In January, several of Michigan's agriculture leaders wrote to the Trump Administration emphasizing the value of agricultural trade for Michigan's economy and agricultural success. Trump often spoke against trade deals during his campaign and promised to renegotiate NAFTA. The leaders wrote, “Domestic markets alone can’t consume Michigan’s production of grain, dairy, pork, processed food products, biofuels, nursery crops, fruits and vegetables. We have to export! That’s also why our industry is consistently working to be proactive, looking ahead to how we can expand market access and break down barriers for Michigan agriculture products.” The letter urged Trump to consider trade deals with those nations that would enhance market access for U.S. agricultural products.
