U.S. Agriculture Secretary Perdue “Hopeful” For Successful NAFTA & Promises To Protect Farmers
U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue: “I’m Hopeful That We Will See A Successful NAFTA Conclusion Here Shortly. It’s Never Done ‘Till It’s Done. Never Over ‘Till It’s Over. But I’m Hopeful We Will Do That.” (Committee On Agriculture, Nutrition & Forestry, U.S. Senate, Hearing, 4/24/18)
- PERDUE: “So, I have to go back to the president looking me in the eye and saying, ‘You know Sonny, I know farmers out here are worried about what we’re doing. You need to tell them I’m not going to let them be the casualties in this trade dispute’ … I’m with you, Mr. Chairman, I’d rather have trade than aid … We would love to have a fair, reciprocal trade arrangement with every country in the world … You know, you can export a factory, you can’t export a farm.” (Committee On Agriculture, Nutrition & Forestry, U.S. Senate, Hearing, 4/24/18)
