WASHINGTON, D.C.-Congressman Marshall expresses his disappointment with China’s retaliatory threats in response to the U.S. government’s section 201, 232 and 301 trade cases.
“Farmers and ranchers are already facing decade low incomes,” Rep. Marshall said.“Now more than ever this Administration and Congress should be focused on opening new markets for U.S. products, rather than taking unilateral actions that cause more harm than good.”
“Within the last two months – Kansas’ top six ag products: beef, corn, soybeans, wheat, sorghum, and pork have all been targeted by the Chinese in retaliation to the U.S. government’s section 201, 232 and 301 trade cases.”
“There is no disagreement, we must address China’s predatory industrial policies, but our producers can’t be expected to bear the brunt of this trade war. We must find proactive trade deals that recognize the benefits of free and open trade while penalizing the bad actors that abuse it.”
