U.S. Corn Exports to Mexico: Will Policy Rhetoric Turn into Concrete Action?02/21/2017
On Monday, February 13th, Patrick Gillespie reported at CNN Money Online that, “Mexico is one of the top buyers of American corn in the world today. And Mexican senator Armando Rios Piter, who leads a congressional committee on foreign relations, says he will introduce a bill this week where Mexico will buy corn from Brazil and Argentina instead of the United States.
“It’s one of the first signs of potential concrete action from Mexico in response to President Trump’s threats against the country.
“‘I’m going to send a bill for the corn that we are buying in the Midwest and…change to Brazil or Argentina,’ Rios Piter, 43, told told CNN’s Leyla Santiago on Sunday at an anti-Trump protest in Mexico City.”
