The trade war is putting significant economic pressure on farmers. Helping bolster farmers’ bottom lines will help them ride out the trade war either until new trade agreements are made, or they are able to adjust their financial planning to account for the new tariffs.
The administration has already announced $12 billion in tariffs to help mitigate the trade war’s impact on farmers. Additionally, there may be World Trade Organization-related restrictions on aid to farmers, and some farmers themselves are skeptical about relying on government aid.
