Trade Dominates the Conversation at #FPS19

Cindy Zimmerman

From China and Japan, to Canada and Mexico, trade dominated the conversation at the 2019 Farm Progress Show last week.

It was all President Trump talked about when he spoke with Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue on stage with Max Armstrong and Orion Samuelson.

“I can make a quick deal with China, and I can carry that deal into a tremendous amount of agriculture products. Immediately I would be a hero, I would easily win the election. And that would be that, but it would be the wrong deal.” said President Trump. “China targeted our farmers thinking they can get to me because they knew I loved the farmers.”
