The Senate passed a rewrite of the North American Free Trade Agreement with strong bipartisan support Thursday, handing President Donald Trump another trade victory on the same day that impeachment proceedings moved from the House to the upper chamber.

The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which updated the quarter-century-old NAFTA, has long been a signature priority for the Trump administration. Its 89-10 passage came at a critical moment for the president, who faces charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress less than a year ahead of the 2020 elections.

USMCA was the result of months of negotiations between the Trump administration and House Democrats, culminating in rare across-the-aisle cooperation at the same time that the Senate began procedural steps in the impeachment trial of Trump.

While trade experts say the new pact may have a limited effect on the economy, it offers Trump a clear message for voters alongside a highly anticipated economic truce with China. "I think Trump is strengthened by the deals and also with the backdrop of a strong economy with record low unemployment, wage growth, and a hot market for 401Ks," said David Kochel, a veteran Republican strategist in Iowa.
Looks like things are coming together for Trump before the election.
