Ambassador Lighthizer Comments on President Trump’s State of the Union Address

February 04, 2020

Washington, DC – United States Trade Representative released the following statement tonight about President Trump’s State of the Union address:

“Thanks to President Trump’s strong leadership, America is thriving under his economic and trade policies.  President Trump is negotiating better trade deals for the American people, and our country has secured tremendous victories in historic agreements like the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, the China Phase One Agreement, the U.S.-Japan Trade and Digital Trade Agreements, and the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement.  Each of these agreements brings new opportunities for American workers, farmers, ranchers and businesses to sell their goods and services to more customers around the world while creating new jobs and a stronger economy for our country.  President Trump has kept his promise to chart a new and better course for U.S. trade policy through fairer and more balanced agreements.  This enormous success is only the beginning of what we will accomplish under his leadership.”
