    Default Hoffa: USTR Nominee Lighthizer May Signal Positive Change in Future U.S. Trade Policy

    (WASHINGTON) – The following is a statement from Teamsters General President James P. Hoffa on the nomination of Robert Lighthizer for USTR by President-elect Donald Trump.

    “With the nomination of Robert Lighthizer to be the U.S. Trade Representative, President-elect Trump has laid the groundwork for following through on his campaign promise to end the U.S. trade policies that have devastated working families for the past 30 years.

    “Lighthizer has been an outspoken opponent of the so-called ‘free-trade’ agenda his entire career, standing apart from other Republican trade advisors who have remained in lockstep with the party’s ill-advised views on trade. It is our hope that as USTR under President-elect Trump, Lighthizer will enact policies that help our working families by strengthening U.S. industry and bringing back good-paying jobs to our country.”

    I have never liked Trump. Don't know how many times I have to say it. And this guy Robert Lighthizer I don't know enough about to make a statement on him yet. I will take a wait and see attitude.

    And just because Jimmy Hoffa says it is good thing, well you know how I feel about him.......

    Wow! Yes there is but not as far as who was running for president. I like Obama actually. I liked George W. Bush as a person. I just didn't think he made the greatest president but I thought he was a good person until Chaney got his claws in him.
