With the signing of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement on Wednesday, Jan. 29, by President Donald Trump, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue issued the following statement: “Today is a good day for American agriculture. Throughout this process, there were many detractors who said it couldn’t be done. But this is further proof that President Trump’s trade negotiation strategy is working. This agreement shows the rest of the world the United States is open for business. USMCA is critical for America’s farmers and ranchers, who will now have even more market access to our neighbors to the north and the south. I am excited to see the economic benefits of this agreement increase the prosperity of all Americans, especially those living in rural America.”
We couldn’t agree more.
