Podcast: The Trade Deal’s Overlooked Liberal Policies

There’s a lot to like about the new United States-Canada-Mexico trade deal (also known as the USMCA), says Tori Whiting of The Heritage Foundation. But there’s also some elements that should give conservatives pause, such as minimum wage requirements and liberal social policies on sexual orientation and gender identity. Whiting joins us to explain what’s good and what’s bad in the deal—and what lawmakers can or can’t do to change it. Plus: We discuss how the new Broadway edition of “Oklahoma” will be “gun neutral.”

We also cover these stories:

  • The U.S. ignores China and Russia at its peril, warns a new report released by Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats that states, “China and Russia are more aligned than at any point since the mid-1950s.”
  • Senate Democrats have delayed a final committee vote on William Barr to be the next attorney general, pushing his likely confirmation to next week.
  • A Democrat-run House committee is floating the idea of removing “so help me God” from the oath witnesses take before speaking to the committee.
