Congress might attach partisan demands to before the approval but it is renegotiated. So you are wrong about it. You should have said : "It has not been approved by Congress yet".

Obviously trade war is just started and it is painful, but it needed to be done.
No leader in the World has challenged China's incredible arrogance and lawlessness up to now. BTW, no one knows what UK or US GDP numbers are, as it is all hot air coming from Financial markets that is counted towards GDP.
NAFTA is not renegotiated, it is currently a draft Agreement. Congress must approve it and so must the Mexican and Canadian governments; if they do not all approve it then it is in the dustbin.

Mexico and Canada have both stated they will not ratify USMCA before Trump drops his steel and aluminium tariffs which tariffs are not mentioned in USMCA.

US House Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal said it won’t be easy to get the new North American pact through Congress, adding that it’s unclear whether renegotiation will be necessary to get the votes it needs for passage.

Currently USMCA is dead in the water, even Trump himself has not yet moved forward by formally asking Congress to start the approval process. Trump missed the boat, he should have gone for approval while the GOP had a Congress majority.

It is true no leader in the World has challenged China's incredible arrogance and lawlessness up to now. Now it looks like Trump will fail to achieve much and so demonstrate why other leaders avoided this challenge

It is clear that Trump believes the GDP numbers as he keeps quoting them publicly so your claim they are hot air is not relevant to anything in the real world
