South Dakota Senator John Thune says President Trump wants to organize the first phase of a U.S. and China trade agreement soon. “This will include a lot of changes to benefit agriculture. China, at least in this part of the deal, found their way to add provisions to make things easier to get markets back in places like the Dakotas,” says Thune. “I’m hopeful that deal, at least in phase one, will open the door for additional negotiations for a more fulsome agreement to address structural challenges in terms of our trading relationship with China.”
