    The Trump administration has triggered the process for submitting a bill to Congress that would implement the president's new trade deal with Canada and Mexico.

    The notification sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi riled Democrats.

    They say it will not speed up consideration of a bill to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement.

    The procedural step undertaken Thursday must be made at least 30 days before the administration can submit its legislation to implement the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

    [NATL] Footage From 1992 Shows Trump, Epstein at Party

    NBC released footage in its archives from 1992 of Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein at a party at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. The video shows them laughing and pointing as they appear to talk about women at the event, NBC News reported. Trump has said he knew Epstein, but “was not a fan” and they have not spoken in 15 years.

    Vice President Mike Pence says Thursday's action is "all about moving forward on an agreement that we know is a win."

    But Pelosi is describing the administration's efforts as "not a positive step." She says Thursday's move "indicates a lack of knowledge" on how to pass a trade agreement.
