AMERICAS FARMERS SCREWED BY TRUMP AND WEATHER
As America's agricultural commodity prices dropped further after Friday's tariff escalation on $200 billion of Chinese goods, Trump vowed to buy more domestic farm products for international humanitarian aid.
"These types of trade wars are a menace to everyone from the crews at Heathrow airport to a sheep station in New Zealand."
A markedly wet spring means the majority of America's cornfields still are not planted. After Friday, farmers begin losing yield every day their seeds are not in the ground.
