Last week we shared details of a just-announced partial trade agreement with China. This week, some details of that agreement, including to what extent there is an agreement, were questioned on both sides of the Pacific. Pro Farmer Policy Analyst Jim Wiesemeyer details what we do and don't know about the phase 1 agreement in this week's DC Signal to Noise Podcast. Wiesemeyer and Farm Journal News Director John Herath also reveal some puzzling questions in pork export numbers and speculate on how the latest spat between President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi might impact passage of USMCA.
