Late Sunday, the Trump administration announced it had reached a three-way trade agreement with Canada and Mexico, the U.S. -Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), replacing the NAFTA agreement that had been in place since 1994.
The rarely expressed sentiment from Trump was reasonable - Congress might well not vote to ratify the agreement.
"The deal includes a substantial increase in our farmers' opportunities to export American wheat, poultry, eggs and dairy, including milk, butter, cheese, yogurt and ice cream, to name a few", Trump said. He added that over the last 10 years, the United States has enjoyed a trade surplus with Brazil of US$90 billion (RM373.3 billion) in goods, and of US$250 billion in goods and services. "It's an unbelievable deal for a lot of people".
Foreign outsourcing for US automotive production will be reduced under the deal, said Trump, who predicted "once USMCA is approved, it will be a new dawn for the USA auto industry and the USA auto worker", turning the country again into "a manufacturing powerhouse".
"Making progress, we'll see where we end up", said the official by email, speaking on condition of anonymity.
