NOT ALL #FARMERS LOVE #NAFTA

As agriculture groups continue to tout the benefits of trade and NAFTA, some U.S. farmers are looking to President Donald Trump to level the playing field when he begins to renegotiate the 23-year-old trade agreement Aug. 16. According to sheep and cattle rancher Giles Stockton, from Montana, NAFTA “limits our sovereignty to run our affairs as we see fit. It made us share adverse diseases with other countries. It increased imports, decreasing domestic prices. And it fed into the monopolization of the industry on a global level.” (NPR’s The Salt)
