Jan 16, 2020 - CNN

(CNN) -- Senators of both parties came together Thursday morning to pass President Donald Trump's foremost legislative priority -- the revised North American Free Trade Agreement -- with his historic impeachment trial about to formally begin.

Among other changes from the Bill Clinton-era trade agreement known as NAFTA, the USMCA includes new provisions for digital commerce, more stringent rules of origin for auto parts and new minimum wage requirements for certain auto workers.
