Agriculture groups have increased their pressure on the U.S. to negotiate and modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement, rather than withdraw. U.S. Representative Ron Kind, a Democrat from Wisconsin, says farmers voices are being heard by the president and trade negotiators.
Kind, who supports modernizing the trade agreement, says there are ways to improve the agreement without losing trade markets. He says Canada and Mexico have option outside of the U.S. when it comes to trade.
Kind says the recent round of NAFTA talks saw progress, but much work remains to wrapping up the negotiation effort.
Meanwhile, President Trump recently suggested he would reconsider joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership, if the deal could be reworked. While other administration officials brushed off the comments, Kind says TPP should be reconsidered.
That’s U.S. Representative Ron Kind of Wisconsin.
