WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats appear to be moving from “no way” to “maybe” on President Donald Trump’s rewrite of a trade pact with Canada and Mexico.House Democrats have met four times with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, most recently on Friday.Both sides say they are making progress toward a deal that would clear the way for Congress to approve Trump’s U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA.Talks could still fall apart.Democrats want the agreement to include stronger protections for workers and the environment. They also want to jettison a provision they see as a giveaway to pharmaceutical companies.House Democrats working on USMCA say they will submit language next week “memorializing” what they call concrete and detailed proposals.Paul Wiseman And Kevin Freking, The Associated Press
