Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) made the following statement after President Trump signed the United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA):
“Simply giving NAFTA a new name won’t give us any new results. Jobs will continue to move out of the country and overseas until trade agreements put workers in America first.
“The administration will try to sell this deal as a win for American workers. If President Trump is ready to bring stability to trade policy and to craft a deal that levels the playing field and brings jobs back to our country, I’ll work with him. But signing a document simply to say the President made a deal won’t help American workers and won’t keep jobs in the US.
“Just this week we have witnessed the real effect of unfair trade policies as GM shutters more plants and leaves over 6,200 hardworking men and women’s jobs hanging in the balance. Americans deserve policies that will improve job stability and fair trade and not just words, but real actions.”
