Trump said that it will issue a second round of subsidies to US farmers. US media: unable to make up for losses
US media said that even if there is a news that China has resumed buying US soybeans, US President Donald Trump said on the 17th that he will still issue a second round of subsidies to farmers suffering from tariff damage. However, this cannot compensate for the loss of soybean growers this year due to trade wars. According to CNN’s December 18 report, Trump said on Twitter on the 17th: “Today, I fulfilled my promise to protect our farmers and ranchers from foreign unwarranted trade retaliation. I have authorized Agriculture Minister Sonny Perdue to implement the second round of payment for the market promotion plan.” The report said that the US soybean growers were particularly hard hit. In retaliation for the imposition of new tariffs on the United States, China stopped buying US soybeans in July.
