Discussing North Dakota's Priorities with President Trump
I met with President Trump to discuss trade priorities.
The renegotiation of NAFTA into the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement is a win for North Dakota. Producers would benefit from Canada’s reduced trade distorting policies and improved transparency, and the exports of North Dakota grain growers would be recognized properly thanks to the grain grading fix. I pressed President Trump to work with Congress to ratify this agreement.
We also discussed the importance of working toward a deal with China that is good for our nation’s agricultural community. For decades, China has acted in bad faith, and American farmers and businesses pay the price. I urged the President to fight to secure a trade deal that fulfills his promises and benefits the American people.
Congratulations, Prime Minister Netanyahu
Benjamin Netanyahu won another term as Israel's Prime Minister. This was a well-earned victory for him and for the people of Israel who exercised their right to vote in a free and transparent election.
Israel’s democratic system is why they remain our closest ally in the region.
Interior Department Secretary Bernhardt
The Senate voted to confirm David Bernhardt as the U.S. Secretary of the Interior this week.
I appreciated meeting with Secretary Bernhardt and explaining the issues facing North Dakotans. His commitment to reducing the heavy hand of the federal government is greatly appreciated, and I look forward to working with him to produce real results back home.
