WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Corn Refiners Congratulate President-Elect Trump

CRA President and CEO John Bode issued the following statement regarding the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America:

“The Corn Refiners Association congratulates President-elect Trump, Vice President-elect Pence and Members elected to the 115th Congress.  We salute President-elect Trump’s gracious victory speech and look forward to working with the Trump Administration to build jobs and the better, brighter future a return to stronger economic growth will bring.

America’s corn farmers are the most efficient in the world.  A federal government that allows us to produce and sell corn products without excessive regulations or trade barriers would help drive the economic development our president-elect is striving to achieve.  We are eager to support his efforts and enthusiastic about the potential for the men and women who work throughout the corn value chain.


The Corn Refiners Association (CRA) is the national trade association representing the corn refining industry of the United States. CRA and its predecessors have served this important segment of American agribusiness since 1913. Corn refiners manufacture sweeteners, ethanol, starch, bioproducts, corn oil and feed products from corn components such as starch, oil, protein and fiber.
