Congressmen Praise House Passage
HISTORIC TREATY: Duncan Praises Passage of USMCA.
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jeff Duncan praised the passage of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) in the House of Representatives:
“President Trump has secured yet another historic victory for the United States of America. The USMCA will bring our trade policies with Canada and Mexico into the 21st century and implement provisions that put our nation and our workers first. This modernized and generational trade deal will further propel the nation’s economic success we are currently experiencing under the Trump Administration. It’s sad that we waited over a year for this deal to come to fruition as Speaker Pelosi held it hostage to try and disguise the unpopularity of her party’s impeachment sham. The American people see right through it. They know President Trump is the one who secured this win – another promise made and a promise kept!”

Cunningham Applauds House Passage of USMCA
Washington, D.C. – In response to House passage of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), Rep. Joe Cunningham released the following statement:
“After months of working with the White House and members of both parties here in Congress, I am proud that the House voted today to pass USMCA. A strong trade relationships with our closest neighbors is absolutely necessary to maintaining good-paying jobs and a robust economy in the Lowcountry. This is an example of what Congress can do when we come together for the people we serve. I’ll continue to work hard with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to achieve results for the Lowcountry.”
Earlier today, Cunningham spoke on the House floor, calling attention to Lowcountry manufacturers and businesses like Bosch, JW Aluminum, and Becton Dickinson that would benefit from the trade certainty and market stability that finalizing USMCA will bring.
Cunningham previously urged House leadership to ensure a vote on USMCA before the end of the year. Yesterday, he joined six other freshman members in calling for the Senate to pass USMCA before they leave Washington for the holidays.
