The Washington Post recently quoted American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall on the importance of trade to American agriculture.
“We want a trade treaty,” said Zippy Duvall, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation. “We’re concerned [about Trump’s trade rhetoric], but he’s our president and we’re going to try to support him. We did certainly let him know that we’re nervous.”
