MARYVILLE, Mo.

Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill continued her tour of rural parts of Missouri with a town-hall style meeting in Maryville on Tuesday.

Much of her message at the Nodaway County Senior Living Center was over concerns of many of President Donald Trump's current policies.

McCaskill said the president's tax overhaul plan needs a lot of work. She also spoke out on how the current administration is addressing student loans and voiced caution over a possible administrative plan to end the NAFTA agreement.

"One of the things I'm most worried about is in the renegotiation of NAFTA, that ag doesn't end up being the one that takes the hit," she said. "Our number one exports of ag products and commodities in Missouri is to Canada and number two is to Mexico. If we're not careful in this renegotiation, you're going to see retaliation."

It's still unclear when Trump will reach a full decision on the NAFTA renegotiation.

Temperatures start off in the 40s Monday morning with a chance for some scattered rain showers and possibly a few snowflakes. Once we get past rush hour a cold front will push though and start to drop our temperatures and increasing wind speeds. Because of this, our highs will only be in the 20s tomorrow and wind gusts out of the north will be between 15-20mph. After Monday we will gradually warm back up to highs in the 40s for the rest of the week.
