Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, January 17, 2020

The Senate in a landslide vote Thursday passed a new trade deal with Mexico and Canada, giving President Trump his second high-profile trade win in as many days. The bill to revamp the Clinton-era North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) passed by a 89-10 vote, sending it to the president's desk for his signature.

It's appropriate this news is over-shadowed by impeachment given Trump's lies about no American casualties in Iraq after the Iran strike.

The lies about casualties from the Iran revenge attack have undermined America's faith in anything this President says about anything. He is a bald faced liar even about thinks as serious as American casualties, do we now know the full story? I sure don't feel like I do. If the trade deals work out well I will acknowledge it but no matter how well they work out it is not a license to break the law in regards to Ukrainian aid nor lie about American casualties. This man truly disgusts me. I don't think many of us are surprised that the casualties were revealed, most of us didn't believe the Liar in Chief when he claimed there were no casualties and, it seems, our suspicious were correct, as usual with this President.

When you know it's going to pass overwhelming and your vote isn't needed, count on some grandstanding by weasels like Chucky the Schemer.

"Sen. Chuck Schumer votes no on USMCA trade agreement because it doesn't address climate change"

You dolts are amazing, the "casualties" are soldiers going through concussion protocol which is not uncommon when, wait for it, the concussive effect of explosions occur in the vicinity of human beings and do not immediately manifest themselves.

TDS at its finest.

Back on topic, even the AFL-CIO is praising the passage of the USMCA, which has to be very disturbing to the Left.

Perhaps that is why both CraZed and Dummi desperately stampeded to deflect to the "casualties" from the Iran attack.

Reality check:

The Senate passed the U.S.-Mexico Canada Agreement on Thursday with overwhelming bipartisan support in an 89-10 vote. The deal is now headed to the White House, where President Donald Trump is expected to sign it.

Democratic lawmakers and the White House have both claimed victory for changes made to the major North American trade deal, which won approval from the House of Representatives last month after more than a year of deadlock.

For Democrats, the backing of labor unions was vital to their support of the deal, as was the securing of environmental protections and the removal of a provision that would have given the pharmaceutical industry more intellectual property protection.

Not sure where you're getting your "has to be very disturbing to the Left" from, especially considering there's no indication that the left is somehow very disturbed over it.

Talk to Bernie, Shumer, Gillibrand, Harris, Markey, Booker, Harris, Whitehouse, Reed, Schatz and anyone who writes for HuffMediaDailyAlterTalkingPoMattersKosNetPointsMemo, who are all desperate for bad news during the Trump Administration.

... The bill to revamp the Clinton-era North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) passed by a 89-10 vote, ...

I'm not surprised it passed. I am surprised it took this long.

The USMCA is not that different than NAFTA, the changes are mostly around the edges of NAFTA, so it should have been an easy passage.
