Marshall Joins Trump at White House for Historic USMCA Signing
WASHINGTON, D.C. - On Wednesday, at the invitation of President Donald J. Trump, Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D., attended the official White House ceremony for the signing of the USMCA trade agreement. Canada and Mexico are the United States’ two single-largest trading partners, making this the most consequential trade agreement in U.S. history.
“This signing represents the continued work being done by the Trump Administration on behalf of America’s farmers, ranchers, and small business owners,” said Dr. Marshall. “This marks yet another major promise kept by this President and a huge step forward in fairer and more reciprocal trade between these three countries. This agreement will bring long-term stability for Kansas agriculture, and not to mention, millions of dollars in new trade opportunities that will result in thousands of Kansas jobs.”
The U.S. exported a combined $4 billion in goods to Canada and Mexico in 2018 alone. The USMCA trade agreement will result in more than $68 billion in new economic activity, stability, and certainty for America’s agriculture producers and small business owners. This 21st century agreement will also set a new standard for all future multi-lateral trade agreements.
“I was proud to stand by a President who just delivered BIG on behalf of hard working Kansans.”
