Rural America and ag will play a huge role in the Treasury Secretary nominee’s decisions

China and climate change are the two top priorities for Treasury Secretary nominee Janet Yellen.

However, she says that she first wants to get pandemic relief to the American people and businesses.

During her hearing in the Senate Finance Committee, Senator Chuck Grassley from Iowa highlighted the importance of international trade for agriculture. He said the Biden administration should not overlook rural America.

Yellen commented on how China has been abusive and unfair, and said that she will fight back.
