U.S. Ag Products Will See Tariff Disadvantage April 1

March 29, 2019 10:56 AM

Much of the trade focus has been on China. However, the United States agricultural industry could be at a significant tariff disadvantage starting April 1 and it has nothing to do with China.

Eleven Pacific Rim Countries went ahead with a deal without the United States, after the Trump Administration exited the agreement. That agreement is the updated Trans Pacific Partnership Deal called CPTPP. April 1 marks the date tariffs will start to drop for countries within the CPTPP agreement, not good news for U.S. agriculture.

AgDay national reporter Betsy Jibben has the story.

  No Sense from Bristol SD, is like other stooges who blindly follow the Phony, Counterfeit, Reneging, Lying Conman, Traitor/Trader Trump, and swallow all of his LIES! They reside in the Twilight Zone, as they live in some ideological Fantasy Land of falsehoods, misleading opinions, and absolute Lies! Ignorant of the facts, and truth! Such as this No Sense, U.S. companies/corporations, for the last 30 years went rushing over to China, and couldn't wait to open up business/production. No one forced them to leave this country of ours, and go to CHINA! Bogus, VOO DOO ECONOMIC Tax Laws/Policies from the 1980's made it so easy, and very profitable in doing so! Oh yeah, they were more than happy in throwing the U.S.A. under the bus for their GREED of BIG $$$ PROFITS! That was all there own doing as they couldn't wait to reap the BIG $$$ they intended to make as being in business/production in China. Dirt cheap labor, some forced labor, is what caught there eye! Further more China did not hold a gun on them, or force them as they willing signed, agreed to, gave away, and made any deal necessary to get to do business there. Traitors are what those companies/corporations are that did so! Nothing but traitors, selling us out for their own GREED! It's China, so you live by China's rules, and laws. Just as you live by our rules, and laws here. So now, we in the U.S. are being held hostage, to try to bail these unfit, greed filled companies/corporations out. They have already spilled, the technology. This is FACT! The problem is now, the Phony, Counterfeit, Reneging, Lying Conman, Traitor/Trader Trump has successfully alienated, and pissed on all of our best friends and allies. So we're left to fight a unwinnable trade war all by ourselves. Oh yeah, good luck with that deal! And while all of this crap is going on, the rest of our ag producing competitors in the world, step in and seize the markets that used to be ours! Hows that working for you NO SENSE? No Bull, Just Fact!!!

  Turning back will be a challenge now for USA AGRICULTURE PRODUCTION and surplus products. 2019 planting has begun and grain bins are full. If a farmer loan was approved for 2019 there were surely more collateral for the loan to be approved. HOPE THE FARMER SHIP DOESN'T SINK AND STAYS AFLOAT.

  U.S. production agriculture is in peril. No light at the end of the tunnel now. Could we see a 2 in front of the price of corn come harvest? It's starting to look like it's possible. With no stopping the illegal, unlawful RIN waivers, they are, and will continue. Thus market demand loss dictates lower priced corn, higher priced retail gasoline. Yeah, that all works out real good for making America Great Again, eh? Pork, Beef, and Poultry will now be hurt with this news now also. Perhaps this situation will also be so easy for the Phony, Counterfeit, Reneging, Lying Conman, Traitor/Trader Trump to wheel, and deal on this too? Good Luck with that! Just like he just loves Ethanol, and fully supports, and defends the RFS! Ruse, con job, just plain LIES! Remember, his strong suite in his business resume is many, yes many, BANKRUPTCIES! How long will his stooges follow him? Losers like company!
