Trump: If Farmers Get Hit, They’ll Understand

Notable moment in President Trump’s remarks a few moments ago. If China enacts tariffs that harm US farmers, they’ll understand, he said. Because they’re “patriots.”

“When we do a deal with China – which probably we will, if we don’t they’ll have to pay pretty high taxes to do business with our country. That’s a possibility. But if we do a deal with China, if during the course of a negotiation they want to hit the farmers, because they think that hits me, I wouldn’t say that’s nice, but I tell you, our farmers are great patriots. These are great patriots. They understand that they’re doing this for the country. And we’ll make it up to them. In the end they’re going to be much stronger than they are right now.”
