The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was inspired by the success of the European Economic Community (1957-1993) in removing tariffs to stimulate trade among its members. Supporters argued that the creation of a free trade area in North America would bring prosperity through increased trade and production, resulting in the creation of millions of well-paying jobs in all participating countries. The main provisions of NAFTA required a gradual reduction in tariffs, tariffs and other trade barriers between the three Member States, with some tariffs to be abolished immediately and others over a 15-year period. The agreement guaranteed duty-free access for a wide range of industrial products and goods traded between the signatories. „Domestic goods“ have been granted to products imported from other NAFTA countries and prohibit all governments, local or provincial, from imposing taxes or tariffs on these products.

Before sending it to the U.S. Senate, Clinton added two subsidiary agreements, the North American Agreement on Labor Cooperation (NAALC) and the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation (NAAEC) to protect workers and the environment, as well as to allay the concerns of many members of the House of Representatives. The United States has required its partners to comply with similar environmental practices and regulations.
[Citation required] After much attention and discussion, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the North American Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act on November 17, 1993. Supporters of the deal included 132 Republicans and 102 Democrats. The legislation passed the Senate on November 20, 1993, 61-38.  The Supporters of the Senate were 34 Republicans and 27 Democrats. Republican Congressman David Dreier of California, a staunch supporter of NAFTA since the Reagan administration, has played a leading role in mobilizing support for the agreement among Republicans in Congress and across the country.   The political divide was particularly large in terms of views on free trade with Mexico. Contrary to a positive view of free trade with Canada, which 79% of Americans called fair trade partners, only 47% of Americans thought that Mexico practiced fair trade. The gap between Democrats and Republicans has widened: 60% of Democrats thought Mexico was fair trade, while only 28% of Republicans did. That was the highest number of Democrats and the lowest figure ever recorded by Republicans in the Chicago Council survey.
Republicans had more negative views on Canada than fair trade partners and Democrats.  Congress could consider the impact of President Trump`s decision to withdraw from the TPP and its consequences. Some TPP partners have announced their intention to advance a similar agreement without the United States, which could have an impact on U.S. competitiveness in some markets. Canada and Mexico have many free trade agreements with other countries and can continue to try to diversify trade through free trade agreements. Mexico`s economy minister said he was ready to negotiate a new agreement with the Asia-Pacific, which could be similar to the TPP, and to include China in the talks.112 The Chilean government also announced that it would pursue trade agreements with the Asia-Pacific region and invited ministers from other TPP countries, as well as China and South Korea, to discuss a summit in Chile in March to discuss the next step. Many countries are expected.113 Chris Chase, „A Brief History of Productio
