Idaho And NAFTA

May 1, 2018

President Trump insists the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is a terrible deal for American workers, but one-quarter of Idaho’s exports went to Canada and Mexico from 2002 to 2016 and the state's agricultural community is very concerned about what a withdrawal from NAFTA could mean for their bottom line.

State Representative Mat Erpelding recently penned an op-ed that outlines a potentially negative impact as a result of a withdrawal; the representative sat down with Gemma Gaudette to discuss his support for the 25-year-old trade agreement.
