Hoeven Discusses China's Proposed Tariffs with Neil Cavuto on Fox Business
I discussed China's proposed tariffs with Neil Cavuto on Fox Business. Exports are a central piece of the ag economy, which is why we’re concerned by potential Chinese retaliation and proposed increased duties on U.S. products, especially agriculture commodities including soybeans, corn, wheat and beef. We’ve repeatedly stressed to the Administration that any changes to our trade policy need to result in better deals for the U.S. and prevent retaliatory measures that harm North Dakota industries, particularly agriculture. While negotiations on both U.S. and Chinese tariffs go forward in the coming months, we’ll continue pressing the Administration to find productive ways to improve trade relations with China and prevent these proposed tariffs from being enacted.
