Earlier this morning, First Lady Michelle Obama visited the U.S. Trade Representative Agency to thank USTR employees and Ambassador Kirk for their work on behalf of American businesses, workers and families.

The fact is that folks across this country depend on trade to put food on the table and pay the mortgage and send their kids to college” said Mrs. Obama. “But what a lot of people don’t understand is that your work isn’t just about boosting GDP or negotiating billion-dollar trade agreements. It’s about keeping the American Dream alive for hardworking folks in every corner of this country who depend on you – even if they don’t always realize it.”
