WASHINGTON, D.C. – Gov. Kim Reynolds traveled to Washington, D.C. for a meeting with President Donald Trump on issues that affect Iowa farmers.

At the round table discussion, Reynolds and Trump were joined by other governors and congressional leaders. The issues they covered included those affecting farmer, agricultural trade and more.

After the meeting, Reynolds said, “Good news for E15 year-round waiver, encouraging discussion on TPP & stressed importance of access to markets & resolving trade issues w/China in a timely manner.”

In a prepared statement, Reynolds said:

“I want to thank the president for a productive meeting on agriculture and trade. He understands that for our farmers to be successful, we need to grow – not contract – our markets. 

“In addition to discussing trade with China, we emphasized the importance of finalizing NAFTA negotiations, expanding the use of E15 year-round and reconsidering the TPP.

“The president listened to our concerns, said that he is determined to resolve the dispute with China, said that he intends to expand E15 and ordered his top advisors to study the possibility of reentering the TPP.

“I appreciate the opportunity to meet with the president, as well as his administration’s continued commitment to partner with states and listen to their concerns.”
