Who said Obama is not pro-trade?

From Barack Obama's inaugural address:

"To the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to
make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow; to nourish starved
bodies and feed hungry minds. And to those nations like ours that
enjoy relative plenty, we say we can no longer afford indifference to
suffering outside our borders; nor can we consume the world's
resources without regard to effect. For the world has changed, and we
must change with it."

Does this mean that the US is willing to get rid of its high
agricultural subsidies, which has been a main obstacle to the DDA?
