The USMCA is a win for Mississippi and the Nation. It incorporates modern, strengthened, and rebalanced rules of trade and investment for North America. With USMCA, we will have more growth, more exports, more jobs, and rising wages. This is HUGE for America’s economy. #USMCAnow

Michael Guest

Any trade deal should help ensure market access for our hard-working farmers. I support the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement proposed by President Trump because it will grow our agriculture and food exports by $2.2 billion, which is good news for Mississippi farmers.

Cindy Hyde-Smith

The USMCA will be a HUGE win for American Workers. It will add $68 billion to the American economy, creating over 176,000 new jobs. I support this new trade deal, and I thank Donald Trump for his hard work on getting a better deal for Mississippi and America!

USMCA would support over 97,000 jobs in Mississippi, increase production of state-made goods.

Tate Reeves
Lieutenant Governor

Great talk with Deputy USTR CJ Mahoney and USDA Foreign Ag Undersecretary Ted McKinney about how Mississippi's economy will benefit from USMCA by Donald Trump. Congress needs to act!

Congress has the votes to pass the #USMCA, but instead of passing legislation that would help our hard-working farmers and ranchers, Democrats are focused on a partisan impeachment process. #USMCANow

Andy Gipson
Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce

Did you know ag exports support 16,800 jobs in Mississippi? The USMCA is good for MS farmers, ranchers, businesses and workers. It’s time for Congress to pass #USMCAnow #Agnews

While much of today’s focus is on the empty impeachment inquiry, Congress still needs to act on the #USMCAnow. The #USMCA lays the foundation for the future of North American Trade. It’s time to bring our trade agreement into the 21st century.


Glenn McCullough, Development Authority Executive Director

The USMCA agreement is a WIN for our economy uniting the 🇺🇸 🇨🇦 🇲🇽 for free and fair trade which is why Gov. Phil Bryant and 27 other Governors support its passage. Canada is Mississippi’s #1 Trade Partner!
