THEY SAID IT!
USTR Chief Agricultural Negotiator Gregg Doud & Senator Lindsey Graham Highlight Benefits Of NAFTA

U.S. Chief Agriculture Negotiator Gregg Doud: “Everybody Understands The Importance Of Agriculture With Regard To Trade In This Country.  Uncertainty In Commodity Markets Is Always Bearish, So What We Have To Do In Short Order Is Create Certainty [By Quickly Wrapping Up NAFTA Talks And Looking For New Export Opportunities].” (Adam Behsudi, “T-Minus 2 Weeks To More China Tariffs,” Politico Morning Trade, 8/8/18)

Senator Lindsey Graham: “I’m With Trump.  It Is Now Time To Stand Up With China, But The Way To Be Effective Is To Get The NAFTA Deal – A New NAFTA Deal – And A New Deal With Europe, And All Of Us Combined Go to China.” (Niels Lesniewski, “Lindsey Graham Cheers Trump China Policy After Golf Outing,” Roll Call, 8/6/18)

  • Graham: “I Think By September We Can Have A New Agreement With NAFTA Countries – Mexico And Canada. We Can Modernize NAFTA, Which Would Be A Win-Win For All Of Us, Then Eventually Get A Deal With Europe So We Can Have Better Access To Their Markets.” (Niels Lesniewski, “Lindsey Graham Cheers Trump China Policy After Golf Outing,” Roll Call, 8/6/18)
