02/05/2019

Washington, DC – U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer released the following statement about President Trump’s State of the Union address:

“In his State of the Union address, President Trump outlined a visionary trade agenda that resonates across party lines and will accelerate America’s manufacturing resurgence, expand export opportunities for our farmers, ranchers and small businesses, and promote America’s leadership in today’s digital economy.  The President is confronting China’s unfair trade practices, working to open new trade negotiations with countries around the world, and replacing NAFTA with an innovative, landmark agreement for the 21st century – the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).  This new agreement is a model for all future trade deals.”
