President Donald Trump came to Council Bluffs, Iowa to promote the new year-round availability of E15. Trump promised to defend American farmers and farm income will rise. “Within a year-and-a-half, I would say you would be in the best position that you’ve been in for 15 years and you deserve it.” Trump highlighted numerous topics, ranging from Waters of the United States to trade. Trump said the U.S.-Canada-Mexico Agreement will be good for agriculture. “It’s a winner and we just wanted to do the opposite (of the North American Free Trade Agreement). How bad was NAFTA and what they did to you with NAFTA?” Trump was joined by Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler on the trip to Iowa.
