There was talk of trade as President Donald Trump took the stage at the 101st American Farm Bureau Federation convention on Sunday. After Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue welcomed President Donald Trump to the stage, Trump jumped straight to the point as he approached the podium. “We did it,” he exclaimed. “They all said you’ll never get NAFTA changed… or get a deal done with China.” Just one year ago on the same stage, President Trump talked trade. Just days ago, a phase one trade deal with China was signed and the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement is headed to the president’s desk. Earlier in the evening, Secretary Perdue stated the president will sign the USMCA “very soon.” President Trump went on to mention the occasion could even prompt a trip to farm country. The trade deal with China was also mentioned several times. “I think China is going to go all out to prove the agreement we signed is good, and we have very strong stipulations in there.” In closing, there was assurance from Trump to the 6,000 Farm Bureau members in attendance that “the best days for farmers and ranchers are yet to come.” Listen to the full RRFN coverage of the event and watch the speech.
