Last week, Congressional Democrats and President Trump announced major progress in forging a new North American trade deal, called the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement by President Trump.  The USMCA includes some hard-fought changes such as greater environmental and labor protections and has so far gained approval from some of the staunchest opponents of the original NAFTA.
