Farm organizations send trade letter to Trump

On May 31, 2018, U.S. Wheat, the National Association of Wheat Growers and 16 other U.S. agricultural organizations sent a letter to President Trump expressing hope that he will “prioritize negotiations with China to resolve many longstanding obstacles to U.S. agricultural exports while avoiding mutually destructive tariffs. In the letter, the organizations agree that there are certainly major problems in the U.S. trade relationship with China, and they stated that the Trump Administration has “rightfully identified many unfair trading practices by China that harm the U.S. economy.” The groups want to see a “major recalibration of our trade relationship with China” that would result in U.S. producers “receiving the full benefits of China’s accession to the World Trade Organization.” Read U.S Wheat’s release highlighting the letter here.
