USMCA replaced NAFTA, is the Model for All Future Trade Agreements

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – The United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA) has gone into effect, replacing the outdated North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
 
“President Donald Donald Trump was elected in part on his promise to change the direction of U.S. trade policy so it would put America first. He has kept that promise with new trade agreements and tough enforcement actions that break down foreign trade barriers, protect America’s competitive edge and stop the outsourcing of U.S. jobs,” U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer writes in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “The economy has added around 7.3 million jobs in the past two months.

NAFTA is no more

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – For over 25 years, Republicans and Democrats alike griped about the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Because of its weak, voluntary labor and environmental “rules,” NAFTA cost America millions of jobs and devastated working-class communities.
 
President Trump was one of NAFTA’s earliest critics as far back as the 1990s. Like former President Barack Obama, candidate Donald Trump promised to renegotiate NAFTA if he was elected. Unlike President Obama, Donald Trump kept that promise after taking office.

President Donald Trump will protect American History

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – For more than a month, there has been a sustained assault on American civilians, law enforcement officers, public and private property, and national treasures such as the Lincoln Memorial.

President Donald Trump Is Reversing Credential Inflation in the Federal Workforce

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “On Friday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order directing federal agencies to fill job vacancies based on merit, rather than require a minimum level of education for candidates seeking open positions,” Preston Cooper reports for Forbes.
 
“Credential inflation shuts out experienced, qualified job candidates who are perfectly capable of filling certain roles simply because they lack the right piece of paper . . . Most perniciously, it convinces young job seekers that they need a bachelor’s degree or even a graduate degree to succeed.”

Lamar Alexander says Millions Who Admire President Donald Trump Would Follow His Lead If He Wore a Mask When Appropriate

 

U.S. SenateMaryville, TN – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today told Manu Raju on CNN’s “Inside Politics” that “millions of Americans who admire President Donald Trump would follow his lead if he wore a mask when it’s appropriate.” Senator Alexander, who is chairman of the Senate health committee, said that “It also would help to get rid of this political debate that if you’re for President Trump, you don’t wear a mask, and if you’re against President Donald Trump, you do wear a mask.”

“Most of the time he’s with people who have been tested, he’s been tested,” Alexander continued, “but there are times when he could wear a mask or the vice president could wear a mask. I think it would be a sign of strength if he would from time to time wear a mask and remind everyone it’s a good way [to slow the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus].”

Marsha Blackburn Report: Protecting the Symbols of Our Nation

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Statues and other symbols of our history serve as a reminder of how far we have come as a nation. As Americans, we have a responsibility to talk about our successes, our mistakes, and what we want our future to look like.

The First Amendment protects our right to peacefully protest, and to petition the government for change.

The violent acts committed by the professional agitators encouraging mob rule and anarchy, however, are crimes.
