“NAHB commends President Trump for working tirelessly to make the USMCA a reality and for signing this landmark trade deal. Trade policy affects housing costs and the USMCA represents an important victory for the American economy, for American workers and for housing affordability. By adding new jobs, boosting wages for American workers, and including provisions to lower the costs of materials needed to build and repair homes, this trade pact is a positive step forward to ease America’s housing affordability challenges.”
