How Trump's trade feuds impact Valley farmers

Trump also said the European Union had agreed to buy "a lot of soybeans" and increase its imports of liquefied natural gas from the U.S.

Appearing alongside Mr Trump at a news conference, Mr Juncker said as long as US-EU negotiations are ongoing the EU will "hold off further tariffs" on American goods.

"This is a short-term solution to allow President Trump time to work on long-term trade deals to benefit agriculture and the entire USA economy", said Sonny Perdue, the secretary of agriculture, in a statement.

"We hope that this won't happen and that we can reach a solution", Malmstrom told the Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter (DN).

And in a pre-dawn tweet, he said, "Tariffs are the greatest! What we need is certainty when it comes to our trade relationships".

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced $12 billion in aid this week to help farmers hurt by retaliation to the Trump administration's tariffs on foreign goods.

At last month's tumultuous G7 summit, Trump told Juncker he was "a brutal killer", Juncker recounted afterwards, noting that he was unsure whether to take Trump's words as a compliment.

Senator Rob Portman, an Ohio Republican, said he applauded the move to de-escalate tensions over tariffs. Either a country treats us fairly or they get punished. "It's a first step".

"We know that the impact has been substantial enough that it has made the difference between whether there is a profit margin in some cases", Rotz said. "They can't change costs they have in that product", he said.


The truce may prove to be short lived if the two sides can't resolve their differences over trade in vehicles and auto parts.

Conway called for patience amid Republican pushback against Trump's multi-front trade war and internal criticism of a $12 billion package to aide farmers meant to mitigate the escalating trade war.

"They sold it as something very positive, but for me the announcement is not as big for now, because it's kind of a semi-truce", Marie Kasperek, associate director of the global business and economics program at the Atlantic Council, said by phone. The two will hold off on further tariffs and the US will relent on steel and aluminum tariffs. IL farmers export $3 billion of soybeans a year, and those markets are going to dry up.

To date, every time that the Trump administration has imposed a tariff on China, China has imposed an equal tariff on USA goods.

The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, a group of major automakers that includes General Motors Co. and Toyota Motor Corp., welcomed the effort to negotiate a solution that will lower trading barriers, rather than increase them.

Chris Macke is the founder of Solutionomics, an economic think tank focused on developing solutions for a more efficient, merit-based corporate tax code, a more successful USA trade policy, and a stable financial system. As a result, German automaker Daimler, owner of Mercedes Benz, employs more than 22,000 in the U.S.

Trump is meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker (zhahn-KLOHD' YUN'-kur) on Wednesday.

He said the United States and the European Union had agreed to work toward "zero tariffs" on industrial goods, apart from cars. "I'm happy that we agreed to this agreement today".

The Trump administration plans to offer up to $12 billion in aid to farmers hit by tariffs on their goods, an emergency bailout meant to ease the pain caused by President Donald Trump's escalating trade war which led to retaliatory tariffs on goods like soybeans, pork, and beef. Trump could impose auto tariffs on national security grounds once Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross completes a required investigation, which could come anytime before a deadline by early next year.
