Amidst concerns Trump impeachment could derail the ratification of USMCA, and despite American analysts have given up hope on the vote of the new trade deal, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said House Democrats discussed the pact on Wednesday September 25th.
The U.S. House of Representatives is proceeding with work on a trade agreement with Mexico and Canada, U.S., House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday, allaying worries an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump would delay approval of the deal.
Pelosi, whose support is key to getting the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) passed into law, said House Democrats had discussed the pact on Wednesday, a day after she announced the inquiry into Trump.
“We’re moving ahead on the U.S-Mexico-Canada agreement,” Pelosi said at a news conference. “We’re, again, hoping to be on a continuing path to ‘yes’” to approve the deal aimed at replacing the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
