Americans For Farmers & Families Statement On President Trump’s Successful Negotiation Of Updated U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement

(Washington, D.C.) – Americans for Farmers & Families today released the following statement from spokesman Kevin Lawlor regarding President Donald Trump’s successful negotiation of the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS):

“The announcement that President Trump and his administration have successfully negotiated revisions to the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS) is an encouraging sign for America’s farmers and rural families.  President Trump is committed to maintaining, but updating existing trade agreements so that they are best positioned to work well for American consumers, farmers, manufacturers and workers well into the 21st Century.  With negotiations ongoing between the United States, Canada and Mexico on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the KORUS revisions demonstrate there is a way forward to preserve and improve trade agreements delivering more jobs and opportunity for our nation.”
