The President noted that he “spent time with some of the farmers in Wisconsin — and as you know, rules, regulations, different things, have changed; and our farmers in Wisconsin and New York State are being put out of business — our dairy farmers.”
Trump continued by contending, “The fact is, NAFTA — whether it’s Mexico or Canada — is a disaster for our country. It’s a disaster. It’s a trading disaster.”
