Trump Tapping $12B to Help Farmers Affected by Tariffs

Remember, we are the "piggy bank" that's being robbed.

The U.S. Agriculture Department on Tuesday plans to announce a $12 billion package of emergency aid for farmers caught in the midst of President Trump's escalating trade war, two people briefed on the plan said, the latest sign that growing tensions between the United States and other countries will not end soon....

And American consumers are the ones who get hit with US -imposed tariffs.

Trump has threatened to place tariffs on up to $500 billion in products imported from China, a move that would dramatically ratchet up the stakes in the trade dispute involving the globe's biggest economies.

Trump is tweeting that trade partners need to either negotiate a "fair deal, or it gets hit with Tariffs". Beijing's retaliatory tariffs have hit American soybeans and pork.

This year's showcase comes during a contentious period in USA trade relations, after the Trump administration targeted China and some U.S. allies with steep tariffs on a variety of goods.

President Donald Trump arrives for a tour during a "Made in America Product Showcase" at the White House, Monday, July 23, 2018, in Washington.

The president is scheduled to meet with the EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and European Commissioner for Trade Cecilia Malmstrom on Wednesday to discuss trade relations.

The imposition of punishing tariffs on imported goods has been a favored tactic by Mr. Trump, but it has prompted US trading partners to retaliate, creating risks for the economy. The U.S.is also in the middle of a trade dispute with China and is threatening to impose new tariffs on the European auto sector.
