Senate Votes to Approve USMCA

HeadlineJan 17, 2020

The Senate has voted to approve the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, the replacement for NAFTA, or the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement. Thursday’s 89-10 vote means the legislation now heads to Trump’s desk, where he’s expected to sign it. Among those who voted against the trade deal was Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who was the only current 2020 Democratic presidential candidate to oppose the deal. He says it doesn’t do enough to combat climate change. The other presidential candidates in the Senate — Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar and Michael Bennet — all supported the deal. The Senate’s approval of the USMCA comes only one day after Trump signed a separate trade deal with China.
