USDA commits $12B for farmers, ranchers affected by tariffs

Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) says Trump's imposition of tariffs on products from such allies as Canada under national security grounds was "completely absurd", and that now the president is resorting to "farm welfare" when US farmers want trade.

Trump has placed tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, saying they pose a threat to USA national security, an argument that the European Union and Canada rejects.

"We agreed today, first of all, to work together toward zero tariffs, zero nontariff barriers and zero subsidies on non-auto industrial goods", Trump said during his remarks in the Rose Garden as he stood next European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.

EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom, who will accompany Mr Juncker, expressed hope for a "de-escalation" of the tensions, but said the EU is drawing up a list of more U.S. products that could be hit with retaliatory duties if the trip fails. Remember, we are the "piggy bank" that's being robbed.

The comments come the same day the Agriculture Department announced its short-term plan to help farmers through a mix of payments, purchases and trade promotion efforts. We continue to urge the administration for the swift resolution of our trade negotiations with China and our NAFTA trading partners, as well as pursuing new trade agreements.

He added: "Pretend someone smashed your auto, and then someone said, 'Don't worry, I will give you a ride to the next place you have to go.' Well, thank you, I appreciate the ride, but what am I going to do the next 10 rides I need after that?"

Trump's tweet comes less than 24 hours after the US Department of Agriculture authorized $12 billion of support for farmers and ranchers hurt by tariffs imposed by China. "This administration's tariffs and bailouts aren't going to make America great again, they're just going to make it 1929 again".

They also agreed to increase trade in services and agriculture, including greater U.S. soy bean exports to the EU.

As I travel across Iowa meeting with farmers, they tell me that they want to see a more thoughtful approach to our trade policies, rather than the tit-for-tat tariffs and retaliations that we have recently seen. Fall is the biggest season for American soybean farmers.

"I am glad that the administration finally seems to understand that the Trump-Pence tariffs are hurting the American people", said Sen.

Brussels has already retaliated against the steel and aluminum tariffs, imposing punitive duties on more than $3 billion of U.S. goods, including blue jeans, bourbon and motorcycles, as well as orange juice, rice and corn.

Chuck Connor, president and CEO of the National Council of Farmer Cooperatives, said they look forward to working with Perdue and the USDA over the next month on details for the three programs, which will help farmers weather the trade war in the short term.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused China of "vicious" tactics on trade as he prepared for tough negotiations with European leaders in an escalating trade battle among world powers.
