Trump Vows to Fix Wisconsin Dairy Situation, Discusses Abolishing NAFTA

 |  By: Anna-Lisa Laca

This week President Trump made a stop in Wisconsin to discuss job creation. While he was there, he promised to support dairy farmers, fix the trade situation with Canada and make big changes to NAFTA.

“We’re using every tool at our disposal to restore the American dream,” he told the crowd at the Snap-On Inc. headquarters in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  “We’re going to stand up for our dairy farmers in Wisconsin.”

The President said he’s been reading about the situation and discussing it with advisors. He plans to demand fair trade with all of our trading partners, “and that includes Canada.”

“Because in Canada, some very unfair things have happened to our dairy farmers,” he said. “What has happened to you is very unfair.”

Trump promised a group of leaders including Gov. Scott Walker, several senators from Wisconsin and Speaker Ryan would join him to figure out the Canadian trade situation starting Tuesday. 

“We’re going to get together and we’re going to call Canada and we are going to ask them what happened,” he said. “They might tell us what happened, but we are going to ask them what the solution is. It’s a terrible thing that happened to the farmers of Wisconsin.”

During the same speech President Trump said NAFTA has been a “complete and total disaster” for the U.S. and that he plans to fix it.

“We are going to make some very big changes or we are going to get rid of NAFTA once and for all,” he said.
