During the State of the Union address, President Donald Trump touted trade policies including the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement. Trump said the USMCA will expand markets for farmers and ranchers. The president said the trade deal delivers more fairness and reciprocity “because it has been many, many years that we were treated fairly on trade.” In addition,Trump highlighted his trade strategy with China. “Days ago we signed a groundbreaking new agreement with China that will defend our workers, protect our intellectual property, bring billions and billions of dollars into our Treasury and open vast new markets for products made and grown right here in the USA.” Roads, bridges and broadband also got attention in the speech with President Trump saying it is time to rebuild America’s infrastructure.
