“The President’s trade deal with China is great news for American farmers, manufacturers and energy producers. With Missouri being made up of two-thirds farmland and home to a thriving auto industry, our already strong economy will continue to approve. I’m extremely grateful that we have a President willing to address China’s hostile trade policies head on and even the playing field for our workers and exporters.”
