Fox Business Network interviewed American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall on how the U.S.-China trade war is affecting American agriculture. Duvall and other panelists on Fox’s “Bulls & Bears” show discussed how farmers are dealing with the situation.

“Farmers are hanging tough, hoping we’ll get that level playing field across the world,” said Duvall. “When we get things settled, when this president levels that playing field, there’s no doubt in my mind that China’s going to be buying agricultural products from us because in a lot of those commodity areas there’s not enough commodities to go around.”
