Gov. Ricketts Comments on China 'Phase One' Deal Signing

LINCOLN - Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued a statement as President Donald J. Trump signed a 'Phase One' trade deal with China.

'Congratulations to President Trump on securing a Phase One trade deal with China. The President's relentless focus on right-sizing our trade relationship with China is important for Nebraska as we seek to expand markets for our ag products around the world. Looking to the future, the U.S. must stay the course on addressing remaining priorities in our national interest in Phase Two.'
