Trump urges Congress to pass US-Mexico-Canada trade pact

US President Donald Trump on Friday urged Congress to pass the United States-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement (USMCA).

He labeled the old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) as one of the world's worst trade deals ever and called on Congress to view the USMCA as a bipartisan bill and approve it so that he could sign it into law.

While Mexico has ratified the USMCA and Canada has taken steps to approve aspects of the deal, the pact has stalled in Congress as House Democrats push for additional assurances on environmental and labor protection.
