Did anyone tell Trump that farmers think NAFTA is just fine?

TPP, NAFTA and Paris are all agreements that we withdrew from, and has no positive proposals to replace them.

I don't think they really care about the agriculture. Their proposed budget was very bad for farmers and actually cut funding for rural infrastructure.

Might be too late for better deals. Mexico just diverted 20% of their corn purchases to Argentina, Canada signed a trade deal with the EU, which eliminates duties.

Right. To my understanding, we already have a good deal with NAFTA. We have lost most of the beef and pork trade with Japan because we dropped out of the TPP
