Capitol Report: Farm groups go on offensive against Trump’s tariffs | Democratic group will spend big in red states to take Senate

President Donald Trump pauses during remarks at the American Farm Bureau Federation convention in Nashville in January.

Politico reports farm groups are going on the offensive with a multimillion-dollar advertising and advocacy campaign against President Donald Trump’s tariffs after the administration rolled out a $12 billion bailout for farmers harmed by a mounting trade war.

The campaign’s launch comes as Trump is due to be in Iowa on Thursday, where he’s likely to reassure farmers growing increasingly anxious over trade retaliation that has targeted soybeans, pork and other major farm commodities, Politico said. The report says nonprofit group Farmers for Free Trade — which is backed by the American Farm Bureau Federation and the National Pork Producers Council — is investing $2.5 million in the four-month campaign.
