Trump commends aid payment to farmers

United States President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Sunday to welcome the second round of trade aid to farmers, attributing the payment to tariffs on Chinese imports.

"Our great Farmers will receive another major round of 'cash,' compliments of China Tariffs, prior to Thanksgiving. The smaller farms and farmers will be big beneficiaries. In the meantime, and as you may have noticed, China is starting to buy big again. Japan deal DONE. Enjoy!" Trump tweeted.

The US Department of Agriculture stated on Friday it will begin making the second part of a three-tranche $16 billion aid package announced in May to compensate farmers for the costs of the trade war between Washington and Beijing.
