This collection contains e-mails, draft remarks, background materials, and memoranda pertaining to the President’s remarks in support of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) at the Distinguished American Endorsement Event on November 2, 1993. During this event, well-respected individuals, including former President Jimmy Carter, publicly endorsed NAFTA. President Clinton followed these endorsements with his own argument in favor of the agreement. President Clinton outlined the economic and foreign policy benefits of the treaty and asked Americans to inform Congress of their support. Congress passed the necessary legislation later that month.
