Trade Deals Offer Trump Fodder To Tout On Trail This week, President Trump inked deals in the two trade spats that have helped to define presidency: The US-Mexico-Canada Agreement, an incremental upgrade of NAFTA; and, a so-called 'Phase One' deal to deescalate his trade war with China.

It remains to be seen what, if any, impact the bilateral deals have on the U.S. economy, but it seems certain that the president will tout the agreements on the campaign trail—particularly in states with large agricultural and manufacturing sectors.

This episode: White House correspondent Tamara Keith, Chief Economics Correspondent Scott Horsley, and National Political Correspondent Mara Liasson.
