Rep. Neal: ‘The Only Reason’ Trump’s Signing USMCA Is Because of What We Did as House Democrats

‘The only reason that the president is having this signing today is because of what we did as House Democrats’

EXCERPT:

NEAL: "Thanks, Madam Speaker. The only reason that the President is having a signing today is because of what we did as House Democrats. Just a reminder, you wrote about this for months. Rob Portman said this, a final agreement, would have been something Barack Obama would have negotiated. Senator Toomey complained that it was too Democratic and it had too many protections in there for labor rights. John Thune and said this was too Democratic. And today they're having a ceremony that if this original piece had been offered up to us, that the President submitted, it would never have made its way out of the Ways and Means Committee.”
