Bullet is the 22 Democrat to join the race he tolling events today in Montana before flying to New York or hold talks with ABC news who keep an eye out for that interview. Mark Beaubien Helen which is. Very very nice place so sticky things up there. I'm now but I've heard about it but he's taken big that was second in information and one out to the big story the escalating trade war with China driving down stocks and fueling new fears with neither side backing down. The Dow tumbled Monday as China fired back would new tariffs president drop overnight offered a new timeline while insisting the US is and a strong position. Meanwhile farmers are hurting and soon everyone shopping cart will be killed or more expensive ABC's Trevor all has the details from Washington good morning Trevor. Kenneth good morning today good morning to you as well he had spent kind of tough stretch sense China finally announce those. Counter measures retaliating against the US tariffs or. Put into place last week yesterday China announcing the terrorists of their own and it resulted in a pretty rough day in the markets losing. More than a trillion dollars it was the worst day for trading that we have seen in months but still as is this thing as this is now unfolding the president says. This is a very positive step he says that he loves where we are in he's kind of provided. A bit of a timeline for this trade war with China he says to take three or four weeks or so before will be able to measure whether or not these opening tariffs have been. Successful. And that will be able to move on from there he is looking forward to IG twenty meeting that's happening in Japan in late June where he will likely be face to face with China's president chief. And they can maybe Hachette some of these trade talks there face to face. And Trevor Adair and some confusion. At the White House this is immediately seen before where the president says one thing and some of his advisors Rhodes on yeah coming different. It seems like it S economic advisor contradicted the president over the weekend about who's actually paying these tariffs president trucking saying China is gonna foot the bill. So let's remind everyone at just what these terrorists actually do. Right and that is important to note because the president does keep saying that China is going to be paying these billions of dollars in new tariffs but. That's not really how the tariffs work and his economic advisor Larry Kudlow admitted. That is not how works either what it is is basically. And extra tax after those goods are paid to be imported so it's not China paying to send their goods over to the US it's. American businesses the US importers. Buying these products from China and that having to paid extra tariffs on top of that which of course. It's possible that the American businesses could say it's not worth it to pay the tariffs and not by the Chinese products which could hurt China but as we know a lot of these businesses are counting on importing the Chinese products. That's gonna make their costs go up in as we know very well they. Businesses tend to pass on the cost to the consumer. And those products that you buy could very well get more expensive some businesses are already saying that they're having to raise their prices and a pro trade group. As announced an estimate that these tariffs are gonna cost the average family of 4767. Dollars a year so that's just from the US side of the tariffs. On the other side China has announced their own retaliatory. Tariffs on a lot of different product a lot of it is farming farmers are really going to be feeling the squeeze take for example. Soybean farmers China was a major importer of soybeans were hurt. That they would take as much as 60%. Of soybean crops there is now a 25%. Terror from China on importing soybeans over there farmers believe. It's possible that market may be done now 60%. Of that soybean market though so the president is. Announcing since that's promising to try to help out some farmers authorizing as much as fifteen billion dollars in a new bailout for farmers and echoes on top of twelve billion dollars that was authorized last year that was when the trade war first started to ramp up so kind of trying to provide a life raft but as we've said he's got this time one of three to four weeks before we get the next step. This trade war could go well into the future and the impacts are already starting to arrive. And Trevor those numbers can make your head spin that you're here to sort it all out for us thank you so the best thing.
