U.S. President Donald Trump is scheduled to sign a trade pact between the United States, Canada and Mexico on Wednesday during a ceremony at the White House, said an administration official while adding, invitations for attending the event has already been sent.
The ceremony will take place midst a backdrop of Trump’s impeachment trial.
Trump is expected to capitalize on the pact after the signing as he travels around in the United States.
“This is a major accomplishment for the president and he will be taking this on the road in the coming weeks,” said the official.
Trump, who is running for re-election this year, has made pursuing new trade pacts a key component in his presidency.
The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), will replace NAFTA.
USMCA is yet to be ratified by Canada.
The deal cannot take effect until it has been ratified by all three member nations.
