Is Donald Trump to Blame for Baby Formula Shortage?

In July 2020, the U.S. entered into the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which discouraged formula imports from Canada due to an increased surcharge per kilogram.

“Trump bears much of the blame for the current shortage of baby formula in the U.S, since his Administration’s USMCA free trade agreement has made it virtually IMPOSSIBLE for our country to import infant formula from Canada,” tweeted Jon Cooper, a prominent Barack Obama fundraiser and former National Finance Chair of Draft Biden 2016.
