Trump Tapping $12B to Help Farmers Affected by 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.
