USMCA gains outweigh the losses, director says

USMCA gains outweigh the losses, director says


CHARLES: MAYBE SHE IS. ED, WE APPRECIATE IT, YOU ALWAYS TEACH US A THING OR TWO. WHILE WE AWAIT SOME SORT OF OUT COME WITH THE UNITED STATES SITUATION, THE UNITED STATES HAS A HAS ANOTHER DEAL TO WORRY ABOUT. USMCA DEAL EVEN THOUGH MEXICO AND CANADA ARE IN AGREEMENT, WHAT IS HOLDING THIS UP? I WANT TO BRING IN FORMER COUPLE PERCENT DEPARTMENT DEPUTY DIRECTOR CHRIS GARCIA IN MEXICO CITY, WORKING ON THE TRADE ALLIANCE WITH MEXICO. ALWAYS GREAT TO GO TO THE SOURCE. MEXICO IS WONDERING WHAT IS HOLDING THIS UP?>>CHARLES, FIRST OF ALL, WE’RE ON THIS TRADE DELEGATION. GOOD AFTERNOON FROM MEXICO CITY, WITH THE AMERICAN COUNCIL OF YOUNG POLITICAL LEADERS, THE U.S.-MEXICO FOUNDATION. WE SENT A TRADE DELEGATION DOWN HERE TO FIND OUT WAYS TO STRENGTHEN THE U.S.-MEXICO ALLIANCE. WHAT WE FOUND FROM OUR DISCUSSIONS WITH BUSINESS LEADERS AND GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS IN MEXICO, BASICALLY THAT THERE IS A FEW ISSUES LIKE LABOR, ENVIRONMENT THAT ARE TRYING TO STILL BE WORKED OUT WITH THE U.S. CONGRESS. HOUSE DEMOCRATS ARE COMING DOWN ON THE TRADE DELEGATIONS BUT THE OVERWHELMING CONSENSUS, CHARLES, THERE IS MORE TO GAIN FROM THE PASSAGE OF USMCA THAN BY REOPENING THE TEXT. RIGHT NOW WE THINK THAT THE U.S. ECONOMY IS STRONG BUT WE SEE THAT MEXICO’S GDP GROWTH HAS SLOWED A LITTLE BIT. USMCA AND THAT RATIFICATION BY THE UNITED STATES IS REALLY GOING TO PROVIDE A BOOST FOR NOT JUST THE U.S. ECONOMY BUT ALSO THE MEXICAN ECONOMY. SO EVERYBODY WINS. NOW THEY THINK NOW IS THE TIME TO PASS IT. CHARLES: TO THAT POINT, WHEN YOU SAY EVERYONE WINS, THIS IS CHALK FULL OF THINGS THAT DEMOCRATS TRADITIONALLY WANT IN SUCH A BARGAIN, INCLUDING HIGHER PAY FOR UNION WORKERS. RICHARD TRUMKA IS GOING TO BE HEADING DOWN THAT WAY SOON. HE WILL MAKE SOME SORT OF ANNOUNCEMENT. DO YOU THINK THE DEMOCRATS ARE RISKING ALIENATING UNION WORKERS BY DRAGGING THIS ON? FARMERS WANT THIS PASSED AS WELL?>>YEAH. FARMERS WANT IT PASSED. I THINK UNION LEADERS COMING DOWN TO MEXICO IS A POSITIVE SIGN. MOST OF THESE OW STANDING ISSUES CAN BE WORKED OUT WITH SIDE LETTERS AND AGREEMENTS AFTER THE FACT. BUT REALLY WHAT WE’RE SEEING HERE, IT IS NOT JUST, THAT THE TRADE, AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND MEXICO AND CANADA WILL BRING US CLOSER TOGETHER, BUT REALLY THE PRESIDENT’S, THE PRESIDENT’S COMMITMENT TO STRENGTHENING THAT ALLIANCE WILL BRING US CLOSER TOGETHER. WE’VE SEEN SIGNIFICANT MOVEMENT FROM THE PRESIDENT TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE U.S. AMBASSADOR. WE HAD THE U.S. AMBASSADOR CONFIRM WHICH IS A GREAT SIGN. THE STATE OF U.S.-MEXICO RELATIONS IS VERY STRONG. IN FACT A LOT OF OUR COUNTERPARTS WE MET WITH WERE SURPRISED TO HEAR, BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH MISCONSTRUING, MISREPORTING WHATEVER IT MIGHT BE ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP AND PRESIDENT LOPEZ OBRADOR, BUT SURPRISED PRESIDENT WANTS MORE IMMIGRANTS FROM MEXICO AS LONG AS THEY’RE LEGAL, THEY’RE HARD-WORKING SMART, AMBITIOUS. THEY WANT TO ACHIEVE THE AMERICAN DREAM. THAT IS WHAT WE WANT TO SEE MORE OF. THERE IS MORE THAN WE GAIN BY GROWING ALLIANCE, GETTING CLOSER TO MEXICO. THAT WILL BE — CHARLES: WE HAVE JUST 30 SECONDS IF THEY SIGN THIS DEAL, DOES THIS ALSO HELP PRESIDENT TRUMP AND GIVE HIM MORE LEVERAGE WITH RESPECT TO THE NEGOTIATIONS WITH CHINA?>>YEAH. ABSOLUTELY. THERE IS ONE BIG OUTCOME THAT I SAW, ONE OF THE DELIVERABLES THAT I SAW, WE HAVE MANY INDIVIDUALS IN THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY IN MEXICO THAT PREFER, THE GOVERNMENT OF MEXICO PREFERS U.S. INVESTMENT IN MEXICO RATHER THAN CHINESE INVESTMENT. ONCE WE HAVE THE REGIONAL ALLIANCE BUILT OUT, WE’LL BE ABLE TO TACKLE CHINA WITH A MUCH STRONGER PLATFORM. REALLY THIS HAS BEEN A VERY POSITIVE TRIP. THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT FOR THE UNITED STATES AND MEXICO.

  1. Democrats are the enemy of the American people 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  2. Fox News: are you going to report about the Africans migrants at the south border fighting with the Mexican police and demands asylum and free passage to USA or are you going to ignore it like other main stream medias? It has been going on for a while. It’s in all independent international channels but I have not heard it from American channels.

  3. If The Republicans came up with this the Democrats won't go for it until , their in power and come up with it. Then the Republicans won't like it.

  4. Everything Trump does benefits Americans. Everything dems do benefits illegals.

  5. Now the next news network showed it today.

  6. The USMCA is the first step to challenging China on the world stage. Once the USMCA is signed, then the US will sign other counties onto a similar plan / joint agreements. Thus, shifting the decision making regarding manufacturing, technology, supply chain, and raw materials away from China, and ultimately excluding them out.

  7. We can solve 95% of America's problems by simply Deporting ALL Democrats!

  8. Justin Trudeau does not deserve to even be close to Donald Trump

  9. If we GET legal Mexicans, made them skilled, and fluent in English
    ROBOTICS ARE HERE, no MORE unskilled, illiterate
    FOREIGNERS

  10. LOL! That's so funny! Trump build a wall to prevent Mexican steal American jobs. Now they even don't across the wall!
    Now Americans in the celebration! LOL! Good! Good Bye, America! Hello, Next South Africa!

  11. USMCA means we loss control , it means we can NOT place tariffs , we lose our freedom and security

  12. The Democrats you mean are holding it up because it does something great for America and they're not going to get credit for it our great President Trump is and should I bet a Democrat would have never even thought about trading with anybody else they had a good deal with China obviously their children in our White House take all the best school seats and all the best overseas jobs you know like Joe Biden's son snort coke in the military then go to Ukraine and make millions bet that don't work for nobody else unless you work for Congress and you Senators aren't any better either

  13. Becourse of Climate Change the Hurricane Will be heavy an much heavy every Jear , cost a lot, solarpanels, windmills and Thorium/salt nuclear are much cheaper in Preventing Climate Disruption.

  14. If it's good for America, the Dems vote against it. Amazing.

  15. Nice to see an AmercanAsian fighting for his-MEXICan-brotherhood IN D US. I am sure he is rooting for MEXICAS in MEXICO as well, or he just works for US CORPS to get fast money in his pockets.

  16. Congress acts as thou they want to bankrupt America.

  17. But of course.

    I wouldn't expect anything less from a man that's putting America first before anything else.

    MAGA STRONG !!!

  18. Tell the ignorant what they wanna hear. That should be fox motto.

  19. TRUMP IS THE MOST ILLEGITIMATE PRESIDENT IN HISTORY!!! AN IDIOT!!!
    WOULDN'T KNOW HOW TO MAKE A GOOD DEAL IF IT LANDED IN HIS LAP…. GRASPING AT STRAWS 2020 TRUMP GOES TO PRISON!!!!!
    LMFAO.. TRUMPERS = SHIT= FOX=TRUMP = IDIOTS

  20. Another win. MAGA

  21. Recent polls show most Americans want Trump incarcerated

  22. ความเลว มีนับไม่ถ้วน ไอห่า ราชวงศ์จักรีมหาอุบาทว์

  23. Canada and US have a good alliance with our Military etc. However even I know our leader Trudope is not someone who Trump likes.

  24. Such a fine man from Mexico. Come on, Congress, it's a win win situation for both countries

  25. Our trade deal with Mexico will be the best thing for the US and Mexico. We need to separate ourselves from Chinese influence and instead promote strong North American growth.

  26. Republican Party, full of patriots that smear any vet that runs for office

    And praises a pornstar loving , draft dodger.

  27. “More to gain” … that is completely irrelevant. It doesn’t matter if passing it benefits anyone. It’s unconstitutional and must be rejected on that basis alone.

    If you want a trade deal, it cannot be one which violates our sovereignty.

  28. It makes no sense to even deal with China. They steal and never keep their word. Investing in Mexico helps Mexico and the USA. A job boom in Mexico would dramatically reduce the number of illegal border crossings as well.

  29. Migration is the root of evil.

  30. Come on Pelosi this should be number one issue that you and the House pass get it over to the Senate so President Trump can sign this into law

  31. If Trump likes it, it sucks!

  32. Except for the UN agenda 21/2030 stuff in it…

  33. this kid should run for office. He spoke for a good three minutes and said absolutely nothing.

  34. TRUMP 2020🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸TRUMP🇺🇸TRUMP🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  35. USMCA is D.O.A. just another glorified form of NAFTA- basically a name change to satisfy queen trump. Your full of crap that queen trump wants more immigrants- the only exception is for her properties

  36. Corrupt democrats doesn't care about our country,they want to turn our country into a third world country.

  37. Democrats hold up everything thats good for America. Pure and simple, Democrats Suck!

  38. if its good for america the dims wont pass it.. period

  39. And that idiot Justine just sent 2.6 5 billion to fight climate change in third world countries. We the people didnt agree to this

  40. A crime that Congress holds up anything that will not only benefit Americans but if it makes Trump a winner, the Democrats close their eyes and play dumb..oh wait, they are already dumb!!!!!

  41. LOL at trump rebranding nafta and calling it a good deal. trump supporters might be the stupidest fuckin people on the planet

  42. Bloviating Blowhard wants the votes of the party he can’t stop demonizing & dehumanizing for his Cult of Hatriots to target 🎯

  43. Don the Con only tears up treaties & uses the Constitution for toilet paper 🧻

  44. The US economy is strong.. BUT IT SLOWED A BIT… Don't you love it..

  45. Do the Democrats still represent the unions? And if so do they represent the blue collar jobs or the white collar jobs in America? And the answer is. White collar jobs. Weird but true.

  46. Mexico City looking nice

  47. Nancy Pelosi is holding it up. She is the enemy of economic progress.

  48. 2:37 "they want to achieve the American dream" this means assimilating. I know of people who have lived in the country illegally for over 60 years and still do not speak English. Hispanics naturally born in the US refers to themselves as "Mexican" and not "American". The reality is, 78% enter illegally versus legally.
    60 years ago, China was dirt poor. Now, they're the 2nd largest economy in the world. They kept education as a priority, which has never been a priority in Latin countries. China had a 1 Child policy. With the combined Quinceanera and Machismo mentality, it's highly unlikely they will ever implement a similar policy in Mexico or any other Latin country. Speaking of priorities, the Mexican government has had a Space Program for the last 10 years. A program for their people??? Nothing.

  49. Canadians are becoming richer through American economy while Americans living through weekly paychecks.

  50. So like Japan then Canada-Mexico takes USA corn with e-commerce.

  51. Shame on our Congress.

  52. Vote out the Congressional Democrats.

  53. The Dems are free loading off ppl! They are all about themselves! They get rich you stay poor…

  54. 500 million people in USMCA. What a great deal.

  55. What a Win-Win situation! Go for it!

  56. Yeah take out people back we don’t want these illegals here in America take all your Mexico illegals back to your country we don’t want them here they will be sent back soon anyway stolen documents they all stole the documents so security is not real drivers license is not real

  57. Dems are gonna repeat there stubborness by holding every bill hostage .trying to negotiate non related subjects .
    They are dragging there feet till after debate.

  58. Reading through several responses it is apparent that many people don't appreciate what "abrupt" change does to any complex system: One does not abandon a trading partner instantly; if one wants to alter a situation it has to done over a period of years. Hundreds of thousands of people's JOBS are connected with trade to China – regardless of what you approve of – all manner of transport (ships, trains, trucks); retail sales jobs; as well as middlemen who make things work.
    You want to stop trade with China (it's ill-conceived) but at least do it in an organized way so you do the least damage to the overall economy…. and while you're at it consider the contradiction to free market concepts that have been the cornerstone of conservatives for decades.

  59. One more comment: Are any of you familiar with how the United States lost much of the textile industry? It could be an educational thing for many to appreciate how that change occurred… several decades ago. Stop thinking that the ten second sound bytes of info we receive from ALL sources actually convey the depth of a subject

  60. I wish I could site my source, regardless it wasn't the Leftist media. Their source were Mexican journalists. There is a real difference between Mexican journalists, and US 'journalists'. The main preoccupation of US 'journalists' is fabricating lies about TRUMP, whereas, Mexican journalist who report on crime, and corruption in Mexico are subject to assignation everyday. The reality is virtually the entire Mexican economy is controlled by the drug cartels. Mexico's two largest 'industries' is oil, and drugs, and I also have to add illegal immigration. The two largest are controlled by the cartels as well as illegal immigration. Yes, I know there is always the 1 in 10 million exception, regardless to quote the Mexican journalist 'no illegals cross the border without payment to the coyotes who pay the cartels. Whatever you subsidize the more you get. Thank GOD for TRUMP..

  61. READ THE ENTIRE USMCA TO SEE FIR YOURSELF WHY THE USMCA IS NITHING MORE THAN CAPITULSTION TO GIVING UP US SOVERIGNTYVAND ADOPTING TREATYS THAT PUT THE US LAST, NOT FIRST.
    READ THE WHOLE THING ESPECIALLY THE LAST PARTS.
    THUS IS NIT GOOD FOR AMERICA UNLESS YORU WANT TO JOIN THE NEW WORLD ORDER.

  62. real news thank u

  63. EE.UU and MEXICO

  66. Funny…Canada and Mexico are saying the exact same thing. I wonder which one of three is lying? Lol

  67. Same OS, said same thing when pass nafta in 5 years 20,000 empty empty buildings with all them business saying closing and moving to mexico with its workers, I was at 4 of them back then, we are moving our factory to Mexico, wages are lower.

    Why do I see this being the 2nd gutting of usa. lets see that generation is mostly unable to rise up and 2 generations later there so indoctrinate with books that they fight for any other nation then hear the truth
    less they had strong familys that taught them about Treason of Nafta with indept understanding.

  68. Junk deal. The old deal is better

  69. This muppet is too smiley.
    Get a new one to sell us the replacement migration agenda.

  70. Trump is a pro at bankrupting companies, now he's endangering millions of peoples jobs and budgets with his tariffs. And if you think this will create jobs here in America, you're a naive fool. Farmers are being hurt, prices are going up. The American poor and middle class will be hurt. People who support Trump and believe his bs are clueless.

  71. 3 years and Trump Has Done Nothing to the Criminal Pedophile Traitors 
    More Talk
    More MSM sedition 
    More BS
    the Traitors are Free 
    This Patriot is Over Trump

  72. The only thing really holding this up is hatred for Trump…never mind the good for the country this deal will bring

  73. America don't make deals with transsexuals lunatics like Trudeau .

  74. Forget China, give all our business to Mexico and South America.

  75. Nothing more than NAFTA 2.0 changed to NAFTA 2.1.
