U.S. Lower House backs trade pact

Friday, December 20, 2019

The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday passed President Donald Trump's revised North American Free Trade Agreement, with members sending Trump's foremost legislative priority — just a day after the divided chamber took the historic vote to impeach him -- to the Senate.

Trump's trade deal is one step closer to ratification after more than a year of negotiations between his administration and House Democrats, passing with an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote of 385-41, CNN reports.
