New NAFTA or Else ... What?

Listen & Download

Last month, the Trump administration announced completion of a U.S.-Canada-Mexico-Agreement, intended to supersede the 1993 North American Free Trade Agreement.  Can the new agreement be approved before the new Congress takes office in January?  Would a Democrat controlled House of Representatives endorse the new agreement?  If the new agreement is not approved by Congress, what can the president do on his own to force changes in NAFTA?  How will Washington trade disputes affect relations with Mexico and Canada?
