Farmer Reacts to China Tariffs

 

Reno County farmer Jim French reacted to the overnight announcement by China that it will impose 25 percent import tariffs on $50 billion of U.S. products, including soybeans.  This is retaliation for $60 billion in tariffs on Chinese products over concerns about U.S. intellectual property. French said it was unfortunate that American farmers are quickly becoming casualties in this dispute.  He also voiced concerns about recent comments made by the Trump Administration regarding NAFTA.
