Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Pete Stauber (MN-08) made the following statement upon the news of an official agreement on the United States-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) Agreement.

“Today’s announcement of an agreement is great news for our nation, and long overdue. While President Trump negotiated this critical trade deal over a year ago, Speaker Pelosi delayed the vote on the USMCA in pursuit of partisan impeachment. After months of relentless advocacy from House Republicans, I am relieved Speaker Pelosi finally did the right thing for the nation and agreed to move forward with the USMCA. This trade agreement will expand our markets, add close to $63 billion to the economy, and create 176,000 new jobs- with thousands of jobs coming to Minnesota. I have supported this trade agreement from day one and I applaud President Trump for delivering this win to Minnesota’s farmers, manufacturers, businesses, and families.”
