Schumer: Trump 'deserves praise' for work to fix Mexico, Canada trade deal

Boy you know that was real hard for Chuck Schumer to admit publicly.  It must be that this is a very good deal; one which the Democrats are unable to deny!

President Trump gets to take a MAGA victory lap just before the midterms!


Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., gave President Trump rare praise Monday for the renegotiated trade deal between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada announced earlier in the day.

Schumer said that Trump "deserves praise" for taking "large steps" to improve the outgoing North American Free Trade Agreement, which Trump had derided for years as a "disaster." The new deal, known as the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA, was reached late Sunday night between the three countries after months of negotiations.

“As someone who voted against NAFTA and opposed it for many years, I knew it needed fixing. The president deserves praise for taking large steps to improve it," Schumer said. "However, any final agreement must be judged on how it benefits and protects middle-class families and the working people in our country."

As the article I link in the other thread explains, the "new" YMCA Nafta clone is basically the same as the old Nafta, with relatively minor tweaks.

It's typical Trumpian reverse Pottery Barn tactics: He breaks it, we buy it.

This is huge huge news. Major fix to a major problem.

Also clear proof trump works with outger countries to create wins for all.

So much for the never ending mantra of trump the radical nationalist isolationist.

One wonders why this 90s era debacle was ignored so long.

LMAO.. The reason Schumer is so complementary is that this agreement is pretty much the same as what was being negotiated during the Obama administration .,.  Grin

But let's humor your wacky and emotional knee-jerk reaction ..

Please Pee.. What "Major fixes" to "major problems" do you see in the new NAFTA 2018 agreement.?  Be specific.

Fids anyone who has been attn to these negotiations and nafta in general knows the major major flaws in tbe deal originally negotiated or given away and the fantastic new agreement

Here is a rundown of old flawed horrible negotiated agreement and it’s replacement

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/business/2018/10/01/...

Pay special attention to the huge win for workers in tbe auto industry. Major major stuff for lower and middle class wirkers. Great job trump and leaders of Mexico and Canada.

This is how countries can and should work together.

In other words:

More protectionist policies.  Anti-free trade.  Regulated wages and industries.

Wtf are you celebrating exactly?

There is a reason why the Democrats might find this to be a good deal.

If you believe in the free market and free trade this is -not- something to be celebrated.  There is nothing -free- trade about it.

Protecting key raw manterials and industries is not always a bad thing. Unless u like tbe idea of being almost 100 percent dependent on foreign countries for steel and aluminum - which are somewhat critical materials for a couple industries.

You are equating trading for cheaper resources as being dependent.  We can produce plenty of steel and aluminum, we aren't dependent, people and businesses just choose to use cheaper foreign products.

The The Trans-Pacific Partnership or the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement would have done the same.  Trump is such a con artist.

You are wrong. Over 90 percent is imported and our factories and mills are not operating. They don’t just sit idle. They’ve closed over the years. Personally I’d like to see it move to 50 percent dependence over the next 10 years.
