Trump offers help to farmers hit by escalating China trade war

Negotiations are going really well, be cool. "So the tariff policies that have been put in place by the administration are now causing them to invoke a welfare policy for our farmers which I'm sure is not what they wish.

I applaud the Administration for taking this needed action, and I am confident that President Trump, Secretary Perdue, and Ambassador Branstad are all working diligently to open China's markets to greater trade in Iowa's agricultural products".

"Many U.S. products face market barriers overseas".

Agricultural Committee Chairman Pat Roberts of Kansas says, "They would much prefer trade, rather than aid".

Senators say the aid package could help short-term, but they're anxious about losing long-term access to export markets.

"We're hoping that other countries will see that we're serious now about trade negotiations", Ibach said. The trouble is, China a year ago imported $12.3 billion in US soybeans, the European Union just $1.6 billion.

While the U.S.'s tariffs on imports from China, the EU, Canada and Mexico have been relatively blunt, those levied in retaliation have been targeted with great precision at Trump's base, which includes the producers of products such as pork and soybeans.

Agriculture officials said they would not need congressional approval and the money would come through the Commodity Credit Corporation, a wing of the department that addresses agricultural prices.

Donald Trump and Jean Claude Juncker: ‘Boredom and irritation’ - body language analysed
I've had several White House meetings with President Trump to express my concerns in strong terms. This year's soybean crop could yield a record harvest for IL soybean farmer Dave Kestel.

The White House has made a decision to direct $12 billion in emergency aid to American farmers, to help take the sting out of the trade war that President Donald Trump started.

As the tit-for-tat continued, the Trump administration rolled out a new $12 billion plan to provide subsidies - inviting new criticism from free market conservatives as well as lawmakers who blame Trump's trade war for the tariffs. Trump could impose vehicle tariffs on national security grounds once Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross completes a required investigation, which could come anytime before a deadline by early next year.

Pennsylvania farmers greeted the Trump Administration's announcement Tuesday of $12 billion in emergency aid to agriculture with mixed emotions. The plan aims to provide temporary relief to farmers who have faced retaliation from USA trade partners during Trump's escalating trade dispute with China. Beijing retaliated with tariffs of its own on $34 billion worth of American goods, including soybeans.

"Both sides are now just waiting for the other side to respond", said one Chinese diplomatic source, who requested anonymity.

President of United States lobby group the National Farmers Union, Roger Johnson welcomed the aid, but said the U.S. government needs to do more to provide a long-term fix to the damage the trade war is wreaking. In a briefing call on July 24, Perdue and top department officials explained that the financial boost is created to provide temporary relief to farmers as the United States negotiates long-term trade deals.

President Donald Trump is declaring that "Tariffs are the greatest!" and threatening to impose additional penalties on US trading partners as he prepares for negotiations with European officials at the White House. "It's as simple as that". Juncker said the European Union "can import more soybeans from the USA, and it will be done". Lost $817 Billion on Trade previous year.

Trump is meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker (zhahn-KLOHD' YUN'-kur) on Wednesday.
