American agriculture export fears

Tags: , ,


Since winning the presidential election, Donald Trump’s anti-trade tone has moderated, but not completely faded.

Farmers and ranchers, remain wary, because 20 percent of all U.S. farm production is exported.

In 2015, U.S. agriculture exported $133 billion of bulk commodities and food around the world. American agriculture exports topped $150 billion in 2014, which was a record.)

Trump’s toughest stance is towards deals which involve the biggest importers — Canada and Mexico, China, and the European Union, or EU. These four customers — Canada, China, Mexico, and the EU — imported, respectively, $21 billion, $20 billion, $18 billion, and $12 billion of U.S. agriculture exports in 2015.

That’s a staggering 53 percent of all American farm and ranch goods which are exported. These four importers now being targeted by the incoming Trump White House because of what he calls “the worst trade deal ever,” NAFTA, and two other, all-but-dead regional deals, T-TIP and TPP, which he says are “terrible.”
