Ross Burkhart

Ross Burkhart was quoted in an article published by PolitiFact, a news service that assesses the accuracy of statements by public officials. This particular article, “Has U.S. racked up $2 trillion in trade deficits since NAFTA began?” addresses a statement made by President Trump: “Since NAFTA’s adoption, the United States racked up trade deficits totaling more than $2 trillion.”

Burkhart added context to the statement, noting that benefits of NAFTA include the marked increase in trade volumes, in particular U.S. exports entering the NAFTA markets to a much greater extent.
