Ohio’s senior U.S. Senator, Sherrod Brown, is critical of President Trump’s tariffs. Brown has advocated for tariffs against China in the past and says he doesn’t have problems with the idea. But Brown does have a problem with the way these tariffs have been put into place.

U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) visited the Ohio State Fair to mingle with hundreds of farmers from around the state as news spread that President Donald Trump was moving forward with plans to increase tariffs on Chinese imports.

Ohio hog farmers are reacting to the news that China is planning to attach a tariff on U.S. pork exports. That’s in response to the U.S. proposed tariff on Chinese steel. Farmers say this is a move that has an immediate effect.
