Trump joins leaders of Canada, Mexico to sign new trade pact – AOL News

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — President Donald Trump joined the leaders of Canada and Mexico at a global meeting in Argentina on Friday to sign a revised North American trade pact, fulfilling a longstanding political promise with a deal he celebrated as a “groundbreaking achievement.”The U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement is meant to replace the 24-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement, which Trump has long denigrated as a “disaster.” However, ongoing differences over steel and aluminum tariffs the U.S. has imposed on its northern and southern neighbors encroached on the celebratory moment.

Prophecy: This Is a Year of Apostolic Authority and Liberty — Charisma Magazine

As I was spending some time with the Lord, He began to speak to me about prayer and the next wave of houses of presence. I have had a series of prophetic encounters recently about the houses of presence that the Lord is establishing to act as governmental centers for the kingdom of God on earth. There is a radical reform at hand as a new breed of apostolic hubs arise. These are places of divine pursuit and also glorious presence. The people of God are being drawn back to the place of pursuit and encounter.
