American Farm Bureau Federation’s John Newton was quoted in a Wall Street Journal article on trade relations between the U.S. and Canada.  While “a fight over a little-known dairy product sits at the center of increasing tensions between the U.S. and Canada over broader trade issues” explained the Journal, U.S. agriculture is alarmed by the Trump A administration’s attacks on the North American Free Trade Agreement.
