    Team Trump's Losing NAFTA Bet

    One month ago, President Trump's top trade official, Robert Lighthizer, was candid about the stakes involved in the administration's gamble on replacing NAFTA. Of the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, he told the House Ways & Means Committee on Feb. 27: There is no trade program in the United States if we don't pass the USMCA.
