President Trump hailed the new North American trade agreement Monday afternoon; saying the revised international agreement will have the “most advanced protections” for American workers ever developed.

The Commander-in-Chief addressed the nation from the White House lawn just hours after US and Canadian negotiators struck an 11th hour deal to replace NAFTA; calling the new policy the US-Mexico-Canada-Agreement -better known as USMCA.

“Once approved by Congress, this new deal will be the most modern, up-to-date, and balanced trade agreement in the history of our country with the most advanced protections for workers ever developed,’ said the President.
