Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-3) today visited the White House to join a round table discussion with President Trump, governors from several agricultural states, and members of the U.S. House and Senate to discuss recent trade tariffs and challenges facing American agriculture. After the meeting, Lucas released the following statement:

“I enjoyed the opportunity to sit down with President Trump to discuss the importance of the next Farm Bill, as well as the impact of trade tariffs here at home, especially throughout rural America,” said Congressman Lucas. “Farmers, ranchers, manufacturers, and energy producers rely on our foreign trade partners in order to sell their goods into the world market. I was impressed with the president’s sincerity to expand trade opportunities for American products, and I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress and the Administration to promote fair trade deals that will strengthen our producers’ ability to compete globally.”
