'It worries me': Farmers on tariff relief

Nebraska senators react to $12B plan to assist farmers affected by tariffs

Republican senators Tuesday condemned the Trump administration's $12 billion bailout plan for farmers hit by crippling tariffs on their goods.

Sen. Jerry Moran of Kansas says, "When the tariff war is over... how do we get those markets back?"

Farm groups generally have stood by Trump during the trade war although anxiety has begun to rise in farm country.

"The one thing we have learned from the last 18 months of Trump's gyrating trade policies is that whatever looks certain today is likely to be undermined tomorrow", Gavekal strategists said in a note.

Riley says at this point it's unclear how much - if any - of the aid will make it to Colorado. The US and European Union will "hold off on other tariffs" while negotiations proceed, Mr Juncker said.

Mourinho hoping for 2 more signings
Anthony Martial has been allowed to leave Manchester United's pre-season tour of the U.S. so he can attend the birth of his second child.

Trump crowed Tuesday that his latest threat had brought Europe to the negotiating table.

The US President's comments came after a meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker amid pressure in the US over the impact tariffs are having on the country's farmers after he unleashed a trade war.

Coming up: The US is also considering additional tariffs of more than $200bn on Chinese products, as well as duties on foreign cars and auto parts, which represent more than $300bn in annual trade.

"This will open markets for farmers and workers, increase investment, and lead to greater prosperity in both the United States and the European Union", said Trump. In Trump's maniacally nationalistic dreamscape, American industries might be getting killed by rotten trade deals; but in reality, the United States heavily subsidizes its domestic agriculture - in ways that give it an unfair advantage in the global ag trade - and America's allies have largely tolerated this arrangement. Remember, we are the "piggy bank" that's being robbed. Waukesha Metal Products, a manufacturer in Wisconsin, said several of its customers want the company to ship production to Mexico in order to lower material costs.

"About one in every three rows of soybeans we raise is exported to China they account for about 60% of the U.S. exports of soybeans are a big deal but pork has been greatly impacted as well by reduction in exports to China and through NAFTA to Mexico most of our meat and livestock products, dairy and beef as well, impacted a lot", Ag Expert Kent Thiesse added.

Spieth aims to retain British Open title but Woods lurks
The charge had the golf world on fire, and many dreaming of that 15th major finally arriving 10 years after his 2008 U.S. His eagle putt slid just by to the right, and he tapped in for a straightforward birdie, his sixth of the day.

PERDUE: We can borrow money via the Commodity Credit Corporation, a Depression-era program created to help farmers.

The actions "are a firm statement that other nations can not bully our agricultural producers to force the United States to cave in", Perdue said.

"This consistent and retaliatory taxing system called tariffs, is not the way to find prosperity for the state of Wisconsin", Rep. Steffen tells Action 2 News. As a result, German automaker Daimler, owner of Mercedes Benz, employs more than 22,000 in the U.S.

"It's going to hit every family farm, I think, going forward here unless this gets resolved", he said.

The statement said the meeting would have a "focus on improving transatlantic trade and forging a stronger economic partnership". He added, "This administration's tariffs and bailouts aren't going to make America great again, they're just going to make it 1929 again".

Trump targets Obama-era critics' security clearances
And if he chooses to do it for political reasons, I think that's a awful precedent, and it's a very sad commentary. A decision to strip a former official of a security clearance would prove a striking use of presidential power.

The president, who former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon last week said is "attracted" to strongman leaders, offered some advice on toughness to his trade skeptics: "No weakness!"
