American Farm Bureau Federation was quoted in a recent article from The Hill on trade with China. The Hill noted that President Trump “acknowledged that U.S. farmers could take a hit from trade disputes with China but said they will ultimately ‘understand’ why the confrontation is necessary.”

On the current trade situation, AFBF shared with the Hill: “It’s our hope and expectation that both sides will eventually arrive at an agreement that does not include tariffs. Whatever happens, you can be certain our policy will support the interests of farmers nationwide.”
