USMCA: President Trump Announces NAFTA Replacement Promise Made, Kept – Stocks Soar, plus MH Market Updates

CNNmoney10.1.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThe Dow rose nearly 200 points today on news that began to leak out late last night that Canada and the U.S. had come to terms on a revision to the old – and much maligned – North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The Manufactured Housing Composite Value rose too. The promise of the replacement for NAFTA is a good deal for all, with benefits to American farmers, dairy, factories, businesses – and of course to the trading partners.  If it leads to more jobs and money in the U.S., which are among the promises, that would be good for manufactured housing. The USMCA will be our featured report this evening.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –



The White House press room provided MHProNews some pull quotes from various media outlets, in reaction to the newly announced USMCA – the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

U.S. Reaches Trade Deal with Canada and Mexico

Trade ministers from the U.S., Mexico and Canada have reached a deal to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Trump administration announced late Sunday night,” Politico reported, adding “The new pact, which is being called the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, is a major step toward completing one of Trump’s signature campaign promises.”

President Trump on Monday praised Canada for joining the U.S. and Mexico in a new trilateral trade agreement that will replace NAFTA,” Pete Kasperowicz reports in the Washington Examiner.Late last night, our deadline, we reached a wonderful new Trade Deal with Canada, to be added into the deal already reached with Mexico,” President Trump tweeted. The President also added that “the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA, is an ‘historic transaction!’”

The press conference for today’s announcement is posted below.


Per Fox Business: “The Trump administration reached a trade agreement with Canada over the weekend, paving the way for the president to sign a renegotiated agreement with both Canada and Mexico by November.”

The USMCA, which “President Trump referred to as “the most important” trade deal the administration has made so far, it marks the end of a tumultuous period between the three trade allies. The White House said USMCA will govern $1.2 trillion in trade, making it the largest trade deal in U.S. history.”

Trump touted the deal as “terrific” for all three countries, during a press conference at the White House on Monday, “with the most enhanced protections for workers ever developed.”

POTUS Trump also credited his tariff policies as a main reason the administration is able to reach deals.
