President Donald Trump wants to see the North American Free Trade Agreement renegotiated quickly.
Speaking with reporters yesterday, The President said NAFTA has been a disaster for the United States and for U.S. workers.
“NAFTA’s been a catastrophe for our country and a catastrophe for our workers, and our jobs and our companies, they’re leaving our country. I want to change it and maybe redo it. Maybe we redo NAFTA and put an extra ‘F’ in the term…Free and Fair trade” said Trump.
Many U.S. farm organizations however support the current trade pact. Last week over 130 state and national ag organizations sent a letter to the President asking for a voice in renegotiations.
The letter says U.S. agriculture has benefited from NAFTA and the Canadian and Mexican export markets in the agreement help rural U.S. communities sustain prices and revenues.
