Oklahoma delegation hails Trump’s trade deal signing

A new trade agreement between three North American countries is officially law as President Donald J. Trump enacted the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Implementation Act with his signature at the White House.

The signing, which occurred last week, will put into action a trade deal that has been in the works since 2017 and passed the Senate floor by a vote of 89-10 just hours before the Senate impeachment trial began.

During the signing President Trump congratulated many Senators for their work on the trade deal, including Senator James Lankford (R-Okla.), as the president called the Oklahoma delegate, “an excellent person.”

The entire Oklahoma delegation voted in favor of the bipartisan bill that holds the potential to add 175,000 jobs, provide protections and assurance for workers and organized labor organizations and add as much as an estimated $68.2 billion to the overall U.S. GDP over the next several years according to the United States International Trade Commission.
