Trump to announce support for farmers caught in trade disputes

Though tariffs are hurting farmers' incomes, and are already causing price hikes on consumer goods such as washing machines, President Donald Trump declared Tuesday that "tariffs are the greatest". 'In the near term is there some relief we can look at?

Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, a Republican, criticized the bailout, and the administration's underlying trade policy.

"The payments will be helpful to farmers facing overdue loans and angry bankers, but are completely insufficient if they mean that tariffs and the trade war will last for the foreseeable future", Hurst said.

Indeed, the plan magnified objections among many Republicans that the tariffs amount to taxes on American consumers.

Trump has said current trade policy disadvantages US farmers and manufacturers, and supporters say USA tariffs slapped on billions of dollars of imports are a necessary step to negotiate better deals.

Trump has threatened to place tariffs on up to $500 billion in products imported from China, a move that would dramatically ratchet up the stakes in the trade dispute involving the globe's biggest economies.

China has targeted U.S. agricultural exports with tariffs in retaliation to those imposed by U.S. President Donald Trump, because the majority of voters in the farm states voted for him in the 2016 election.

The money comes after farmers, especially soybean growers, have felt the brunt of retaliatory tariffs placed on agriculture by China and other nations that the Trump administration has penalized with tariffs on imports.

Punishing tariffs have been introduced on imported goods from Canada, China, and the EU.

NK seeks breakthrough by dismantling missile facilities
The North didn't turn it into a spectacle as they did with the Punggye-ri nuclear test site in May. By July 22, significant progress had been made at the site.

The US slapped tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports.

President Trump showed off a new campaign hat on Monday-it's green with yellow letters, reminiscent of the John Deere logo, and it reads "Make Our Farmers Great Again", notes Politico. The U.S. and European allies have been at odds over the president's tariffs on steel imports and are meeting as the trade dispute threatens to spread to automobile production. The financial aid is expected to go into effect by Labor Day.

The USDA did not immediately comment.

About one out of every three rows of USA soybeans is shipped to China, according to estimates. If tariffs punish farmers, the answer is not welfare for farmers - the answer is remove the tariffs.

Trump said in a speech to the VFW that farmers will be "the biggest beneficiary" in the long run.

In that year, President Herbert Hoover signed a major tariff bill, which was later followed by a Wall Street crash and the Great Depression.

"I think there are better tools that we can use to hold abusers of trade law and people whose countries perpetuate unfair trade practices, [and] get them to play fairly", Ryan said on Tuesday. It's as simple as that - and everybody's talking!

Industry groups that represent agriculture, as well as politicians from agricultural states, have criticised the tariffs.
