On Tuesday, President Trump coined himself “the tariff man.” According to Tyson Redpath, senior vice president of The Russell Group, it’s part of “the president’s posture”.

Redpath says there was a priority placed on achieving deals with Canada and Mexico ahead of China, and that was reflected in the weekend G-20 Summit. He also comments on the status of the USDA payment plan for farmers.
