A new trade agreement with Canada and Mexico is headed to President Donald Trump’s desk after passing by a vote of 89-10 in the Senate on Thursday. Trump plans to sign the United States–Mexico-Canada (USMCA) deal, which he finalized last year to follow through on a campaign promise. The agreement aims to move more car production into the United States and reduce the incentive for U.S. companies to relocate factories to Mexico. Mexico has already approved the deal, and Canada is expected to do so in the coming months.
