Domestically, Trump is supposed to have already had a win. His administration negotiated a replacement trade agreement with Canada and Mexico known as the USMCA. Trump, as you might expect, called it a “great deal”, but the issue is that Democrats in Congress want changes and the legislation has not been scheduled for a confirmation vote in the House of Representatives yet.
The president is clearly anxious that he has not had a “win” in a while and the delay on the USMCA has put pressure on his international dealings. Trump has sought to build his political reputation on being a dealmaker and he has yet to follow through.
