The Wall Street Journal: Mulvaney says Congress is likely to approve USMCA trade deal this year

WASHINGTON — The U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement has “a better than two-thirds chance” of passing through Congress this year, President Donald Trump’s acting chief of staff said Tuesday, adding its approval depends on support among House Democrats.

Speaking at The Wall Street Journal CFO Network meeting, Mick Mulvaney said the successor deal to the North American Free Trade Agreement has many supporters in the House, and a likely majority in the full chamber, but Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is unlikely to bring it to the floor without a clear majority of Democrats.

“I don’t think Nancy can bring it to the floor until she has something approaching the majority” in her own party, he said.
