After what AMLO called "a friendly nudge" this morning with regard mixing the progress of the USMCA Deal and the farcical impeachment process; AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka has told WaPo that there is a deal.
Trump announced the U.S.-Mexico-Canada agreement (USMCA) more than a year ago, but negotiations with House Democrats have been lengthy as leaders pushed for stronger labor and environmental regulations.
"We have pushed them hard and have done quite well," Trumka said in an email to the Washington Post.
Fox News is confirming a deal is close...
Multiple Congressional sources saying that there is a deal over USMCA with Mexico. I have multiple sources with stakeholders which USMCA will affect being told there is a deal and Canada approves. A Congressional source saying it will be finalized in next 24 hrs. #USMCA #Trade— Edward Lawrence (@EdwardLawrence) December 9, 2019
Of course, agreeing the NAFTA 2.0 deal would be a win for Trump but also for Democrats as they can claim that impeachment has not taken all the air out of the legislative room.
