The Trump administration announced last week that it will provide $12 billion in aid to farmers negatively impacted by his administration’s tariffs. U.S. farmers exporting their products to China and other nations have seen a loss of business after the cost of U.S. agriculture imports have risen.

Governor John Kasich criticized Trump’s plan to bailout farmers impacted by the White House’s tariffs. He said it’s “terrible, terrible policy,” because the bailout adds to the nation’s deficit.

After the White House announced more tariffs, China responded with proposed tariffs on U.S. imports in 106 categories including soybeans, a multi-billion dollar industry in Ohio.
