Colorado Senator Demands Dairy Fix in NAFTA

In a letter to U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, the Democrat insisted that Lighthizer meet “the President’s unambiguous commitment” to address dairy issues with Canada, while also maintaining existing agricultural market access to Canada and Mexico. Bennett referred to President Trump’s visit to Wisconsin when he promised he would correct the alleged unfair practices by Canada.

At the time, Trump said: “some very unfair things have happened to our dairy farmers and others,” calling dairy trade with Canada “another typical one-sided deal against the United States.” The letter comes as trade negotiators continue work to complete the updated agreement and hope to do so by early May, according to reports this week.

Dairy trade, however, has been largely absent from the talks so far. Canada calls the issue a “non-starter.”
