President Trump promises additional trade aid to farmers if needed


President Trump tweeted Friday implying another round of China trade aid could be on the way for farmers.

USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue told the audience at the USDA Ag Outlook Forum in Washington on Thursday that a third Market Facilitation Program payment was unlikely.

“The market will handle...the pricing of commodities going forward,” Perdue told reporters at the conference.

Perdue also mentioned the government might reconsider if there was an unexpected disruption in global trade flows.
