Trump administration's plan is aimed at protecting US farmers affected by tit-for-tat tariffs targeting dairy, soy and pork farmers.

    The Trump Administration has announced a multi-billion dollar aid package for US farmers.

    It is being seen as an admission that Americans are being hurt by the president's protectionist policies.

    The money is aimed at shielding farmers from US President Donald Trump's disputes with China and other leading trading partners.
