Farmers Frustrated By Trump Trade Tactics
submitted 12 months ago by lbt

Farmers across the country are bearing the burden of the tariffs put in place by President Donald Trump. This week at a congressional hearing, some of them shared concerns about the president’s trade tactics including the possibility for shrinking export markets, rising costs and bankers making lending more difficult. “I am hearing more from farmers as time goes along that they still trust that President Trump knows what he’s doing, and everything will be fine in the end. We understand that other countries, particularly China, have not played fairly, and we respect his desire to remedy those situations,” said Scott VanderWal, a South Dakota farmer and vice president of the American Farm Bureau Federation.
