President Donald Trump will make his first public statement Monday about the new trade agreement struck between the U.S., Mexico and Canada, the White House said.
Trump, who has already taken a victory lap about the deal to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement on Twitter, will deliver his remarks on the United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) in the White House’s Rose Garden, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a tweet Monday morning.
- The United States and Canada have agreed to a deal replacing the North American Free Trade Agreement, according to a senior U.S. administration official.
- The new deal has been deemed the USMCA — the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement — the official says.
- Canada, America’s second largest trading partner, was left out when the U.S. and Mexico reached a preliminary deal in late August to revamp NAFTA.
