I mean the labor movement mosque rope and this means that the resources have to be a allocated had to be invested in in organizing and then the euro very high to be a massive campaigns. That are coordinated. I'm on different. Unions are done by industries because one of the weaknesses of the american labor movement has to do with the fact that it's not organized industry like erasing many other advance. You know a capitalist countries across the atlantic in europe and in other countries so the question of organizing by industry sees on a require a new architecture if for the american labor movement undecided racial has to leave in terms of that and in terms of political action. You know there. Same need to develop a new strategy. That's far more independent a from a from the democratic party. I mean it's important to realize that there are elements seem that democratic party that are supported by corporate donors. It and really don't have a very you know. Seem commitment to empower workers. Working on the other hand there are people within the democratic party who see themselves are working class advocates who fight you know for the rights of workers and will power you know four and by workers and so this will be one of the challenges that the new team that takes over the reigning. The labor federation is going to have to wrestle with not to mention. You know the challenge of trade undeveloped in. We're dealing with globalized at work. There is a need to develop our alliances across borders and immediately you know the question of building strong alliances with an avian workers of north with the mexican workers down. South is to deal with the five thousand dollars when we continue to witness a runaway capital Which impacts our jobs in this country but the question is how do we develop a strategy that racist estander of leaving for work towards a ima gallon for workers.

And so that requires an alternative economic development trade strategy and those are the challenges ahead for the new team emerging at the helm of labor federal before we go arlene holt baker. I wanted to ask you about the proactive. That's protecting the right to organize act which did pass the house. Which sits in. I mean the democrats do control. The senate still sits in the senate since march. Richard trumka was a major advocate of this act. Can you talk about its importance. It is critically important is is so important because workers want to organize this. No question about that. They want to have a voice at wor and the pro act will make it possible for workers to do so without being intimidated harassed fired and the company would would be penalized for that. So the proactive critically important. Now we have to have workers be able to freely have a voice on their job. If they aren't able to do this they will not be able to reach the economic conditions that they so need in order to survive power. Yes it comes from the ground up from workers but unless they have that voice on the job free of intimidation harassment and free of having a captive audience meetings held by their employers. They will not be able to fully see the potential of their work. So the proactive is critically important. As i indicated earlier that was one of the last things. I heard rich talking about the next voting rights and voter suppression and the pro act together because we must empower workers voices on the job. We must continue to empower the voter in this country so that we can be sure that our democracy holes strong so the pro act is critical to us and i would say to the senators. All of the senators were listening. It's not enough for you to just talk about and give accolades to richard trumka. If you really want if you really want to show how much you truly care about.

"And empowering our communities. Let's go to a bit of that speech that you're describing are lane. The speech richard trumka gave in washington. Dc in july and we cannot afford to rent any water agenda from democracy near the workplace democracy at the ballot. Blondes to investment in our people fall victim to procedural tools concede segregation. It's become clearer. The one of two things much pushed aside the filibuster for the hopes and aspirations of the american people that speech. Richard trumka gave in july arlene. Hope baker talk about your rise with him in two thousand nine. We played in the introduction here that speech that he gave addressing the labor movement and addressing the issue of racism within the labor movement as he was Campaigning for barack obama to become the first african american president of the united states. Then you became the first african american executive within the afl becoming the executive vice president For the federation. Talk about that time i have to reflect back amy to nine hundred ninety five. When on the new voice team of john sweeny linda chevette thompson. The first woman a latina woman to be elected and rich trunk or check secretary treasurer of the afl ran on the ticket in one thousand nine hundred ninety five talking about inclusion and versity and a new voice for workers around this country understanding the importance of diversity in the labor movement. I was very honored because in two thousand seven. I was appointed by john sweeney to serve out. Linda chevet thompsons term when she decided to step down from her position. And i served in that position but it was in two thousand and nine through twenty thirteen. That i served alongside rich trumka as his executive vice president and during that period of time history was also made because we know so many things were happening in the country particularly the election of barack obama. We were pushing for that but trunka understood that you could not be silent. You could not be silent when it came to race and his boldness when he stepped out and he spoke to a convention in two thousand eight and put it all on the line. That says that if you are not willing to vote for this man who certainly is supportive workers rights and everything we believe in it is only can be chalked up to racism the boldness the willingness to speak truth to power no matter where it was and to speak truth to our unions. The other piece of this. I think that's important. Is that rich. Understood that the diversity of the labor movement the labor movement had to be reflected and must be reflected of our membership and that's women and young people and people of color so on that team also was list schuler the first secretary treasurer of the afl A young woman so the which trump could team was a team representative of the future of labor movement. If we were going to continue to grow and be empowered but most importantly to empower working working people. It was a wonderful exciting time and it was wonderful to be on the side and standing with rich trumka as we continue to forge a pad that included diversity inclusion. And my god organizing. I wanna bring. Jose luis into this conversation veteran. Labor organizer campaigner educator. He's been a worker's rights activists for half a century and the mainland united states and puerto. Rico and through the western hemisphere jose luis. Can you describe your response when you heard. The news of rich trumka's is sudden death yesterday. And can you talk about his legacy in be Thank you for having me amy. First of all might deepest condolences to a his wife barbara and his son richard the night. He saw grandchildren a they. This has been a significant loss for american workers. No doubt a and. I think it's important to take a moment to understand a who was in fact you richard trunk a trade unions You know he came out of their mind workers he was a reformer In the mind workers is a union that have been led by john lewis. You know the founder of the role that organized the mass industries in america it was also the union that that becaming festive with corruption. Tony boyle who ordered the execution jock guy jablonski and You know the emergence of iran. Confide goalposts known as the miners for democracy. It trumka came out of the A reformed tradition the militant reform tradition of their mind workers. Which is the reason why he led you know that strike. Oh theod against the beach on coal mining company in and so when he wants elected as part of this late. The venue voice slate side. My friend and sister lean was talking about in one thousand nine hundred ninety five in those who is here. Sales as Reformers militant reformers Ee india trade union movement had a lot of hope for these four lucien that came together around john. Sweeney richard trumka and linda chavez thompson in terms of dealing with this fundamental challenge that the american labor movement has a embarrassed how bill powerful waters out will political power real economic power. Heidel become a a very strong force for a profound transformation each society and so it trumka washing fact a reformer on a visionary and industry sense. You know this is a great loss but much has been left on dawn. And now you know he's legacy must be a leave talk by a whoever emerges assad they leader or the new team of leaders of the only labor federation in this country to deal with this challenge of huddle beal who were for workers when in fact what we have witnessing the past few that gates is a massive distribution of wealth from the bottom to the talk workers losing our political power a power in society and so this remains said fundamental challenge for whoever is going to you know take up the mantle and troy to live up to.

"By rise today with some sad some horrible news about the passing of a great friend. Rich trumka who left us this morning. The working people of america have lost a fierce warrior at a time when we needed him most just yesterday. Rich was lending his support to the striking miners in alabama following. In his father's footsteps. He worked in the mines. He went to penn state earned his law degree in practiced in go to some fancy place went right to work for the united mine workers which he led for so many years and then he became head for secretary treasurer and afl cio. He had in his veins in every atom of his body. The heart the thoughts the needs of the working people of america. The reverend william barber of the poor people's campaign pay tribute to richard trumka by saying quote. We've lost a dear friend and brother in the struggle. For justice he never separated the fight for economic and labor rights from the fight for voting rights and civil rights. He knew they are simultaneous fights. Barber said richard trumka was third generation coalminer from pennsylvania. At the age of thirty three. He became the youngest president of the united mine workers of america where he helped organize strikes against peabody coal and the piston coal company. He also led union efforts to oppose participate in south africa and back to boycott of royal dutch shell which had been called by the national union of mineworkers in south africa. Richard trumka would go on to serve as secretary treasurer of the afl cio in july. Two thousand eight. He made headlines when he denounced racism within organized labor and called on all workers to vote for barack obama. There's of single good reason for any worker especially any union member to vote against barack obama. Oh and there's only wine really really bad reason. Brock bomb nasty not white. In two thousand. Nine richard trumka was elected president of the afl cio. After the retirement of john sweeny this is trump is speaking in two thousand eighteen. After the supreme court issued a major anti-union ruling eviscerating the power of public sector unions in the case janice versus asmi. All over our country right now. Workers are organizing and they're striking guys. We haven't seen in years. Fifteen thousand workers in april in one week joined the union and that's on top of the two hundred sixty two thousand new members who joined our ranked flash year and the optimistic to be even more optimistic. Seventy five percent of them were under the age of thirty five are turns coming and despite the fact that too many of our labor laws have been written to undermine the freedom to organize now new research from mit shows a fifty percent increase in the number of nine union workers. Who would vote to join a union tomorrow. If given the opportunity tens of millions of workers are ready to experience the transformational power of collective bargaining and in many cases. All that stands in the way is a rig system. Let me be clear. The supreme court is on the wrong side of history. What they did flies in the face of where america's headed where workers wanna go and where workers need to go and it shows exactly how out of touch they are with the real america. That's out there. Janice or no. Janice workers are demanding. Voice were standing up. Were speaking out for a better life or demanding. A fair share of the wealth that we help create. We're marching and we're organizing and we're bargaining and we simply will not allow a corporate controlled supreme court to stop us from doing our job. Cio president richard trumka. Speaking in two thousand eighteen he died thursday at the age of seventy two to talk more about the life and legacy. We're joined by two guests. Arlene holt baker served as executive vice president for the afl cio from two thousand nine. Two thousand thirteen. She was the first african american to ever serve as an executive officer in the afl cio. History we're also joined by. Jose luis a veteran labor. Organizer campaigner an educator. He's been worker's rights activists for decades. We welcome you both democracy now. Arlene holt baker. You work side by side with. We're true trump got for years. Can you talk first about the reaction to his death and what you feel. It's important for people to understand about richer trump legacy. Well good morning amy. I am happy to be here to talk about my brother. Richard trumka so happy doll. So be here with my brother. Salem news the reaction and it as been devastating for us. I think you heard it in the motion of senator schumer's voice we were. We were broken by the news. But if you knew anything about rich trumka could only bring a smile to your face. Because he's the brother in our movement who fought in so many ways but what is right my own reflection is i see you know you start to think about the last time you saw spoke to him and i thought about the last time actually saw rich and it was on facebook and because he was doing a speech at the afl cio where he had welcomed the texas delegation to come and he stood with them as he talked about the right to vote and he talked about the john lewis voting rights act and for the act and then he connected all of that to the pro act with the right for workers to organize and rich truly believed as all of us in the labor movement. Believe that you can't have the denial of voting rights and suppressed the votes of anyone and not have a strong labor union without destroying your democracy rich understood that democracy was on the line. So i thought you know rich. The last time. I heard him. He was giving the same message that i've heard him give so many years was about empowering workers and empowering our communities. Let's go to a bit of that speech that you're describing are lane. The speech richard trumka gave in washington..

More than six million dollars to outside political groups which mainly supported democrats and almost nine million dollars for years earlier. They're good for about five million dollars a year on lobbying to boost workers protections and defend their rights already in place but money and power are not always the same thing. Sure trump cook controlled a ton of union cash to give the politicians or to use against them but his credibility came from his narrative as a third generation. Minor who legitimately spoke for working class americans from his famously moustachioed mouth. The afl cio will continue to be a dominant force in american politics. Especially on the left. But there's no guarantee that the person moves into trumka's prime office will carry the same heft. He did at least not at first.

"Richard trumka has died few could match his clout in labor politics by philip elliott from his seventh floor office. Richard trumka could look out the window and down at the white house just across lafayette park. The afl cio. Chief often made the quick walk across the manicured square and up to the iron security gate on pennsylvania avenue. Most of the secret service officers. They are knew him and trumka certainly knew his way past them and up the driveway to the west wing. Trumka won't be making those walks any longer. The longtime fixture in union politics died thursday from an apparent heart attack. He was seventy two when it came to organize labor and its political heft. Few could question. Trump has appetite for a fight or his ability to deliver for his more than twelve million members spread across fifty distinct unions regardless of which party happens to hold the oval office after all. He showed no reluctance to tell the president. He was wrong whether it was a fellow democrat or donald trump and a sign of the cloud trumka wielded and the respect. He earned president. Joe biden senate majority leader chuck schumer and house speaker. Nancy pelosi each gave tributes to the labor legend whose death shocked washington. A third generation coal miner who wore his western. Pennsylvania routes proudly trumka was a crucial sounding board for presidents from both parties on trade deals labor disputes and worker safety. But he never fell for the trappings of washington and a city that treats office prestige as a proxy for power he often invited rank and file workers and journalists to his son filled office as though it were just another break. Room and mining town trumka rose to the top job at the afl cio in two thousand nine. Just as barack obama was coming to power but he had been the unions number two leader dating to nineteen ninety five when bill clinton was in his second term before that trump lead the united mine workers starting in nineteen eighty two. When ronald reagan was just getting his sea legs in washington for every major labor victory and loss for the last forty years. Trumka was probably at the table and offering some of the loudest protests against any limits on unions rights when necessary trump could could be brutally effective at managing his members and politicians alike. He knew a lot of his members voted for trump and thus couldn't stiff arm that white house but he also knew a lot of them liked biden and that biden was ready to give them what they wanted. It's why trumka was seen as such a good advocate for the upcoming infrastructure pills. That would put a lot of union members to work building roads bridges and tunnels now democrats will have to find other surrogates view. Have the credibility and power that trumka enjoyed inside labors. sometimes messy family. Trumka was one of the voices that could unify in two thousand eight. Trumka put his reputation on the line and confronted united steel worker members at their national convention in las vegas. Some were reluctant to.

"You into law. Enforcement will be honest as a youth. I Attempted to stay away from from law enforcement a lot and then I was working at a nuclear facility. That was on the edge of shutting down. Had seen a lot of things in law enforcement in our country that i just didn't agree with Personally and particularly Was motivated after. I saw the death of eric garner hands of new york city police to do something about it myself and you know. I was raised with values to not. Let's not talk about it. Let's do something about it. And so i chose to do something about it and filled out all the paperwork and put in the application and went to the academy and became a police officer to police. The way i. I am vision. Policing should be done in our country and did that for You know five or six years and came back to the labor movement With an opportunity here the legislative office but still workers in washington so given that you already had professional working experience that you were already sort of had these union values these kind of get it done values that that you just talked about when you were in law enforcement even now to you see problems with the way that police unions deal with issues of police. Brutality i would say I see problems with the way. Some police unions deal with over use of force and the way they communicate with the public. It's very localized Police unions a lot of people don't don't realize that All of the there's thirteen affiliates in the that represent police officers along with the service employees international union. And the teamsters and that kind of made up our coalition. But there's also individual bargaining units within policing that are under umbrellas of other organizations. And so it's not a national network and so part of what we've tried to do to bring folks together to the table to really talk about some of these tough issues that we're dealing with and make sure that one the profession is upheld that the people who are doing the job directly every day a recognized and to the folks who maybe should not be doing the job at all or held accountable and we go forward to make our country a little better all right john paul top to me about what. The blueprint for change is so Last summer after the After we saw the outcry from the deaths around. Taylor george floyd the nfl cio president. Richard trumka formed a racial justice task force and that task force divided the work into a few subcommittees and one of those on police and we noticed while we were doing this work and i should have mentioned that the lead staff that committee and we noticed we were doing this work. That one of the voices from the table was missing. And that was of unionized. Police officers the people on the frontlines. Doing this work every day. We hear from mayors we hear from police chiefs. We'll hear from lots of folks here from community activists we hear from the media but we were hearing from the people doing the work. And so we kind of put this network together till let unionized. Police officers have a voice and drive for reforms. Not excuses so i i appreciate that you know. I have spent a fair number of years doing various kinds of journalism and media. And i've consistently wanted to talk with officers who are currently working and i never able to i. I can talk with former officers But current law enforcement are typically barred or band or simply. Highly reluctant to speak with media. Is that a union problem. I don't even know that it's it's a union problem. I think it's just a culture of our country but we're trying to change one of the things we're trying to do is change. We had When our blueprint came out. Cnn actually did an article on the blueprint and current law enforcement. As part of our group spoke to them And i'm happy to connect you with some of these folks to can is our way that unions themselves in the collective bargaining work that they do actually work in ways to create more accountability For police greater trust in communities we think so so part of our blueprint for change. A program called the union law enforcement accountability and duty standards. Are you leads. Because everyone loves a good acronym and Part of the program Is cure accountability. And we have a roadmap for this and other industries But wanna bring that culture change to law enforcement and so part of bargaining as you bargain with employers to get time to do the training for this stuff so that we can institute this program amongst our members so that culture that you talk about is is often held up as one of the biggest challenges in the case of of the murder of george floyd undoubtedly it felt so there was a culture there that kind of then blue line culture. That culture of silence cannot really be changed through union action. Well that's our goal and so i don't think it's just a a police union culture or union culture. I think you know in my opinion My last experience. It's been an american culture right that no one. No one wants to be seen as the rat or the snitch But we realize through the labor movement and and unionized police officers that we only have two options we either change our culture watch bargaining rights get legislated away state by state and municipality by municipality i think many of us are still shaken and so moved by what we saw from the testimony of the capitol police officers And yet some have also been critical saying that. The unions haven't supported those police officers or or those law enforcement officers in the way that we've seen for example in some other cases. Where are the unions on. What has happened with those capitol. Police what i want to say that I watched the testimony and Those were four. true american. heroes Defended our democracy on january sixth and want to give them the respect that it's owed to them secondly those two departments I can't speak for those unions. They're not afl cio affiliated. Either the capitol police or the dc metro police unions i. I can only speak for the work. That we're doing within the afl cio and our union to kind of hold his profession up. While also holding back actors accountable..

Cases of Flu Are Down Globally

"Job. Maybe next time you're here you can present. That would be getting green jobs. So i'm just asking when that happened. Richard trumka who is a friend longtime friend of joe biden says about that day one eastone. He says i wish he. The president has paired that. Were carefully with the thing that he did. second by saying. Here's where we are creating jobs. So there's partial evidence from richard trumka. Well you didn't include all of his interview. Would you like to include. How about this. The international union of north america said the keystone decision will cost one thousand existing union jobs and ten thousand projected construction jobs. Well what mr trump. Also indicated in the same interview was that president biden has proposed a climate plan with transformative investments and infrastructure and laid out a plan that will not only create millions of good union jobs but also helped tackle the climate crisis. That guy was peter doocy from fox news and i always hate his questions because he takes four ever to get to the point he just beats around the bush because his conscience is fighting him the whole time and at least that's what it seems like. It's like that tiny little part of them that still has morals and ethics is trying to tell him. He's being deceiving and a bad journalist. But pete here just wants at fox news money one of the more unexpected biden policies. I would say. Just because. I never thought he would actually do. It is that he announced on friday. That trump wouldn't be eligible to receive intelligence briefings anymore. This is the first time that a former president has been cut out of these briefings. But we've never truly had a president trump have we biden explained in that norah o'donnell interview saying quote. I just think that there's no need for him. To have the intelligence briefings. What value is giving him. An intelligence briefing. What impact does he have at all other than the fact that he might slip and say something and he also said that has shown quote erratic behavior. Well that certainly the polite way to say that. He's been acting crazy honestly if he didn't read them well he was president. Why should he get them now. I mean the way. I imagine it. They practically had to create puppet shows and plays to get him the information that was in those briefings like they probably had to act it out for him. The man doesn't or possibly can't read so the story here as promised is about the flus really bad year sir remember. I talked a couple weeks ago. About how bad well not. How bad how good for us it was that. This year's flu season is almost nonexistent. In that was in new york city as it turns out that sort of the case. Globally this reporting from the atlantic followed a doctor from the mayo clinic in rochester minnesota. And they just sort of talked it over with them. What they're seeing in. Why we might be seeing this really good flu season for us. He said on december first that they began testing all patients with respiratory symptoms for covert and the flu so thousands and thousands of these tests have turned up positive for covid but out of the twenty thousand flu tests that they've run which is ten times. The usual number zero have come back positive for the flu since early fall. Eight hundred thousand flu tests in the. Us have been done and only fifteen hundred have been positive. That's point two percent for context. That's about one hundred times so last year. We had a hundred times more cases at this time when we had done. Eight hundred thousand tests back then. The flu positivity rate was anywhere between twenty and thirty percent twenty and thirty percent a lot of other respiratory viruses have disappeared as well well disappeared in quotes because they're still out there somewhere including ones for the common cold. Obviously the reason for this is the number of restrictions and precautions that we've had to put in place social distancing masks etc and all of those help because the regular flu and covid spread in pretty much the same ways however covert spreads more easily because it can be passed on by people who don't even have symptoms in front example just look at all these super spreader events. That didn't happen before. It's not like if you went to the movie theater and just anyone had the flu. You al- suddenly got the flu. There are also differences at the macroscopic level. Like how it sticks to the particles that we exhale when we breathe or talk like cova sticks more easily so is easier to transmit of course doctors

Trump Aides and Democrats Agree on Trade Pact With Mexico and Canada

"Let's start in DC house. Democrats announced on Tuesday that they had reached a deal with the trump administration on a new North American trade agreement. The United States Mexico Canada Agreement or US MCA replaces. The artist formerly known as the North American Free Trade Agreement or NAFTA and Gideon. The the timing of the announcement couldn't be more interesting. Yes so the weird thing about the politics of what was happening in DC on Tuesday is that this gets announced Coinciding siding with the introduction of articles of impeachment against President Trump so obviously it gave the administration and Republicans the opportunity to tout a success rate before an election election year. This was something that trump had wanted to do for a long time and left some Democrats confused as to why members of Congress would let this happen as it did. Yeah and and the timing does sort of encapsulate. This ongoing theme that the Democrats have been talking about the argument goes that they can legislate and investigate at the same time. Here's part of what House Speaker Kerr. Nancy Pelosi had to say to reporters wonder how you can say that president trump is an existential threat to democracy in one hand but also worked so closely the visit ministration. You get something like this is such a power to them as well say that we came a long way from what he originally proposed what he originally proposed proposed and there are some people who said why make it look like he has eventually well. We've we've we're declaring victory for the American worker. What is in this agreement but but we would never not any one of us is important enough for us to hold up a trade agreement that is important for American workers right so as Nancy was saying there? The deal has a number of concessions from the White House in the new trade agreement. Like what Gideon like what. Well the Democrats said that they were able to get an agreement to remove a particular rule that was set on pharmaceuticals originally certain drugs. We're going to be protected from generic competition for up to ten years. which would have impacted the cost of prescription drugs? Ah basically the way that it works. It's sort of like if there is no competition for these drugs and pharmaceutical companies can sell them for whatever cost that got removed moved Democrats so that they added more enforcement to make sure that Mexico is following through on this new rule to make it easier for workers to unionize and then some other environmental protections to okay okay and even though the whole day in DC was shall we say peculiar. It kind of seemed like Democrats moved on this when they did because they got the go-ahead from big labor unions. Yeah I think that was sort of the writing on the wall the AFL CIO the country's largest labor federation they signed off endorsed the deal AFL CIO president. Richard Trumka tweeted on Tuesday quote. Make no mistake. We demanded a trade deal that benefits workers and fought every single day to negotiate that deal and now we have secured an agreement that working people can probably support the Democrats were happy. Trump was happy. Unions were happy. Are they all going to join hands and sing We are the world now

U.S., Canada and Mexico sign agreement - again

"You house Democrats are eager to show progress on something other than the impeachment inquiry just an hour after unveiling the formal charges against the president house speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a deal he said Democrats had reached an agreement with the White House on an updated trade pact with Mexico and Canada this is the day we've all been working to and working for on the path to yes that yes on a new nafta marks a rare moment of bipartisanship in a deeply divided capital as NPR's Scott Horsley reports for the trump administration getting Mexico and Canada to sign a new trade deal was hard enough winning support from house Democrats may have been even tougher house speaker Pelosi says her party went along only after the new nafta was modified to include enforceable protections for workers and the environment there's no question of course at this table image is much better than nafta it is infinitely better than what was initially of proposed by the administration Democrats also insisted on stripping out of the trade deal certain patent protections which they called a giveaway to big pharmaceutical companies house ways means committee chairman Richard Neal says there were a lot of hard fought negotiations with the White House I think we set a world record for hanging up on each other myself in the trade rep but at the same time we also knew that this was an opportunity that we couldn't let get away from us Neil says the talks came to a head this past weekend the Massachusetts lawmaker was watching the New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady when he was interrupted by a phone call all of a sudden I looked at my phone and said hello see for caller ID long wisdom tells me hello Brady take the call as final details were ironed out Neil was also in regular contact with AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka who checked in from a hunting trip Trumka endorsed the agreement after promise of factory inspections if necessary to verify compliance in Mexico his union backing is an important green light for congressman Neal and his fellow Democrats but this is more than a triumph for organized labor it's a triumph for workers everywhere across America it's also the first major trade agreement for the president who spent much of the last three years disrupting international trade at a signing ceremony in Mexico City this afternoon US trade representative Robert light Heiser hailed the agreement as a win for all three countries and if something is going to base North America Richard is going to make America rich rich could make Canada richer and it's going to make Mexico richer the new agreement which trump calls the U. S. M. C. A. provides important updates for things like digital commerce that barely existed when after the fact a quarter century ago it also requires car companies use more north American parts if they want to sell cars here duty free and includes a sixteen dollar an hour minimum wage for some auto production that could shift some manufacturing from Mexico to the US and Canada on the whole though the U. S. M. C. A. is more of an update to nafta than a wholesale replacement it's estimated increase GDP by only about one third of one percent Christian G. check of the center for automotive research has what the deal does do is avoid the hit to the economy that would have happened to trump made good on his threat to scrap nafta with nothing to take its place it means an end to uncertainty around what the future trading rules will be in North America the agreement also gives house Democrats an accomplishment they can point to other than the impeachment inquiry that's especially important to moderate lawmakers from swing states like Cindy actually allow farmers in her state depend on a continued flow of north American free trade I'm very happy to see where we're at with this and

The whole thing now schiff remember bliss. He makes it all up. He's sick. There's something wrong with them Sisto. He made up my phone call. He made it up. He made up a phone call all and then when I release it everybody was embarrassed and crazy. Nancy Pelosi who by the way is going to go down as the worst speaker in the history of the House of Representatives she. She hasn't done anything all she's she's like paralysed. She cannot do anything Mr President. Gee I predict. You weren't too because Richard Trumka guy. I union guy we haven't heard from the Sei you or trump in a long time and he was all over the Obama presidency they the SEI CIU and with all the unions really worked hard on getting Obama and and so now what trump is saying. Is that Nancy. Pelosi is paralyzed. Because he's pulling the strings and I think they might be something to that. It could be. Yeah and we haven't heard from the guy much really really. He doesn't have the media profile also. And that would make sense predicts you weren't the US. Because Richard Trumka who's a good guy but a big union guy only cares about about a union. Richard Trumka has her mortified. She won't do you. A subsidiary of everybody in the country wants it to farmers manufacturers but Richard Trumka Tazar like. He plays her like a fiddle. And I predict you won't even doing and by the way she's got such pressure to do it. All she has to do is put it to a book. She's he's holding it for. Six months is growing duster and Mexico and Canada calling saying what's going on John Agreement they signed it. Yeah the US MCA man. He keeps bringing that up like sign it all right. Let's get that on the floor. Let's get a vote that's not going to happen. And and and now really the crux of of what trump says is why he's doing all this with some validity. When you you tell me this is the guy who got thrown out of the Navy dishonorably talking? This is Ukraine. The Biden's he's talking about the Biden. Kid You tell me. This is a guy who got thrown out of the Navy dishonorably but gets thrown out of the Navy shortly thereafter. It made no of course you have to look at at corruption corruption. Are we going to be sending massive amounts of money to a country and they're corrupt and they steal the money and then it goes into everybody's bank account so you have to look at that and I will tell you this about job. I never I never said it. Specifically on him but I've watched Joe Biden with the prosecutor who a lot of people Oh said was a great prosecutor and they took them up and he was prosecuting company. And the kid who never made ten cents in his life and all of a sudden Sunday's making millions of dollars that they I mean you you tell me this is a guy who got thrown out of the Navy dishonorably but gets thrown out of the navy shortly there and make no money went through made no money but miss yup VP making millions and millions of dollars..
