I’m of course frustrated at the effects of some of the Chin

inese-imposed tariffs on our exporters – that’s a huge problem first for our growers, and companies in ou

r aerospace supply chain, and definitely our fish and seafood – they’ve been affected by Chinese tariffs,” said Habib.

With the Trump administration gradually imposing 25 percent tariffs

on $250 billion worth of Chinese imports over the past year, China has already retaliated with t

ariffs on $110 billion worth of US products, and has planned a tariff hike on $60 billion worth of US goods on June 1.

“Because of the tariff discussion going on in Washi

ngton DC, a lot of the farm community is being hurt,” said Bob Holde

n, former Missouri governor who co-founded the United States Heartland China Association.
