Statement on U.S. Sugar Deal with Mexico

June 16, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement about the sugar deal struck between the United States and Mexico:

“President Donald Trump has truly changed the way America does business with the world. His strong Commerce Department negotiating team, led by Secretary Wilbur Ross, has negotiated a tough enforceable sanction against Mexico, due to their long-time sugar dumping policies. The rule of law, including enforcement of treaties, only matters if they are strictly enforced. The days of turning a blind eye towards those who harm American workers and industry by violating trade rules are over. Elections matter and Donald Trump’s election as President is bit by bit restoring America’s leadership in the world.”
