USMCA replaced NAFTA, is the Model for All Future Trade Agreements

July 3, 2020

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – The United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA) has gone into effect, replacing the outdated North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
 
“President Donald 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,” U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer writes in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

NAFTA is no more

July 1, 2020

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – For over 25 years, Republicans and Democrats alike griped about the North American Free Trade Agreement. Because of its weak, voluntary labor and environmental “rules,” NAFTA cost America millions of jobs and devastated working-class communities.
 
President Trump was one of NAFTA’s earliest critics as far back as the 1990s. Like former President Obama, candidate Trump promised to renegotiate NAFTA if he was elected. Unlike President Obama, Donald Trump kept that promise after taking office.

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “On Friday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order directing federal agencies to fill job vacancies based on merit, rather than require a minimum level of education for candidates seeking open positions,” Preston Cooper reports for Forbes.
 
“Credential inflation shuts out experienced, qualified job candidates who are perfectly capable of filling certain roles simply because they lack the right piece of paper . . .

“Wayne White, a U.S. Air Force veteran, gathered a group of volunteers and began scrubbing the monument clean on Monday morning.
