WASHINGTON — Republican U.S. Senators John
McCain and Ben Sasse said on Wednesday they would vote against
President Donald Trump’s nominee for U.S. trade representative,
Robert Lighthizer, because of his opposition to the North
American Free Trade Agreement.”Unfortunately, your confirmation process has failed to
reassure us that you understand the North American Free Trade
Agreement’s (NAFTA) positive economic benefits to our respective
States and the nation as a whole,” McCain and Sasse said in a
letter to Lighthizer.
