Six Republican senators met with President Trump and Vice President Pence on Thursday last week to advocate for preserving the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), reports the National Pork Producers Council.

“A primary discussion point was the negative impact a withdrawal would have on economic and stock market momentum,” the report said. The appeal came from Sens. Roy Blunt, Mo., Cory Gardner, Colo., John Hoeven, N.D., Pat Roberts, Kan., Dan Sullivan, Alaska, and John Thune, S.D.

The sixth round of NAFTA talks is set for Jan. 23 in Montreal.

“NPPC continues to urge the Trump administration to remain committed to NAFTA and to maintain zero-duty market access for pork exports to Canada and Mexico,” said NPPC. “A U.S. withdrawal from NAFTA would cost the U.S. pork industry $1.5 billion.”
