On Monday, China retaliated against President Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs with a few of their own.
 
The Chinese government put in place a 25 percent tariff on pork products and a 15 percent tariff on agricultural products such as fruit and wine. After the White House announced more tariffs, China responded with proposed tariffs on U.S. imports in 106 categories including soybeans, a multi-billion dollar industry in Ohio.

 
Join us today as we discuss the trade tensions between the US and China and what that could mean for Ohio residents.
