Trump signs new trade deal with Canada and Mexico

Canada on track for Friday signing of USMCA once details finalized: Freeland

"This has been a battle, and battles sometimes make great friendships, so it's really terrific", Trump said, before lining up next to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and outgoing Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto to sign three copies of the deal - Trump using a black marker for his signature scrawl.

"The USMCA is the largest, most significant, modern and balanced trade agreement in history", Trump said during the signing ceremony on Friday.

Speaking at the ceremony, Trudeau referred to the accord as a "new North American Free Trade Agreement" and described it as "modernizing NAFTA", despite Trump's preferred branding as USMCA.

"In addition, we urge the administration to turn its full attention to other trade issues that are harming our state, including the retaliatory tariffs China has levied on ME lobster and import taxes on steel that have significantly increased costs for manufacturers", the senators said.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was truer to the nature of the deal in his remarks at the signing, saying it "maintains stability", "lifts the risk of serious economic uncertainty", and secures the duty-free access to markets achieved under NAFTA.

Other Democrats, backed by unions that oppose the pact, have called for stronger enforcement provisions for new labour and environmental standards, arguing that USMCA's state-to-state dispute settlement mechanism is too weak. It covers the same three countries as before.

"We began with a very strong USA demand that we abolish the system of [dairy] supply management entirely", Ms. Freeland said.

The chapter on agriculture in the deal has reportedly not alleviated the Canadian agriculture industry's fear that the United States strong-armed its way to getting more than Canada meant to give up, according to a Canadian newspaper report.

A positive development, added the group's trade campaigner Sujata Dey, was that some of their long-standing demands had been met. It also exempts the first $40 from Canadian sales tax. "The existing text. grants the US oversight into the administration of our Canadian dairy system, which undermines Canadian sovereignty and ability to manage Canadian dairy without USA intervention".

The new agreement does make some changes to the way business is done in North America.

Raptors win 131-128 against Warriors in overtime
And true to Curry's word, the 5s are, as of Thursday afternoon, listed under the girls' section on Under Armour's website. In the 10 games that Curry has missed, the Warriors are 5-5.

It's not the end of the road for the deal. One of the most notable changes has to do with the way cars and trucks are manufactured. The revised pact, which comes after a long, hard negotiation, won't replace NAFTA until it's been approved by the legislatures of all three countries. In the US, as Politico notes, that could mean "months of fierce debate between the Trump administration and Congress".

USMCA must now be ratified by the U.S. Congress before taking effect - and legislators on both sides of the aisle have already signalled they could give the deal a rough ride. "And Donald, it's all the more reason why we need to keep working to remove the tariffs on steel and aluminum between our two countries".

US objections to Canada's protected internal market for dairy products was a major challenge facing negotiators during the talks, and Trump repeatedly demanded concessions and accused Canada of hurting USA farmers.

"We are waiting to see enforcement provisions relating to workers and the environment", Pelosi said Friday in a statement, reiterating her discontent with the deal.

Browns' Damarious Randall handed the ball to Hue Jackson after an interception
Mayfield has thrown for 2,242 yards and 17 touchdowns since taking over the Browns starting job from Tyrod Taylor in Week 4. The Browns were bothered by the sight of their former coach on the other sideline plotting against them.

According to Hansen-Kuhn, "Legislatures in all three countries should insist that negotiators go back to the drawing board or reject this new NAFTA all together".
