Sen. Pat Roberts, said he’d rather have open trade for farmers and said he hopes Trump
is trying to fix the situation. Sen. Jeff Flake echoed similar sentiments,

steel and aluminum tariffs, and China has responded to some additional, targeted taxes. President Donald Trump stood by his tariffs
on Tuesday. “They don’t want to have those tariffs put
on them.” “They’re all coming to see us. And the farmers will be the biggest beneficiary. Watch.”
