Dux says Lighthizer needs to work closely with the new USDA undersecretary for trade to help grow and expand markets for USA farmers and ranchers.
U.S. agricultural groups voiced approval for the confirmation of Robert Lighthizer by the U.S. Senate as the new U.S. Trade Representative, a position that plays a key role in the development and implementation of worldwide trade policy.
The US Senate on Thursday approved Robert Lighthizer, Mr Trump's nominee for US Trade Representative, allowing the president to trigger the process for opening Nafta for revision. They said the United States deserves a trade representative "who will renegotiate NAFTA in order to build on its successes, not as a pretext for unraveling it". "America's food and beverage industry manufacturers - companies large and small from coast to coast - are affected by USA trade agreements and trade-related policies, chief among them US sugar policy". -China Economic and Security Review Commission, he lambasted US trade officials as too passive in the face of China's economic rise.
Following months of delay and urging by more than a hundred agriculture groups, Lighthizer was confirmed by a vote of 82-14 on May 11. And Peter Navarro, a vociferous critic of China, is advising the White House on trade.
A staunch opponent of Trump on nearly every issue, Peters embraced Lighthizer's criticism of the 1993 North American Free Trade Agreement and his more skeptical views toward multilateral trade deals of the past.
USF football player LaDarrius Jackson charged with assaulting a second woman
Sheriff's officials say the alleged victim in the March case is NOT the same woman involved in last week's case. Jackson, 22, was dismissed from the team after turning himself into police according to the report.
Just two years ago, a solid bipartisan majority supported free trade.
Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) was the only other Republican to vote against Lighthizer.
Lighthizer's philosophy, Rosenthal suggests, essentially boils down to: "How can we afford to be unilateral free traders when the Chinese don't reciprocate?" Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) had taken off in the respective Republican and Democratic presidential primaries by lambasting TPP and NAFTA as representing everything wrong with Washington, supporting corporate profit margins over manufacturing workers in the United States. In his 2010 testimony, Lighthizer had said the US should more aggressively scour WTO rules for new ways to bring cases against China - for manipulating its currency, say. "Lighthizer's confirmation to USTR is an encouraging step in developing trade policies that continue to promote USA food and agriculture production", Moore said. Trump has threatened to withdraw from the agreement with Mexico and Canada if he doesn't thinks discussions are going his way.
"Right now, we're in a tough patch, and we're trying to get a trade policy squared away", Roberts said.
