Trump hailed it as "one of the most important, and largest, Trade Deals in USA and World History" on Twitter shortly after the signing ceremony.
It remains unclear if President Trump can actually withdraw from NAFTA without congressional approval. "Without major improvements, this supposed overhaul will prove to be nothing more than a rebranded corporate handout". The president needs to talk to Congress on this and we can go back to the table with the Mexicans and the Canadians and do stronger labor.
Trump said on Saturday he would give formal notice of his intention to terminate NAFTA, giving six months for lawmakers to approve the new U.S. -Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Democrats will get control of the U.S. House of Representatives in January and some won't eagerly support a treaty President Donald Trump's representative Robert Lighthizer negotiated.
"I think we should see if we can get it passed first", Republican Senator John Barrasso said on NBC News' Meet the Press Sunday.
U.S. President Donald Trump, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto sign documents during the USMCA signing ceremony before the G20 leaders summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina November 30, 2018.

Iran says missile program is defensive amid heightened allegations, evidence
The deal's terms and the UNSC resolution endorsing it never included a ban on ballistic missile tests. Qasemi did not confirm or deny that Iran had carried out a new missile test.
Presumptive incoming Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi described the deal as a "work in progress" that lacks worker and environment protections.
U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue was pleased an agreement had been reached. The deal eliminates Canada's unfair Class 6 and Class 7 milk pricing schemes, opens additional access to U.S. dairy into Canada, and imposes new disciplines on Canada's supply management system.
He had made renegotiating NAFTA a key campaign promise. The USMCA requires at least 40 percent of auto production to come from factories with an average wage of 16 USA dollars per hour. But Trump said he's fine with that option too.
"In the United States the new trade pact will support high-paying manufacturing jobs and promote greater access for American exports across the range of sectors including our farming, manufacturing, and service industries", Trump said.
