At an event in Pennsylvania last Friday, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said there is "good news" in NAFTA negotiations.  

“When over 20 percent of every dollar depends on foreign sales in pork, poultry, our grains and other things, we’re very mindful of that,” Perdue said according to Politico. “I think we’re seeing some good news in NAFTA negotiations. I think Canada and Mexico have figured out the president’s serious about that. While it’s created some anxiety in the ag community and to USDA, to some degree, I think ultimately, we’ll get a good deal done there.”

Perdue, the 71-year-old former governor of Georgia, also said it would be "bad" if NAFTA was scrapped, according to Politico.
