Newhouse at USMCA Signing Pt 1
NEWHOUSE … “How many times have you asked me, what about the USMCA, what’s going to happen with that, and I think I’ve probably, if I told you once, I’ve told you a dozen times, it should be soon.”
Well, “soon” finally came on January 29th and Newhouse was proud to be on hand …
NEWHOUSE … “I was very happy to be invited to the signing ceremony and, like I said, this was a momentous day for people in Central Washington. You know, we are literally the most trade-reliant state in the country when it comes to many of the products that we produce, and so it’s a big deal. It’s a big deal for us and I wanted to be there and congratulated the President for successfully getting this agreement done.”
Newhouse says it was important for him to be there …
NEWHOUSE … “I’ve been engaged as much as possible as well, and I just thought it was an important thing to be there and make sure that the efforts that were put forth on many people’s behalf went recognized and, so I thanked the President for his leadership and his direction and his tenacity to make sure that we got this done."
Tune in tomorrow for more on the signing and the work that went into it.
