Congressman Adrian Smith Confident on U.S. Trade Deals

June 27, 2019 - 12:40pm

U.S. Rep. Adrian Smith (R-NE) is confident progress is being made in on-going trade negotiations between the U.S. and China and with Mexico.

President Trump threatened additional tariffs on China earlier this week, and while Smith opposes tariffs, he said the Trump Administration has been doing a good job.

“I hear from a lot of Nebraskans who are appreciative of what is taking place," Smith said. "Even from ag producers, themselves, and they’re sacrificing."

The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA, has been in the works since September 2018. Smith believes both sides will want to come together to get the agreement finalized.

“I really have a hard time thinking that Nancy Pelosi wants to be speaker and preside over the demise of trade in North America,” Smith said.

He said if passed, the USMCA will be good for U.S. agriculture.
