White House Announces $12 Billion in Emergency Aid to Farmers

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced a $12 billion emergency aid package for farmers caught in the middle of the U.S.’s trade war with other countries.

Farmers say President Donald Trump’s tariffs on imports from foreign buyers has led to the countries retaliating against U.S. pork, soybean and beef producers, among other farmers.

Secretary Sonny Perdue released a statement that reads in part, “America’s hard-working agricultural producers have been treated unfairly by China’s illegal trading practices and have taken a disproportionate hit when it comes illegal retaliatory tariffs...The programs we are announcing today help ensure our nation’s agriculture continues to feed the world and innovate to meet the demand.”
