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.
