Highlights:

One Mission: “Rest assured, President Trump has one mission in mind, and that is to create a more level playing field for all of our industries here in the United States.”

Equal Access: “I just did a tour of my state with the Secretary of Agriculture and met a lot of farmers all over the state. The message I heard overwhelmingly in my state is that they are interested in more exports and more equal access.”

Growing Exports: “People are looking at exports in a different light under this President. Now we see an opportunity to actually grow our exports. If we’re going to continue to grow at 3% or 3.5% like we’re doing now, we have to grow our exports long-term.”

 Business Perspective: “I am a pragmatist, and our President is as well. He comes from the business community, and he’s demonstrated over and over again that he’s willing to back up and go in a different direction in order to get results. That’s what you do in business when you’re trying succeed and accomplish a goal.”
