04/05/2018 Congresswoman Kelly Condemns Trump's Trade War
04/05/2018 Facebook - "President Donald J. Trump is no friend of the American farmer and the escalating trade war with China highlights this point. My friends at the Illinois Farm Bureau agree with me that the "Trump tariffs" are negatively impacting "Illinois" and "Midwest" hog and soybean farmers. IFB's Vice President Brian Duncan discussed it with CNN. I will keep fighting every day for Illinois farmers (and Midwest farmers) and will continue working to expand opportunities for them to bring their products to market without burdensome foreign tariffs. Trump's misguided and ill-conceived trade war with China and other nations will have a massive and negative impact on Illinois and Midwest farmers and rural communities. In particular, two newly announced Chinese tariffs will dynamically impact Illinois pork producers and soybean growers. Illinois is home to more than 40,000 soybean growers and 2,000 pork producers. These new tariffs, which are a direct result of President Trump's flawed rhetoric and policies, will cripple farmers who are already struggling under record-low commodity prices. Instead of working to empower and grow rural communities and farming families, the President's policies are at risk of killing their livelihood and ending Illinois' rich family farming tradition."
