Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-3) released the following statement upon news that the Trump administration reached a trade agreement with China.

“I applaud the Trump administration for proactively securing a trade deal with China,” said Congressman Lucas. “This agreement immediately ends China’s 14 year ban on beef imports, a move that will drive demand for U.S. beef and strengthen cattle producers here at home. For states like Oklahoma, which produces more than it can consume in ag and energy products, it’s critically important we identify new opportunities to trade our products into the world market. A trade deal with China means improved access to an enormous foreign market, as well as the opportunity to reduce our country’s trade deficit. I look forward to working with the administration to support strong trade deals that will move our economy forward.”
