Lt. Gov. and Sen. Randy McNally (R-TN-05) on Wednesday participated in a panel discussion at the White House with lieutenant governors from across the country.

The discussion featured National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow and White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and centered on the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), according to a statement from McNally’s office.

McNally tweeted, “President @realDonaldTrump has committed to putting America first in all things, especially trade. I was grateful for the opportunity to learn about the new agreement and how it will affect our economy.”

He also tweeted, “I was honored to join my fellow lieutenant governors from across the nation at the @WhiteHouse to discuss the state of our economy and how #USMCA will impact our states. Free trade is beneficial for our economy, but only if it is fair trade.”

McNally said in his statement, “I was honored to join my fellow lieutenant governors from across the nation to discuss the state of our economy and how the new North American trade deal will impact our states. Free trade is beneficial for our economy, but only if it is fair trade. President Trump has committed to putting America first in all things, especially trade. I was grateful for the opportunity to learn about the new agreement and how it will affect our economy.”

A collection of 30 lieutenant governors from both political parties participated in the panel, McNally’s office said. Along with Kudlow and Mulvaney, Small Business Administrator Linda McMahon and Deputy United States Trade Representative C.J. Mahoney also took part in the discussion.

The panel was part of the National Lieutenant Governors Association’s Federal-State Relations meeting taking place March 27-29 in Washington, D.C.

McNally’s biography on the Tennessee General Assembly website says the Oak Ridge Republican has been a hospital pharmacist at Methodist Medical Center from 1978 to present.
