The U.S.-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade deal has been sitting on Pelosi’s desk for months.
The deal will reshape the trade agreements between the three countries and would be considered a major win for this administration.
Pelosi, however, is tabling the deal until at least the turn of the calendar simply to keep the headlines negative for President Trump.
Do Your Job, Nancy!
It is no secret that our government is in a holding pattern right now.
Rather than taking care of business, Democrats are completely focused on this impeachment and seem to have no interest in doing anything else.
Even though the House was running the impeachment inquiry, there was nothing holding Pelosi back from putting the USMCA through other than it being a positive headline for Trump.
This deal, though, impacts not only American business owners, but there is also considerable benefit to both Mexico and Canada.
Both countries have been waiting for months for this deal to be ratified in the House, but Pelosi has no interest in doing that.
She is giving every excuse in the book for not putting the trade deal on the House floor, but her only motivation can really be that she wants to continue to allow the negative media coverage to hurt Trump.
Regarding the deal, Pelosi is also dismissing the version that Trump put on her desk as a sham.
Pelosi stated, “We don’t want NAFTA with sugar on top.”
Won’t Happen This Year
With the lack of movement on the deal, it is highly unlikely the House will vote on this before the end of the year.
This means that we will now be a few weeks into the new year before there is even a chance of the House putting the USMCA on the table.
And, based on what Pelosi is saying, Democrats are going to make significant changes to the agreement, which means it may not then get through the Senate or that Trump may not sign it if Dems have changed it too much.
If this were not such a serious matter, it would be comical how much Democrats are manipulating our political process to benefit their party.
We truly need to flush them all from office come November 2020 or this county is doomed.
