With NAFTA-busting deal, Trump negotiates his re-election

Anyone who has lived in this country for over 20 years is likely to notice the loss of manufacturing jobs as they have moved to Mexico and Asia.  This was one of several reasons why Donald Trump was elected president.  He has now concluded two trade agreements, one with South Korea, little noticed by the media, and the USMCA deal, which was reached Oct. 1, 2018.  The media have spent so much time on the Brett Kavanaugh allegations that they hardly mention this agreement.  Afterall, this is a big win for Trump (which they said could not be done) and another promise kept.

What are the changes, and how will they affect the three nations?  In a joint statement, U.S. trade representative Robert Lighthizer and Canadian foreign affairs minister Chrystia Freeland said the agreement “will strengthen the middle class, and create good, well-paying jobs and new opportunities for the nearly half billion people who call North America home.”  Outgoing Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto has a success and has relieved President-Elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador the headache of negotiations.  This is a win for all three countries.  The loser is likely to be China, with more interaction within North America.
