United States President Donald J. Trump alongside Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced on Sunday the framework for a massive trade deal between the two countries. While nothing has been signed yet, the potential agreement could bolster both economies by billions.
"Weve been working on a deal with Japan for a long time. And weve agreed in principle," President Trump told the press at the G7 Summit.
"We successfully reached consensus with regard to the core elements related to agricultural and industrial trade," Abe told the media via a translator. "We still have some remaining work that has to be done at the working level."
The deal will primarily benefit American farmers.
"With regard to the potential purchase of American corn, in Japan, we are now experiencing insect pests on some agricultural products, Abe added. "And there is a need for us to buy some of the agricultural products."
"This is a tremendous deal for the United States. It's a really tremendous deal for our farmers," President Trump added.
Deputy Assistant to the President and Principal Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley tweeted, "The President will always stand up for our great farmers and ranchers!"
Thank you, to all the Japanese deciders.
I think that is where most of the plastic in the ocean is flowing out of as well. They need to learn to burn the stuff for power.
A farmer just sent me 50 ears of corn ,fresh picked from the night before.I told him about this.
