Florida’s Agriculture Commissioner and 2018 Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam, penned a letter to the U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer backing President Trump’s revisit and revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

The Clinton-era deal has been good for Canada and Mexico, but not so much for the U.S., especially if you consider the amount of drug trafficking and crime that has flourished because of the trade deal.

“As you are aware, producers of perishable and seasonal agricultural products in Florida and other regions have been decimated by unfair trading practices resulting in a strong and unprecedented growth in imports from Mexico…Family farms in Florida and other states have found no relief from these unfair practices in our current trade laws or the current NAFTA agreement.”-Adam Putnam

One of Trump’s 2016 campaign promises was to scrap all the “bad deals,” including NAFTA. Trump later tore into former President Bill Clinton in one of his historic televised presidential debates.
