Trump claims Pelosi was trying to use trade agreements to get votes on the impeachment
"And I was told – and who knows if that is so, but I think it is – that she uses USMCA because she does not have the indictments, so she uses USMCA to get the impeachment vote "Trump said.
USMCA is the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement, as the new trade agreement is called. It is a recast of the 25-year North American Free Trade Agreement. Pelosi announced last week a contract for the new NAFTA "imminent" and said she would like to say goodbye to him this year.
Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill rejected Trump's comments.
Work diligently with his sales representative to advance the Democrats on their way to the YES in the USMCA, "Hammill said. "Apart from the desperate attacks of the president, this problem is completely independent of the ongoing impeachment investigation."

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, whose support for As many Democrats are crucial, on Tuesday met with freshmen from Pelosi and House Democratic to call for "solidarity" as workers and Democrats advocate for stronger enforcement measures in the agreement. Some of these newcomers represent swing districts and urge a quick vote on the trade agreement, which could benefit constituents in the Midwest and elsewhere.
Trumka then met with Pelosi and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard E. Neal (D-Mass.), Who expressed optimism about the negotiations with the Trump administration.
"We narrow the differences ̵
