Fred Hubbell on Free Trade

 

 


Farmers are on the edge financially because of trade war

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Fred Hubbell called out Gov. Kim Reynolds for not taking a more aggressive public stance on behalf of Iowa farmers and rural interests that are being hurt by President Trump's trade war with China. Instead of rallying for farmers, Hubbell said at the State Fair, the governor has been "toeing the party line" in the trade dispute.

Hubbell said many Iowa farmers, implement dealers, suppliers and people reliant on agriculture are "on the edge" financially because of the effects of the trade war. Hubbell said, and that should have been the time for Reynolds to start discussing with President Trump how harmful a trade war would be for Iowa farmers. "They're the ones who usually receive the brunt of it," Hubbell said.

"Our governor didn't try to stop that and once it started she basically has been toeing the party line. Chuck Grassley's been a lot harder on this whole Trump and tariff war issue and he's right," Hubbell told reporters.
