China Announces Decision to No Longer Buy US Agricultural Products.

China’s decision to completely stop purchasing American agricultural products was made on August 6 by the Chinese Commerce Ministry.

It is specifically in response to president Trump’s recent decision to institute a 10 percent tariff on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods.

As well as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s recent labelling of China as a “currency manipulator.”.

The move to halt importation can also be seen as a political tactic, as Trump draws a large portion of his support from rural America.

China’s announcement that it will not buy any agricultural products from the United States is a body blow to thousands of farmers and ranchers who are already struggling to get by, Zippy Duvall, President of the American Farm Bureau Federation, via statement .

China has been the largest importer of American soybeans and the top-three importer of pork.

.

Overall, they are the fourth-largest importer of American agricultural products, having spent $9.1 billion in 2018.
