President Trump gave his lawfully required 30-day notice that he intends to submit the United States-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade deal to Congress for ratification. This action brought us one step closer to implementing a strong trilateral agreement that will significantly improve commerce between our countries. Mexico has already ratified the deal and Canada is well on its way to doing so. As the negotiation period expires today, I urge my Democratic colleagues not to stand in the way and let Congress finish the deal.
