Certified American Grown and America’s flower farmers congratulate President Trump on his State of the Union speech. "We continue to appreciate his commitment to American businesses and American workers and we welcome his bold declaration that the theft of American jobs and wealth is over", the organization writes in a statement.
"America’s flower farmers respect President Trump’s goal to level the playing field in all future trade agreements such as the USMCA and in ongoing discussions with China. We support President Trump’s 'America First' trade policy. We’re hopeful that this administration will finally end the unfair trade practices that have adversely affected American flower farms and have marginalized the value of the American jobs they produce. America’s flower farmers have spent the past 30 years fighting to maintain their livelihood in the face of trade agreements such as the Andean Trade Promotion and Drug Eradication Act (ATPDEA) that sacrificed this iconic American sector of agriculture to reduce drug trafficking. Sadly, drug production in these Andean countries remains at an all-time high.
"With Valentine’s Day around the corner, America’s flower farmers appreciate President Trump’s 'America First' mantra and reminding Americans about the importance of those four beautiful words—'MADE IN THE USA!'"
