The Trump administration this week announced the second part of a trade mitigation assistance package to help farmers and ranchers hit hard by the ongoing trade disputes. The following quote regarding the package is from American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall.
“This latest trade mitigation package announcement will help our farmers and ranchers weather the continuing trade storm. We continue to feel price pressure and very real economic damage due to the trade actions other nations have taken against our U.S. farm exports. While this assistance package will help a number of our farm families during this year of severe economic challenge, the best way to provide lasting relief is to continue pushing for trade and tariff reform from trading partners like China, Canada, Mexico, India, Turkey and the European Union.”
