Trump planning emergency aid to farmers affected by tariffs

Trump planning emergency aid to farmers affected by tariffs

The president is to meet European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker and other European officials at the White House as their trade dispute threatens to spread to vehicle production.

The effect of new tariffs on small and medium-sized businesses, the protection of which was a prominent staple of Trump's presidential campaign, was a recurring theme on Tuesday morning, with a number of witnesses from the chemical industry saying that such companies are reliant on imported products that only China offers. He told reporters he entered Wednesday's meeting with the intention of reaching an agreement with Trump.

Juncker's visit to Washington came during a rocky period in U.S.

"We should talk about reducing tariffs instead of increasing them", Mr Juncker said, as Mr Trump nodded.

Trump said he is working on the steel and aluminum tariffs.

The finance ministers for Mexico and Canada said yesterday they were optimistic about Nafta talks with the United States, even as trade tensions spurred by U.S. tariffs dominated the G20 meeting of world economic leaders in Argentina.

"I can't argue they are trying to help us but how long will this last?" said Watne.

"We are starting the negotiation right now, but we know where it is going".

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced that it will provide approximately $12 billion in funding to protect farmers from potential damage caused by tariffs imposed by China, Mexico, Russia and others. U.S. stocks and bond yields rose on signs of optimism that a U.S. -EU trade war could be avoided.

They can also cut off US producers, including farmers, from foreign marketplaces that have been predictable annual sources of income in the past.

Juncker's visit comes amid an escalating trade war between the US and the the wake of Trump's decision to slap tariffs on imports of aluminum and steel last month.

China, the European Union, Canada and Mexico have all been hit by USA levies on imports including steel and aluminum and have retaliated by placing their own tariffs on US agricultural exports, thus targeting farm states that are politically important to the president. But they also exact a toll on domestic companies and consumers through higher prices on imported goods when American trading partners retaliate.

Malmstrom is in Washington for talks on trade.

"We're stopping the barriers to other countries". The two leaders plan to discuss USA tariffs on aluminum and steel and Trump's threat to extend duties to European cars coming into the United States. A formal proposal would only come after the US Commerce Department completed its investigation into whether auto imports threaten national security.

The negotiations at the White House came as Trump has touched off a series of trade disputes with global trading partners, including China, whom he accused earlier Wednesday of employing "vicious" tactics aimed at hurting American farmers. "I think we're going to be seeing fours".

China is the largest buyer of US soybeans and one of the largest importers of USA pork.
