Cohen noted in his guilty plea that "he arranged to pay off two women to keep their stories of alleged affairs with Trump from becoming public before Election Day — in coordination with the then-candidate."  This includes the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels. "Cohen mentioned [longtime Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen] Weisselberg on a secret recording the Trump attorney made in September 2016 and which was aired on CNN [in July].  On the recording, Cohen and Trump appeared to discuss reimbursing American Media for the payment to McDougal, who has said she had a yearlong affair with Trump. Cohen is heard saying, 'I’ve spoken to Allen Weisselberg about how to set the whole thing up.'” Weisselberg was granted immunity in return for providing testimony in the Michael Cohen case. On Thursday November 29, 2018, Cohen also pled guilty to lying to Congress about a Trump real estate project in Russia.  Cohen admitted to lying in an effort to "minimize links between the proposed development and Trump as his presidential bid was gaining steam." Cohen also noted that "talks about the effort in Moscow had extended through June 2016, after Trump had become the presumptive Republican nominee for president...that both Trump and his family members had been briefed on the discussions," and that he had been "pursuing plans to send Trump and himself to Russia in service of the project and discussing the proposed development directly with a representative of the Kremlin." "Cohen could have received up to 65 years in prison if convicted of all charges. However, as part of his plea deal, Cohen agreed not to challenge any sentence between 46 and 63 months. The deal does not involve a cooperation agreement with federal prosecutors.  Cohen is set to be sentenced Dec. 12." Cohen was ultimately sentenced to 3 years in prison on Wednesday December 12, 2018, as well as $1.4 million in restitution and a $50,000 fine, and has been ordered to forfeit $500,000.

On Friday August 31, 2018 Trump formally notified "Congress that he would enter into a trade agreement with Mexico. He stipulated in a letter that Canada could be added 'if it is willing.'” "The United States runs an overall trade surplus with Canada, one of its biggest trading partners.  Trump wants Canada to end its steep tariffs on US dairy products, claiming they hurt US farmers. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has pledged to protect his country's dairy industry.  Trump on Friday also threatened new tariffs on Canadian cars if the country doesn't comply with US-terms of a new trade deal." The new USMCA deal was announced on Monday October 1, 2018 after coming to an agreement with Canada the previous day and Mexico in August. The most significant changes from NAFTA are as follows:
  • "Automobiles must have 75 percent of their components manufactured in Mexico, the US, or Canada to qualify for zero tariffs (up from 62.5 percent under NAFTA)."
  • "40 to 45 percent of automobile parts have to be made by workers who earn at least $16 an hour by 2023. Mexico has also agreed to pass laws giving workers the right to union representation, extend labor protections to migrant workers, and protect women from discrimination. The countries can also sanction one another for labor violations."
  • Canada's dairy market will now be more accessible to U.S. dairy farmers
  • "The terms of copyright [are extended] to 70 years beyond the life of the author (up from 50). It also extends the period that a pharmaceutical drug can be protected from generic competition."
  • "New provisions to deal with the digital economy [include] prohibiting duties on things like music and e-books, and protections for internet companies so they’re not liable for content their users produce."
  • Canada and Mexico did not get protection from section 232 tariffs (the trade loophole Trump used to impose steel and aluminum tariffs).
Congress still has to approve this new trade deal, which could take years. Be wary of fake news on this- a Fox News opinion piece notes that Trump had already replaced NAFTA with a new deal with Mexico in August of 2018.
