The president of one of the largest unions in America has offered his support for President Trump’s new North American Trade Agreement.
According to The Hill:
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka announced Tuesday that the powerful labor confederation will support President Trump’s new North American trade deal, paving the way for likely passage in the Democratic-controlled House.
Trumka said in a statement that the AFL-CIO endorses Trump’s proposed revamp of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) after Democrats successfully negotiated for tougher labor standards.
“Make no mistake, we demanded a trade deal that benefits workers and fought every single day to negotiate that deal,” Trumka said, “and now we have secured an agreement that working people can proudly support.”
His endorsement came moments before Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.) announced a deal to pass the trade pact, dubbed the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
The growing support for the deal almost guarantees its passage all while the Democrats continue to call President Trump a threat to America.
