BISMARCK, N.D. – Gov. Doug Burgum today expressed his support for the priorities outlined by President Donald Trump in his 2020 State of the Union Address, including strengthening the economy through new trade agreements and energy independence, expanding workforce training initiatives and lowering the cost of health care.
“Tonight President Trump outlined a vision for America that builds upon the economic growth, historic low unemployment and rising wages that have benefited citizens in North Dakota and across the nation under his administration,” Burgum said. “We’re thankful for his continued focus on securing better trade deals for U.S. farmers, ranchers and businesses – especially the historic U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which will strengthen relationships with North Dakota’s top two trading partners – and his support for working families, rural broadband and training programs to meet workforce demands and unleash the full potential of American entrepreneurship. We also appreciate the President’s commitment to maintaining a strong military, ensuring peace through strength.”
