USTR Lighthizer’s Statement on President Trump’s State of the Union Address


WASHINGTON – U.S. Trade Ambassador Robert Lighthizer released the following statement about President Trump’s State of the Union Address:

“After a year of accomplishments by the Trump Administration, America is stronger, more confident and more optimistic.  The President’s policies are clearly helping to fuel an economic boom that is creating millions of jobs and putting more money in people’s pockets.  His unwavering commitment to promoting America’s interests and insisting on fair and reciprocal trade will deliver even more prosperity to the American people.  As the President has said, America is no longer turning a blind eye to unfair foreign trade practices.  We are and will continue to strongly enforce our trade laws and defend American workers, farmers, ranchers and businesses.”
