Hundreds of business leaders across the country are urging lawmakers in D.C. to sign the United States Mexico Canada Agreement, or USMCA, into law.

This is the agreement that would replace the 25-year-old NAFTA and open the doors for smoother trade among the three countries. President Trump has also pressed Congress to approve the trade pact without delay.

On Thursday, leading industry associations joined U.S. Chamber CEO Thomas Donohue in a press conference to once again put pressure on Congress to pass the deal.

To talk about what happened, The Show reached out to John Murphy, senior vice president for international policy.
