Me President Trump criticizing China today for targeting the mid west with retaliatory tariffs and during a roundtable discussion in Iowa he tried easing fears of farmers suffering after the president impose tariffs on some foreign imports but. We just opened up Europe few farmers you're not going to be too angry with Trump. I can tell you but there was no deal reached with the European Union just an.

And that might make Wall Street happy Andy but how did that play. With the farmers So far not great Neal he says you're. Not going to be, with Trump but a lot of them are in fact.

Know that is a very good question I, don't I don't, know the answer that it doesn't seem, that the president really Listens too much advice at all when it comes to doing these things because. Very often he'll make a decision or he'll tweet these things out in the White House his staff kind of scrambles to provide a justification for it when, it usually is supposed to be the other way. Around but. Something had to happen because last week the European Commission was a foe Well again that's wide bar heads are spinning I mean a.
