American Soybean Association President Davie Stephens said on Tuesday.

President Donald Trump threatened in a tweet on Sunday to increase tariffs.

Stephens, a grower from Clinton, Kentucky, said that US farmers are in a tough situation, and with depressed prices

ayers, not Chinese taxpayers, who will pay the price — thanks to higher prices and fewer job opportunities.
