posted by Hannity Staff - 10.01.18

Negotiators from the United States and Canada announced a new North American trade agreement over the weekend; officially ending NAFTA and unveiling the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement -better known as the USMCA.

Officials from both countries released a statement Sunday evening ahead of the self-imposed midnight deadline; saying the new free trade agreement will benefit “workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses” on all sides of the border.

“USMCA will give our workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses a high-standard trade agreement that will result in freer markets, fairer trade and robust economic growth in our region,” the joint statement said. “It will strengthen the middle class, and create good, well-paying jobs and new opportunities for the nearly half billion people who call North America home.”

The President weighed-in on the international trade deal Monday morning; saying “Congratulations to Mexico and Canada!”
