Trump is meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker (zhahn-KLOHD' YUN'-kur) on Wednesday.

Stephen Kirchner, from the University of Sydney's United States Studies Centre said that the $14 billion soybean industry is one of the hardest hit U.S. agricultural exports, after China slapped a 25 per cent tariff on all oilseeds.

"The administration must develop a support mechanism that will mitigate the significant damage that is being inflicted upon our most vital worldwide markets for years to come", he said in a statement.

European leaders are trying to talk Trump out of imposing tariffs on imported cars and auto parts, anxious it would hurt both economies.

The fear is that Trump will next impose tariffs on European Union vehicle exports, escalating the dispute.

"The best relief for the president's trade war would be ending the trade war".

The president is meeting with European officials on Wednesday at the White House.

The administration this week announced $12 billion aid for farmers amid fallout from Trump's tariffs.

Unilateral Sanctions on Iran in Violation of Nuclear Deal: Russia
Israel is eager to obtain guarantees that Iranian forces and allied groups, such as Hezbollah, are kept away from the Golan. Netanyahu said the Russian-Israeli talks enable to increase the security and trust level in the Middle East region.

However, some farm-state Republicans quickly dismissed the plan, declaring Tuesday that farmers want markets for their crops, not payoffs for lost sales and lower prices.

Trump did ask about the confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, McConnell said. "I don't think this will cover us for a very long time - and it might not even buy me a tank of diesel".

The European Commission's trade commissioner, Cecilia Malmstrom, said she was drawing up a $20 billion list of USA goods to hit with retaliatory duties should Washington impose tariffs on imported cares.

But Australia's National Farmer's Federation (NFF) President Tony Maher said it is a blow to drought-stricken farmers in this country. But, Xi said, it should not be discarded "as long as it is rule-based, aims to be equitable and pursues win-win outcomes as its goals".

President Trump's tariff threats against China, Canada, Mexico and the European Union prompted immediate threats of retaliation.

Administration officials said the aid will ease the pain farmers have felt as America's trading partners slapped tariffs on agricultural exports in response to the Trump administration's tariffs on steel and aluminum.

China is the biggest buyer of USA soybeans, importing more than $12.4 billion worth of the oil seed in 2017, according to the Peterson Institute for International Economics.

Kasich says that will only compound tariff damage.

Trump Denies Wrongdoing, Says Michael Cohen's Tape 'Perhaps Illegal'
McDougal has said she began a almost year-long affair with Trump in 2006 shortly after his wife, Melania, gave birth. This was a possible reference to an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on the office of Mr Cohen in April.

"For our farmers to be successful, we need to grow, not shrink, our markets, and I urge President Trump to engage directly with China's President Xi Jinping and negotiate an agreement before it is too late for our farmers", Cramer said in prepared remarks.

"This trade war is cutting the legs out from under farmers and White House's "plan" is to spend $12 billion on gold crutches", Sen. In addition, the government will work to open new markets. He wrote: "Negotiations are going really well, be cool". The end result will be worth it!'

"We are just kind of being played", said Tom Giessel, who was cultivating his fields when he stopped his tractor to take a cell phone call from a reporter seeking his reaction to the plan. We were being nice - until now!

Mr. Trump is also scheduled to meet with lawmakers on Wednesday to discuss his administration's proposed plan to offer $12 billion in aid to farmers hardest hit by retaliatory tariffs imposed by USA trading partners.

The bailout plan comes just as voters in several farm states are preparing to cast votes in the midterm elections.

"The President promised to have the back of every American farmer and rancher, and he knows the importance of keeping our rural economy strong".

While the U.S. claims the retaliation is "illegal", the Trump administration has acknowledged it is doing damage to American farmers, and on announced it will provide up to $12 billion in aid to farmers hurt by trade tariffs.

The aid program will go into effect on September 4, right after Labor Day.
