There is a new feeling of urgency among farmers and ranchers to see real progress to end this trade war.
For weeks farmers and ranchers have been told to be patient. As our nation imposes new tariffs and other nations retaliate, we are in the bullseye of this trade war.
Our emphasis continues to be on trade and restoring markets, and we will continue to push for a swift and sure end to the trade war and the tariffs adversely impacting American agriculture and you.
The market impact in this trade war has been deep and wide It will only worsen as the trade fight drags on. The window of survivability for many of our farmers and ranchers is closing with each passing week.
Our clear preference is trade over aid. Farmers and ranchers want to earn their income from the market. This is why I am standing with America’s farmers and ranchers in calling for an end to this trade war.
