Poliquin Urges Caution and Deliberation in Any Proposal to Reenter TPP Foreign Trade Deal

April 12, 2018
Press Release
Poliquin has opposed the TPP trade deal in the past, arguing that, on balance, the trade agreement would harm Maine workers

WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Poliquin (ME-02) released the following statement today after reports that President Donald Trump is considering taking action for the United States to reenter the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) international trade deal:


“I’ve expressed my strong concern that a trade deal like the TPP could harm Maine, especially our job creators like our mills and New Balance, which employs hundreds of Mainers at multiple locations around our State,” said Congressman Poliquin. “I don’t care if this is being proposed by a President Obama, as he did during his term, or now potentially by a President Trump. I will continue to study any agreement to ensure that Maine jobs, our workers, and our families are not harmed. I will oppose any foreign trade deal which, on balance, harms Maine workers.”
