U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) and dozens of her colleagues last week urged President Trump to build on the economic momentum spurred by tax cuts by remaining in NAFTA and modernizing the trade pact for the 21st century.
“The effort you have led to modernize the agreement for the 21st century is incredibly important and, in combination with the historic tax cuts that you signed last year, has the potential to unleash the American economy unlike any other time before,” wrote Walorski and 63 of her House colleagues in a letter to the president. “We can further improve economic opportunities for American consumers, workers, and job creators by remaining in NAFTA and modernizing the agreement. We look forward to working with you and your Administration to realize our shared goal of a modernized NAFTA that will foster even greater economic success for Americans as we continue to compete and win around the world.”
The letter, led by Walorski and Reps. Pete Sessions (R-Texas), Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), and Mimi Walters (R-Calif.), was signed by 64 Republican members of the House of Representatives.
