FEED•LOT August 2018 23 USDA Assists Farmers Impacted by Unjustified Retaliation U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue today announced that the U.S. Department of Ag - riculture (USDA) will take sev- eral actions to assist farmers in response to trade damage from unjustified retaliation. President Trump directed Secretary Perdue to craft a short-term relief strategy to protect agricultural producers while the Administration works on free, fair, and reciprocal trade deals to open more markets in the long run to help American farmers com- pete globally. Specifically, USDA will authorize up to $12 billion in programs, which is in line with the estimated $11 billion impact of the unjustified retaliatory tariffs on U.S. agricultural goods. These programs will assist agricultural producers to meet the costs of disrupted markets. "This is a short-term solution to allow President Trump time to work on long-term trade deals to benefit agriculture and the entire U.S. economy," Secretary Perdue said. "The President promised to have the back of every American farmer and rancher, and he knows the importance of keeping our rural economy strong. Unfortunately, America's hard-working agricul- tural producers have been treated unfairly by China's illegal trading practices and have taken a dispro- portionate hit when it comes to illegal retaliatory tariffs. USDA will not stand by while our hard-work- ing agricultural producers bear the brunt of unfriendly tariffs enacted by foreign nations. The programs we are announcing today help ensure our nation's agriculture continues to feed the world and innovate to meet the demand."
