The Ultimate Hypocrisy? Trump Plan to Renegotiate NAFTA Resembles TPP Deal He Withdrew From

The Trump administration has released their plans for renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement. Observers say they are surprisingly similar to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which Trump withdrew from in one of his first acts as president. As the White House kicks off its "Made in America"-themed week, labor leaders say the new NAFTA plan worsens protections for workers and would be "the ultimate in hypocrisy." "There’s enough vagueness in the descriptions that it’s unclear of the things that simply must be done," says Public Citizen’s Lori Wallach. She also notes that "[Trump] has refused to divest his business interests. He’s refused to disclose what his full investments are in Mexico and Canada."
