Bob Krist on Free Trade

 

 


Trump's trade war would devastate Nebraska's economy

Sen. Bob Krist, candidate for Nebraska governor, says that President Trump's threats to start a global trade war would be devastating to Nebraska's economy and called on Gov. Pete Ricketts to lobby Vice President Mike Pence to stop the Administration's threats.

"Nebraska is the number one exporter of beef and one of the top exporters of corn and dried distillers," Krist said. "Gov. Ricketts, on behalf of Nebraska cattle producers and farmers, tell Vice President Pence to stop Trump's foolhardy and dangerous threats to our farmers and ranchers' livelihoods," Krist said.

Nebraska topped all other U.S. states for beef exports in 2017 for a second year in a row, exporting $1.26 billion worth of beef. In all, Nebraska's $6.4 billion in agricultural exports in 2015 translate into $7.8 billion in additional economic activity in Nebraska.

"Gov. Ricketts should tell Vice President Pence that Nebraska will not forget selling us down the river over a foolish trade war," Krist said.
