European Union agrees to buy more USA soy, import more liquified gas

Trump had offered a similar sentiment Tuesday evening, when he suggested on Twitter the European Union and USA drop all tariffs, barriers and subsidies - although he predicted that the bloc would not be ready for such a proposal.

Soybean prices - in the face of trade fears with China - have hovered around historic lows for months, leading Republican lawmakers in red states to raise red flags about the impact these tariffs could have on Trump country.

The Trump administration will reportedly today announce up to US$12 billion in emergency relief for farmers hurt by the trade war, the New York Times reported. "We were being nice - until now!" He warned that those who pursue "economic hegemony" will "only end up hurting themselves".

President Donald Trump said that the US and the European Union should drop all tariffs, barriers and subsidies, just hours before the bloc's trade chiefs present him with proposals on Wednesday that go a long way toward that outcome in a make or break meeting at the White House. He has also threatened to slap tariffs on imported cars, trucks and auto parts, potentially targeting imports that past year totaled $335 billion.

Recently, Trump has threatened a 25% tariff on European autos, a warning that seems to have been staved off. As the dispute escalates, China and other importers have slapped tariffs on incoming shipments of USA soybeans, dairy, meat, produce, and liquor.

Trump declared it a "very big day for free and fair trade" with Juncker by his side. But, they are expecting us to offset the cost of the (50 percent) tariff. One program will provide funds to farmers producing commodities directly impacted by retaliatory tariffs, including soybeans, corn, and cotton. "The farm economy can not take this and we need to get back to work and increase these exports". Finally, the Trade Promotion Program will assist in developing new export markets on behalf of growers.

Casey Guernsey, a former Missouri state legislator and a spokesman for Americans for Farmers and Families, urged Mr. Trump to "listen to America's rural families and take immediate steps to resolve these trade disputes and find a middle ground that does not punish the agricultural sector".

WASHINGTON-President Donald Trump slammed critics of his trade policies on Wednesday, warning they are undermining his negotiating position while American farmers are being "ripped off".

"I know that Trump's tariffs targeting China will have some effect, but we're not anxious at all, since we're producing foreign flags every single day", she said. John Kennedy, R-La. "You've got to treat everybody the same".

"Our farmers have been in nonstop, saying they want trade, not aid, and now they're being put on welfare", Sen. "I will never stop fighting for Iowa families affected by this trade war." . They are not there to offset bad policy. "The end result will be worth it!"

On Tuesday, Trump declared on Twitter that "tariffs are the greatest!" In another tweet, Trump claimed that "Negotiations are going really well, be cool". The program is expected to start taking effect around Labor Day in the United States on September 3.

It will rely on the Department of Agriculture's authority to stabilize the farm economy by buying excess supply. They said they believed that there are few signs talks among senior officials could be resumed soon.

And the general reaction from farmers, many of whom would benefit from the payments, is that it's a short-term fix that won't work in the long run.

The plan will take effect around Labor Day, with the $12 billion total "calculated to match the estimated $11 billion of economic damage that retaliatory tariffs will inflict on USA farmers", officials told The Washington Post.
