The Trade War

Begins next week, when Trump institutes a 25% tariff on steel, and 10% on aluminum.

China will react - and I don’t see it ending well for farmers.

Tick Tock....BONGx10!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: The Trade War

We've been in a trade war for a long time.  We're losing.

Re: The Trade War

And we're going to lose more.  There are other ways to negotiate, than saying, "I'm taking the ball and going home."

 

But, see, this so called president, doesn't work that way.  He's doing a good job at making America an isolationist country.  Sure - we can survive on our own.  Maybe.  But can you farmers survive with no exports....

 

I'll help you out.  I burn about 100 bushels of corn a year in my corn stove.   And, I'm willing to pay top price for good, clean, 12% corn.  I'll go up to $2.75 a bushel (cash) next fall.  But the price is only good for the next 2 weeks.  Because then I'm going to lower the bid - with the rest of America that wants (not needs) your corn.  Good luck....

PS....with the stock market getting hit again today, it looks like a lot of America doesn't think much of Trump's (about to be) trade war either.  America will lose, the way he's going about it now.  Farmers, will lose more..... Tick Tock....

We being someone other than "agriculture".

 

BTW, looks like the Soros/Hollywood Secret Society is tanking stocks to make Trump look bad.

Re: The Trade War

Your dear leader keeps telling you that BUT did you take notice of the link I posted the other day that talked of the report that even your dear leader signed showing how the USA is benefiting from trade with Canada NOT the other way around as he keeps saying?

 

I see articles on this steel and aluminum tariff saying it will increase your costs for many things AND it increases the incentive for business to manufacture outside your border because of cheaper metal.

 

Not sure your administration at this time has the abilities to look at the whole picture.

They have their 'beliefs' and then ignore the reality of the world around them.

Re: The Trade War

I think the USA and Canada should have completely free trade, the countries are similar enough.  You'll certainly get better dairy products without the protectionism of that industry.

Re: The Trade War

he is just blabbering to pander votes for the special election coming up in PA on 3/13.  It's an area he won by 20 points and can't afford to see it go blue as many have been doing lately. Once the election is over he will renege. Con men gotsta con.

Re: The Trade War

RoDger, I just know from personal experience what happens when the government starts a trade war.

We buy from other countries - WHY? BECAUSE THEY CAN MAKE IT CHEAPER, AND MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, BETTER!!!!

You think that we can tax our way into better trade deals worldwide? You’re goofy. And we will soon find out, that we need the other counties, MORE THAN THEY NEED US.

I’m glad I have what I need and want, probably for the rest of my life. And I really pity those just starting out. They are going to find it harder and harder to make ends meet, as consumer prices climb another 30% or so in the next / years. And you farmers are left holding a bad full of #2 corn, with no where to go with it.
