Washington, D.C. - Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) visited the White House on Tuesday for a discussion on the USMCA trade agreement and personally thanked President Trump for approving Nebraska’s disaster declaration in response to harsh weather and historic flooding throughout much of the state. 

“I was happy to visit the White House today and deliver a message of appreciation to President Trump on behalf of Nebraskans. His swift response to our request for a federal disaster declaration will be very helpful to rebuild after historic storms and flooding,” said Smith. “Expanding market access through USMCA will also go a long way toward enabling our farmers, ranchers, and small businesses to recover and thrive in the long term.”

The purpose of Smith’s visit to the White House was to discuss passage of USMCA, or new NAFTA, which is critical to Nebraska’s agricultural economy.
