President Trump discussed trade issues in his speech in southwest Iowa on Tuesday. “We’re reversing decades of failed trade policies, opening up new markets, and fighting to give our farmers the fair and level playing field they deserve,” Trump said. “You’ve never had a fair playing field, for the last 15 to 20 years. You were taken advantage of by stupidity, by incompetence, by people that didn’t care. You were really treated very badly—but you’re not being treated badly anymore.” Trump talked about standing up to “China’s chronic trade abuses”.
