Trump Plans Farm Bailout To Deal With Backlash To His Trade War
24 July, 2018, 21:23
The White House has already imposed a 25% tariff on $34 billion worth of Chinese products and, three weeks ago, threatened an additional round worth $16 billion. "We'll make it up to them", he said. Trade agreements with those countries have undermined the U.S. manufacturing base and led to a wave of job losses in recent decades, according to Trump.
Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue says the plan will help a broad number of farmers deal with the cost of "disruptive markets" as USA trading partners have retaliated for President Donald Trump's tariffs on imported goods.
In a separate tweet he said that tariffs his administration has imposed are working to bring other countries to the negotiating table.
The president has engaged in hardline trading negotiations with China, Canada and European nations, seeking to renegotiate trade agreements he says have undermined the nation's manufacturing base and led to a wave of job losses in recent decades. After $34 billion in tariffs against China went into effect earlier this month, China responded with its own equivalent tariffs soon after, targeting USA agricultural products including soy, corn, wheat, pork, poultry and more.
Punishing tariffs have been introduced on imported goods from Canada, China, and the EU. But in response to American tariffs, Beijing imposed its own on soybeans, in addition to other American agricultural products. One week later, autoworkers, foreign ambassadors, and lawmakers spoke out against new potential tariffs against imported cars and auto parts.
