Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the announcement of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement:

“President Trump has proved his critics wrong again by delivering on his promise to renegotiate NAFTA in America’s favor.

“The USMCA is the most impressive result yet of the Trump Administration’s trade agenda, which is focused on increasing our nation’s industrial capacity and protecting high-quality jobs for American workers.

“The proposed deal is the most significant update of North American trade rules in more than two decades. It includes promising measures to govern new technologies, protect intellectual property, support high-paying jobs for workers, and open access to foreign markets for American goods.

“I applaud the Trump Administration for its effective diplomacy with our friends in Mexico and Canada. I look forward to working with the Administration and America’s workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses in order to pass an agreement that serves the interests of our country.”
