A recent survey conducted by Iowa State University has found that farmers in Iowa, Minnesota and Illinois support President Trump’s tariffs against China. According to the study, nearly 60 percent of respondents in those states expressed support for the ongoing trade war.
Although the heightened trade tension between Washington and Beijing has resulted in a near $10 billion decrease in U.S. agricultural exports to China, domestic farm exports have continued to rise. This suggests other countries have started buying products that China has dropped.
