The factory has turned out about 90,000 banners since March, said manager Yao Yuanyuan, an unusually large number for what is normally the low season, and Yao believed the China-U.S. trade war was the reason. "And President Trump is the first one to call them on that".

The bailout plan comes just as voters in several farm states are preparing to cast votes in the midterm elections. "As I travel the state I continue to hear Iowa farmers want more trade, not aid." .

Although some farmers - and some Republican lawmakers - insist they'd rather have "trade than aid", Perdue argued the tariffs would create a more fair global trading system, which would eventually benefit farmers in the long term. "We're trying to sort through a lot of the chaff to get down to the real heart of the issue to make this thing a little more equitable".

On Twitter, Trump said people "snipping at your heels during a negotiation" will only delay the process. But Trump tweeted Wednesday urged concerned parties to "be cool".

"This friction that we're having, as long as it results in lowering barriers. that's great, that is hopefully where we can end up with this".

On Tuesday, Perdue announced $12 billion for three new USDA programs during a conference call with reporters. The aid will include direct payments to farmers and ranchers, government purchases of some surplus commodities and helping to develop new export markets overseas.

A further hearing is scheduled to take place in late August on a newly proposed 10 per cent tariff on Chinese imports worth US$200 billion.

The trade partners responded with tariffs of their own, targeting a range of goods with a particular focus on agriculture. Trump promptly ordered a review of an additional $200 billion worth of Chinese goods to target for import duties.

Mark Martinson, who raises crops and cattle in north-central North Dakota and is president of the US Durum Growers Association, said the $12 billion figure "sounds huge" but there are many farmers in need. "We were being nice - until now!", he wrote.

Those affected economies have in turn targeted USA agricultural products, including soybeans, dairy, meat, produce and liquor. "But $12 billion payoff won't fix trade policy", the Kansas City Star editorialized.

At the hearing, trade industry representatives urged the USTR to reconsider what one witness called the "blunt instrument of tariffs", citing rising costs for U.S. customers and small businesses, as well as the prospect of harmful, retaliatory measures from China.

The president was meeting at the White House later Wednesday with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and other European officials as their trade dispute threatens to spread to automobile production. The upcoming talks are viewed by various experts as the last chance to avert a full-scale trade war between the United States and the European Union.

He added: "I appreciate the fact that they realize the farmers are being hurt by this, but this is not the right remedy". "Both the U.S. and the European Union drop all Tariffs, Barriers and Subsidies!" he wrote. But, they are expecting us to offset the cost of the (50 percent) tariff.

He wasn't the only member of Trump's party to vent after the administration pledged to provide up to $12 billion in aid for USA farmers to shield them from the effects of trade disputes cultivated by the White House itself.
