John Cornyn

Texas Tribune

Texas’ Senior US Senator stressed the importance of the North American Free Trade Agreement or NAFTA following President Donald Trump’s comments at a rally in Arizona predicting a termination of the agreement.  

During his campaign-style speech in Arizona, the President said that he doubted the U.S. could renegotiate NAFTA with Mexico and Canada and ultimately terminating the agreement would be a likely outcome.  

US Sen. John Cornyn agrees the trade deal needs to be revamped, but says talk of ending it would be dangerous to the Texas economy.

The U.S. Senate leadership is promising a vote before July 4 on its bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

From Texas Standard:

Trump cited Comey's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails as the reason for his dismissal, but others are worried that the firing may have had something to do with the agency's investigation into possible collusion between Russia and Trump's campaign, during the election.
