President Trump’s unemployment numbers are staggering, with a record number of Americans able to find gainful employment. The figures rival records that have been held for decades in the United States, and have affected all Americans positively, across demographics.
Now, as The Donald faces a tough trade adversary in Beijing, he’s turning his attention to our northern neighbors as the he puts the finishing touches on the USMCA.
President Donald Trump has announced a deal with Canada and Mexico that would scrap “major tariffs,” ending a simmering trade dispute that began when the president imposed tariffs on imported steel and aluminum in the name of national security.
Trump addressed the agreement while speaking before The National Association of Realtors. He urged Congress to approve a new trade pact between the three nations to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Trump did not mention the tariffs he imposed last year on steel and aluminum imports. But he said “we’ll be selling our product into those countries without the imposition of tariffs, or major tariffs.”

While not a directly related industry, farmers in the US suffer mightily when other nations issue retaliatory tariffs against American goods.
