WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer bent the president's ear on Thursday about Canadian dairy pricing. In a statement released today, Schumer says it's "an unwise policy that violates our agreements and hurts our farmers, and we agreed to work together to immediately address the issue."

The release, which follows below in its entirety, states that Schumer, along with Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Congressman Paul Ryan plan to develop a "comprehensive plan" to tackle the issue.

“President Trump and I spoke yesterday about reversing Canada's new and unfair dairy-pricing policy. It is an unwise policy that violates our agreements and hurts our farmers, and we agreed to work together to immediately address the issue. 
"Since Canada’s damaging policies also impact dairy farms in Wisconsin, I suggested reaching out to Speaker Ryan. The three of us, in conjunction with Senator Tammy Baldwin and other stakeholders, will develop a comprehensive plan to tackle this issue. 
"We can all agree that, it is critical to level the playing field for our hard-working dairy farmers and make sure our Canadian neighbors rescind their unfair policy and again play by the rules,” said Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer.
