Apr, 09, 2018

In a press gaggle held in conjunction with his cabinet meeting today, President Trump indicated that he understands farmers have a lot to lose when it comes to exports. The president specifically mentioned the Chinese tariffs situation and NAFTA renegotiation as costly to farmers who are having a downtrend, as the president put it. He reaffirmed his direction to USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue to, “…make it up to them (farmers).” The President also said, “Our farmers are great patriots...They understand they are doing this for the country.”
