However, Ernst admitted to “CBS This Morning” that she doesn’t know what is in the trade agreement:
We haven’t seen the negotiated texts of the language that’s being put out there for the agreement and I do look forward to going through that very specific text.
But we do know that we all feel as Americans and Canadians and Mexicans that this is a great way forward. It is modernizing what was NAFTA and we have an even stronger agreement now.
“CBS This Morning” explained to Ernst that this new agreement doesn’t add anything new for Iowa farmers that they didn’t already have under NAFTA.
