In Iowa, one out of every five jobs is affected by trade. During Senator Ernst’s 99 County Tour stops over the past two weeks, she heard from farmers and manufacturers across Iowa who are facing challenges due to the retaliatory tariffs. While many commended the president for leading the fight for fair trade deals for farmers, they need to see agreements reached quickly, particularly the USMCA.
