US-China trade war: A soy bean farmer’s view – BBC News



US tariffs on $34bn (£18.2bn) of Chinese goods have come into effect, opening the way for an outright trade war between the two economic giants.

American farmers could be among those hardest hit by the tariffs, but many say they support President Trump and his brash approach to trade.

  1. I think America be counting it's days of glory cause that other country called China is only starting a fire.if you know what mean.power is on the horizon.

  2. To all the farmers, bend over and take your Trumping, may you suffer as the rest of America has to. I have no sympathy for you, tell us, who's picking your fields now that you threw out the Mexican workers?

  3. They've been unfairly treated? Visibly wealthy Whilst Chinese people live close to poverty working like slaves to make their iPhones?

  4. This will be the best thing 4 China – not having glyphosate contaminated ("Roundup ready") genetically modified soya bean.

  5. Hit China with total tariff. See what they do. Help the farmers with all the money we will save. See how Long China will last.

  6. guys remember. lisa simpson becomes president after trump, and trump destroys the US economy. just remember that

  7. BBC isn’t being objective as it’s been always. The war is no good to either side. I am Chinese. I am upset only because I bought stocks and I am losing money. Other than that I don’t give a shit. Politics are dangerous.

  8. We can use some of the money we make from a 25% tariff on cars entering the US, to help the US soy farmers. When the car companies have to pay 5,000 to 25000 per car just to bring them into the US and put them on their car lots to sell, we are gonna be raking in some righteous paper. All those millions of Mercedes, BMW's, and Jaguars that are selling for anywhere from 40,000 to 100,000, are gonna generate a lot of cash. 25% of 100,000 is 25,000 and there are a bunch of these cars entering the US. Once Mercedes brings them into the US and pays the 25% tariff to put them on their lots, there's no guarantee that people will pay the added cost if they pass it on to the consumer. Can they eat the 25% cost and still make a profit? Will they just move factories to the US and have them built here to avoid the tariff? I would say yes.

  9. Is it me? I noticed so many products in America contain soy. It's like in everything for some reason. Just something I noticed (could be wrong).

  10. Drop the tariffs on our soy beans, before somebody gets their as*es kicked. Our military is 3 times larger than China's

  11. china needs the soy , they just made it expensive for their people to buy that's all, use some brain people!

  12. Love Trump! These farmers understand what’s needed to rewrite the wrongs of the last few decades of Democrats and Republicans selling out the American people. Fuck free trade!

  13. Does anybody really think that China now getting its soy beans from Russia was just serendipitous. The sanctions weren't designed to screw over Trumps base, but designed to help Russia. This is global theater at its best.

  14. WHO WOULD TRADE 5 DOLLARS FOR 1 DOLLAR AND CHINA KNOWS THAT BARGAIN WASN'T GOING TO LAST FOREVER AND ANY COMPANY IN THE WORLD COULDN'T AFFORD TO KEEP GIVING OUT DEAL'S LIKE THAT AND IF THAT WAS THE CASE IT WOULD BE LIKE WALKING INTO AMERICAN BANK TRADING YOUR 1 DOLLAR FOR 5 DOLLARS THAT'S HOW INSANE TO LET ANY COUNTRY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF UNITED STATES IN THAT WAY AND NAFTA NEVER HELP UNITED STATES THAT'S WAS CREATED BY THE BUSH FAMILY THAT SOLD OUT THE UNITED STATES TALK ABOUT TREASON.

  15. Trump’s trade war was done so that Russia can now supply China and weakens our sanctions on Russia. Most everything Trump does has hurt America and helped Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, Israel, or his/his family’s private businesses in one way or another and the GOP does nothing to stop it. Wake up America before it’s too late!

  16. There is no single biggest customer to replace China. If it takes long time to find a solution and new producers have been created , all these farmers won't be able to regain their market. Pity all these farmers to be dragged into the trade war

  17. BBC crap, MAGA, Trump 2020.
    and guys dont eat soy, its a phytoestrogen source…unless your looking to reassign your gender that is 😉

  18. Yep all those Soy filled Liberal snowflake Government arse kissing Freaks won't be able to fill their implants fast enough

  19. Soy. The second worst poison of the 20th century right after genetic modification, closely followed by fluoride…
    Eat well, live longer.

  20. Trump has alot of businesses in the U.S. Im positive he will be able to hire a bunch of his voters when they lose their farms or job at a bourbon distillery or in sales it doesn't matter. Toilets at his resorts and hotels need to be cleaned so he can still brag about his unemployment rate etc. MAGA! He told us that N.K is getting rid of their nukes so that is a positive and Im sure that Kim is doing just that, hes a gentleman like Trump and wouldnt lie about something like that.

  21. Trump's not going to lose to Bob Mueller without a trade fight,
    "Nature abhors a vacuum." said Vladimir Putin with smug delight.
    The Russians are glad to fill the gap created by Trump's new trade war
    because the U.S. under Trump doesn't want to play nice anymore.

    Whether by accident or on purpose, Russia stands to gain from Trump's trade war. Nature abhors a vacuum and the empty space left by the U.S. losing trade deals will be filled by Russia with pleasure. Putin is happy to pick up new trade partners in China and the EU.

    Even Canada and Mexico may find new partners and skip the U.S., the tariffs are too punishing and harsh for our neighbors and allies. The only beneficiary of the U.S. being isolated from their allies Canada and Mexico will be Russia and China who will simply leave the U.S. out on their own while they trade with each other.

    Bernie Sanders suggested a well thought out rewording of the free trade pacts WTO and NAFTA with all nations involved given a fair voice. These free trade agreements need to be rewritten to include rights for all workers, indigenous people and environmental protections or they will continue to do more harm than good. Mr. Trump should work together with Sen. Sanders and come to some agreement for WTO/NAFTA revision instead of diving headfirst into a trade war with all the world's developed nations. Otherwise the U.S. will be left out in the cold, though Trump will stay warm in the White House his naïve supporters may shiver from lost jobs and homes.

  22. Time to phase out all trade with China and start making our own products in the USA like we used to. We need to remember that red China is a communist country and we may be fighting them someday. We shouldn't be trading with them and making them strong.

  23. Soybean milk price quadrupled in China 🇨🇳

    Let's see how long can Chinese losing protein in the process of the trade war.
