The Trump administration stepped up its campaign to win support for a new trade agreement with Canada and Mexico that faces congressional headwinds.

In a visit to Canada’s capital, Vice President Mike Pence said Thursday the White House was making “energetic efforts” to get the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement passed through Congress this summer, calling it an “historic opportunity to strengthen the economic ties” of the three countries.

The agreement is intended to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement.
