On Monday morning, President Trump stood in the Rose Garden of the White House and announced the end of the North American Free Trade Agreement. He had long characterized the pact—which, in 1994, created a free-trade zone in North America—as “perhaps the worst trade deal ever made.” At the press conference, he claimed that the treaty had led to enormous American trade deficits, and the loss of millions of manufacturing jobs. “For twenty-five years as a civilian, as a businessman, I used to say, ‘How could anybody have signed a deal like nafta?’ ” Trump said. “Throughout the campaign, I promised to renegotiate nafta, and today we have kept that promise.” The agreement came after months of negotiations and a dramatic threat from the United States that it would leave Canada, its second-largest trading partner, out of the deal altogether, or impose tariffs on Canadian automobiles, if Canada didn’t submit to its demands. On Sunday, Canada finally capitulated. The new treaty, Trump announced, would be called the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. “It sort of just works . . . U.S.M.C.A.!” Trump said. “It has a good ring to it.”
