May 17, 2019
Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi released this statement after the Trump Administration announced Canada, Mexico and the United States had reached an agreement to lift the U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs and the retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods:
“It is encouraging to see this agreement with Canada and Mexico. It is my hope that the Trump Administration will work with the rest of our allies to refocus on standing up to China’s trade cheating – instead of recklessly antagonizing our allies and inviting retaliation on American workers and goods.
“House Democrats will continue to work with the USTR to address our priorities of ensuring the USMCA proposal meets our standards for jobs and wages, prescription drug prices, environmental protections and the central issue of strong enforcement.”
