President Trump is Forging New Trade Agreements

Steps Taken to Revitalized American Industry and Promote Fair Trade

President Donald Trump has taken his first steps toward forging new trade agreements to revitalize American industry and agriculture. The President secured the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) to positively impact the lives of many within the U.S. The USMCA has helped create more jobs for American workers, grant access to fairer markets for farmers and dairy producers, and impose tough labor and environmental protections.

In addition, the President has sought to fight for fair and reciprocal trade by imposing $250 billion in Chinese goods to counter unfair trade practices. In addition, the President has called on Congress to pass the United States Reciprocal Trade Act, which would give him the authority to take strong action to pressure other countries to lower their trade barriers and open their markets to American goods. The President's Administration is also working to open new trade negotiations with the European Union, the United Kingdom, and Japan.
