China Targets US Agriculture Exports

China Targets US Agriculture Exports

(NewsReady.com) – The US-China trade war seemed to de-escalate slightly towards the end of 2019. Even still, the Communist country has been primarily looking out for its own interests, making it an even less reliable trade partner than it’s proven to be during the global pandemic. According to new reports, China has stopped purchasing our agricultural and meat products.

This was done in response to President Donald Trump’s condemnation of China’s treatment towards Hong Kong. At face value this is true, but this cessation of importing US goods seems to have been a work in progress. At least in the case of soybeans, China has been importing more of this crop from other countries.

A trade deal was signed in mid-January to tone down tariffs and for the Chinese government to buy $32 billion in American agricultural products. This recent decision could violate that agreement. More should be coming out regarding this situation soon as tensions rise between Hong Kong, China, and the US.

  1. If you eat the right vegetarian diet you can get the right amount of protein. Not sure what you mean by “it” but you have to fact check this stuff. The mainstream media is controlled by the CIA, although five or six people own it, CIA controls the narrative. I still sit back and wonder what happened to America. How did we get so CORRUPT? Both democrats and republicans guilty as charged. Once they took the Pledge of Allegiance (God) out of school we started down a slippery slope that I am not sure we can climb back up. The Government has dummied down our kids. I still remember a ten o’clock news back in 2018 during confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh. They asked the twenty somethings how many justices sit on the Supreme Court. Half of them didn’t know. Does anybody know what is in the first amendment?? DISGUSTING. Then we get everything we deserve.

  2. China is not the only country America exports to, so, let them starve by stopping trading, besides, America can use the homegrown products…

    • Did you know that China owns farmland right her in the good ole USA. The food being produced on that land is being sent to China. O’bama, such a great president (NOT) let china buy this farm land. On top of that NASA(Never A Straight Answer) has been manipulating the weather to make sure American farms fail–flood, below normal temperatures to destroy crops. Didn’t know that? You will soon find out around September when we start seeing real food shortages.

  3. AMEN BUY AMERICAN!!? IF IT DOESN’T SAY USA MADE OR MADE IN USA DON’T BUY IT UNLESS IT’S AN ALLIES WITH US IN WORLD TRADE COMMISSION!!?

  4. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  5. if we did not use the products we do to grow our crops we would not have to worry about exporting any of them because we would not have enough to feed our own people

  6. We do not need China, we should be in the political loop to find out what counties would love to show their country skills by partnering with them and talking with both sides to make sure all are being compensated fairly. We have been ripped off so badly from China
    and there a one way country, my way or no way. They eat weird and terrible animals including our domestic dogs which by the way they will be having a dog market soon where all the merchants come out to check out hundreds of beautiful dogs and they select as many as they want then they torch them right on the spot alive then the horrific methods they use are terrible cruel, mean and horrifying. I will stop there, so do we really want to deal with China, we have over and over gotten viruses from their country also we need to be very, very cautious what animals are brought out from China to the USA. Diseases can transmit in most animals but it is not their fault, because if they could speak they would rather be where they should be in the wild and not with malicious people. Let’s get on track, stay on track and go in the right direction for the USA.

    • If not for America, China would still be in the stone age, stopping trade just might put them back there, but, China is preparing for war because they need more agricultural produce and rare earth metals, this is why they are in Africa and South America. …….

    • I don’t buy anything from Smithfield because China owns it if I know it comes from them I do not buy .we need to buy only what is made in USA as we do the same thing with dog food if it doesn’t say made in USA I don’t give it to my dog

  7. Let the people in China stave and keep them out of the USA. We have given them to much money and we don’t need their products. We need to send Nancy Pelosi to China with a one way ticket

    • 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    • Yahoo I will buy the plane ticket. Can we send George Soros with her? I am sure they will have plenty to talk!!!

  8. Our administration, all of them, not just the Trump administration, seems unaware of the fact that the reason our farmers and ranchers have to sell into a Chinese market is because our toxic approaches to farming and ranching prevent other countries from purchasing our produce and meats. If we banned the same chemicals and processes that Europe, Canada, Australia, and other nations do, we could sell to them. For some reason, the FDA and EPA are either unaware of this, or don’t care.

    • Stop buying all made in China products and support Americans and companies here bye only buying Made In America and I don’t mean assembled in America although that’s better than nothing being made hear at all but let’s start bringing companies back over from there and are jobs as well if we don’t bye it from there We will force American companies to realize we don’t want it from there and they’ll have to bring the jobs back her .We need to be an independent country look what happened during this pandemic we couldn’t even supply our selfs with the equipment needed to protect our selfs we had to depend on the Chinese who don’t even like us so why buy there shitty made products that don’t last let’s stop this now

    • Excellent reply/comment. Nailed it! Just w h o is telling farmers etal to grow crops with dangerous chemicals?

    • They don’t care. GMO seems to a topic for awhile. I think by the time we really figured out what that really meant it was too late. Besides that fits right in with the Democrats agenda. They want to destroy America and they have done a fairly good job at it. Looters being paid by FBI narcotics money and not to mention George Soros fine contributions. Then we have Bill Gates who wants all to be vaccinated so he can depopulate the world. Then we have this scamdemic going on. It just goes on and on. Russia, China and Iran see how weak we are and will probably come in for the kill soon. A bunch of vultures waiting to pounce.

  9. Trump seems not to have realized that there other countries than the US that do and can grow corn, soybeans, cotton and other major US crops that China had been buying in increasing quantities for years, including Brazil whose production had been watched
    closely by US farmers and ag industries and influenced prices and trading of these crops and livestock and products, when he began setting up and increasing import tariffs which China could not ignore. Trump has also badly stirred up other industries and trade here and abroad, resulting in major problems, partly it appears out of pique, but also apparently because of ignorance and failure o think such things through. He has gained political support of many US workers through increased employment in industries “brought back home”.

    • I think President Trump is doing what needs to be done, whether it stirs things up in a bad way, it still must be done. The fact that employment has even increased shows that this great leader is doing everything right. Let’s pray for this great leader and his family.

    • Yes, I do believe sometimes he doesn’t think things through thoroughly, relying on incompetent people, i.e., Navarro, Lighthizer etc.

  10. NO protein replaces meat. That’s why the economic slaves in China eat everything from bats to snakes to vermin. Soybeans are not fit for consumption unless fermented, which is the way the Japanese consume It. China is not in the driver’s seat on this: they know it, the Deep State knows it and the worldwide money changers know it! That’s why they are trying so hard to get rid of Trump but that is a useless attempt. That failed model is gone now! MAGA!

    • 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  11. WHY is “it” always annonymous sources who pass the “stuff” along to “news” outlets? China had to destroy practically all their pigs due to swine flu & were looking to USA for replacements and apparently Chinese people eat a lot of “strange” things, pork not being one of them.As for soybeans, miso & tofu come from them so this protein could replace meat.So just WHERE did this “info” come from?
