies. Now he has a deal that helps the economy and unifies our neighbors — and they are against it. They have exposed themselves as free trade hypocrites.

Why Canada’s Trudeau HAD to Sign a Trade Deal with the U.S.

John Fund, National Review

Although all sides gave ground, it was the Canadians who gave up the most and blinked first. Trudeau simply couldn’t afford the domestic political heat he’d face if he proved unable to cut a trade deal with Canada’s largest trading partner. Trudeau’s approval rating in the latest National Campaign Research Poll is down to 39 percent. His Liberal party trails the opposition Conservative party, led by Andrew Scheer, by 39 percent to 37 percent, with the next election due to be held no later than October 2019.
