U.S. Senator Mike Rounds says he’s fearful President Trump’s support in farm country could begin to diminish if tariffs continue without any signs of an agreement.
Rounds says it would be useful if the President could find other markets to buy into the nation’s commodities.
Agriculture producers and manufacturers are feeling the brunt of the latest tariffs and Rounds says it’s coming at a time when planting is late and soils are saturated. He says most farm state legislators are very nervous.
Senator Rounds says that one of the things that would have given the United States a huge lead in the negotiation process is rejoining the Trans Pacific Partnership.
