Madam Speaker, Mr. Vice President, members of Congress, the First Lady of the United States — (applause) — and my fellow citizens:
Three years ago, we launched the great American comeback. Tonight, I stand before you to share the incredible results.

Washington, D.C. – In just a short time, U.S. President Donald J. Trump will deliver his third State of the Union Address. This year’s theme reflects the President’s can-do optimism versus the Swamp’s baseless pessimism: It’s The Great American Comeback!
A Big Win For Our Farmers And Manufacturers
Washington, D.C. – This week, I joined President Donald Trump at the White House for the signing of the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA). This agreement is crucial to the success of the American economy.
Over the past two decades, Tennessee auto exports to Canada and Mexico have more than doubled; thousands of Tennessee jobs depend on manufacturing. The USMCA will also help our small businesses succeed by cutting red tape and will make it easier to tap into foreign markets.
Washington, D.C. – President Donald Trump flew to Michigan Thursday, January 20th, 2020, where he joined workers to celebrate the signing of his new U.S.–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA) and the end of NAFTA.
Dana Incorporated, where the President spoke, perfectly captures America’s blue-collar spirit. Based near Detroit, the company employs more than 1,500 workers that help assemble some of the toughest vehicles in the world. Dana Inc., for example, helped invent the iconic U.S. Army Jeep in 1941.
Washington, D.C. – “As a candidate, Donald Donald Trump called NAFTA the ‘worst trade deal ever’ and vowed its replacement. On Wednesday, he fulfilled that promise, signing the new United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA) trade pact covering North America. The deal is Trump’s biggest yet—in fact the biggest in history,” foreign policy and diplomacy expert Christian Whiton writes for Fox Business.
“The deal is an unequivocal win for America and will help Canada and Mexico over the long run.”
Washington, D.C. – U.S. President Donald Trump made history today, signing the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA) and keeping his signature promise to end the NAFTA era.
Washington, D.C. – “Skeptics of President Donald Trump’s bold way of negotiating trade ate a bit of crow this month. That includes this Iowa senator,” Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) writes in the Des Moines Register.
Lamar Alexander says President Donald Trump Signs USMCA – Very Good News for Tennessee Workers, Especially Autoworkers
Alexander Says trade agreement preserves elimination of tariffs, which has helped Tennessee nearly triple its auto jobs since NAFTA was enacted in 1994
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today, Wednesday, January 29th, 2020, released the following statement after President Donald Trump signed into law the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) Implementation Act:
“Today, President Trump signed into law the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Implementation Act. This is very good news for Tennessee workers, especially autoworkers, in 88 of our 95 counties. It updates the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) of 1994, which was also good for Tennessee because it meant we would have no tariffs on what we trade back and forth from Mexico and Canada,” Senator Alexander said.
Washington, D.C. – After over a year of delay tactics from the House Democrats, this week the Senate was finally able to pass the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement, which updates a trade deal that pre-dates the existence of mobile phones and will benefit Tennessee farmers, manufacturers and small business owners.
Tennessee already exports over $13.7 billion a year in goods and services to Canada and Mexico, and the USMCA will make it easier for Americans to do business with our neighbors.
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after he voted for and the Senate passed, by a bipartisan vote of 89-10, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Act (USMCA):
“Today, the United States Senate approved the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. This is very good news for Tennessee workers, especially autoworkers, in 88 of our 95 counties,” stated Senator Alexander.
“It updates the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) of 1994, which was also good for Tennessee because it meant we would have no tariffs on what we trade back and forth from Mexico and Canada,” Senator Alexander said.
