Trump says he hopes to strike trade deal with Europe

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.

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.
