New US-Mexico-Canada deal most important trade pact ever: Trump

WASHINGTON, Oct 1, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – President Donald Trump on Monday
hailed the 11th-hour trade deal struck between the United States, Mexico and
Canada to replace the quarter-century old NAFTA accord, calling it the
biggest in US history.

“The agreement will govern nearly 1.2 trillion (dollars) in trade, which
makes it the biggest trade deal in the United States history,” Trump told a
news conference at the White House, saying he hoped to sign the new accord by
the end of November.

Known as the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal agreed
ahead of a midnight deadline Sunday will replace the North American Free
Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which Trump had denounced as a “disaster.”
