President Trump called on Congress to pass a new trade agreement with Canada and Mexico and send it to his desk immediately. He says, "We shouldn't be playing around."

Trump is lobbying for passage of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement at Derco Aerospace Inc., in Milwaukee. He is on his sixth visit to the state since taking office.

Trump worries that passage of the agreement could get less likely with time, saying, "it gets more and more political because we get closer and closer to the election."

Trump says passage of the bill implementing USMCA would show Congress is doing something other than "wasting time on the witch hunt."

Passage is anything but certain. House Democrats want to strengthen enforcement of the agreement's labor and environmental obligations.

Trump will also attend a fundraiser in Milwaukee and stop in Cleveland for another fundraiser. This will be his sixth visit to Wisconsin, one of three Rust Belt states — along with Michigan and Pennsylvania — that traditionally go Democratic but voted for Trump in 2016.
