More Republicans than Democrats supported NAFTA:

The Facts

Bill Clinton was certainly a supporter of NAFTA who pushed approval through Congress. But it was negotiated and signed by President George H.W. Bush.  Moreover, more Republicans than Democrats voted for the deal, as the trade pact was vehemently opposed by labor unions. One key ally for Clinton was then-House Minority Whip (and later House speaker) Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), who is said to be on Trump’s list of possible running mates.

NAFTA was a successor to a free-trade pact with Canada. Bush had viewed NAFTA as a political opportunity, an achievement for his reelection campaign. He initialed the deal on Aug. 12, 1992, before the GOP convention, and then formally signed it in December 1992, after he had lost the election to Clinton.

Clinton had supported the pact during the presidential campaign but said he wanted to negotiate side agreements with Mexico concerning enforcement of labor and environmental laws. He didn’t pursue ratification in Congress till after those agreements were reached in August 1993 — but the deals were denounced by labor and environmental groups as too weak.

So Clinton did not negotiate NAFTA, nor did he sign it. But he did put his political prestige on the line to get it approved by Congress — even as two top Democrats, House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt (Mo.) and House Majority Whip David Bonior (Mich.), opposed it. In the House, NAFTA  passed 234-200; 132 Republicans and 102 Democrats voted in favor of it. The Senate approved NAFTA 61-38, with the backing of 34 Republicans and 27 Democrats.

Ok thank you bigbear29. I just didn't understand why Trump said that he might leave it.

    Trump would be a lot better if he would do his homework.  But he does not, which is scary.

      Trump is not going to except the will of the people if he does not win?   A BIG NO NO for trump.

       

      And he does not get women voters.

            Did you notice the top of her podium was lit up (like the last debate) so she could read off her teleprompter? While Trumps podium was completely dark.

              Bottomline, trump did not move the need at all.  Than he blow himself up at the end.  It is the will of the people to elect the president.  It is not rigged like trump wants you to believe.  Trump blow himself up tonight.

                    She's so full of it she stinks, just like the sewage she left on the streets of Georgia.

                    She says she won't raise taxes, she neglects to say the 2017 Obamacare mandates will crush the middle class.

                    We will have more taxes, even higher health care, higher co-pays, the dollar will continue to shrink and the cost of food will skyrocket along with goods and services.

                    Business will really hurt as more and more people get rid of the extras, I already know so many who have stopped adding to their 401k's, stopped magazine subscriptions, downgraded cable, are not eating out. all the little things we do that help the economy will give way to stagnant wages, and higher cost of living.

                    If America is just working to pay for  health care premiums, higher co pays, housing and food, not much left for retirement and the little extras, So much for the American dream.

                      Anyone else sick of hearing Hillary remind us she was Sec. of State and a Senator?

                      I thought Trump wrapped it up pretty nice when he said if you want four more years of Obama that's what you'll get with her.

                      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                        It was probably done to make her look like the light...

                            Donna Brazile is spinning like a top with Megyn Kelly about how she leaked town hall question to Clinton.   How embarrassing, she didnt want to come right out and say she did not have the question because when it comes out she will be caught in a lie so she was just chirping nonsense.

                            Ummm Ahhhhh.....just like Hillary when she was trying to think how to answer.  I have noticed she gets that goofy smile, then comes the ummm ahhhhhbefore she answers.

                              It's called a winning smile.  Trump is up by 2 points in Texas.  Texas might be turnning BLUE!
