China isn't the only country on the trade agenda this week.

Axios reporting Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi verbally agreed to a vote on the U.S.- Mexico- Canada Agreement (USMCA) by fall despite some concerns within her party. That’s something Pelosi is denying.

The House of Representatives are already home for August recess and the Senate is not far behind as well. With ratification not likely until Congress comes back from recess, is USMCA D-O-N-E?

AgDay National Reporter Betsy Jibben has the story from Washington D.C. She has sound from Tom Vilsack, President and CEO of the U.S. Dairy Export Council and Former Ag. Secretary; Sen. Charles Grassley from Iowa; Jim Wiesemeyer, Farm Journal Washington Coorespondent and Gregg Doud, the Chief Agricultural Negotiator with the U.S. Trade Representative.
