China's planned tariffs trigger US pork farm crisis

American pork farmers feel the pinch as pork prices are driven down.

    Pork farmers in the United States are beginning to feel the impact of a new 25 percent tariff on their products that has been proposed by China.

    It has driven American pork prices down.

    The new tariffs were sparked by US President Donald Trump's plan to impose duties on $60bn worth of Chinese goods, including steel.
