Moments ago the USMCA trade deal passed in a landslide 89-10 vote.
Of the 10 that voted against the deal, 9 are Democrat Senators and 1 is a Republican.
The most high profile Democrat voting against the deal is Chuck Schumer, several of the other 10 were or are 2020 presidential candidates including Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Kirstin Gillibrand.
Per TheHill, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced Thursday he would not support the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), citing the proposed deal’s failure to address climate change.
“Despite the fact that it includes very good labor provisions, I am voting against USMCA because it does not address climate change, the greatest threat facing the planet,” Schumer said in a statement.
“Instead of advancing global climate security by outlining binding and enforceable climate commitments from all three countries, the Trump administration provides significant incentives for manufacturers to move their business and their jobs from the U.S. to Mexico, where clean air and clean water regulations are much weaker,” he continued.
