The ongoing economic situation is known to have hurt most US farmers and manufacturers, many of whom are supporters of President Donald Trump.
Despite criticism of the Korea-China trade war, the world's two largest economies have yet to find a common way to rebalance their economic interests and end diplomatic action.
Trump's optimistic stance on China is aimed at conservative voter satisfaction, but the trade war has hit the middle class consumers and farmers in opposition.
His trade wars pose serious financial risks to potential voters, while Trump continues to call his investigation into job protection in the United States by diverting US exports from foreign exporters.
According to the US Department of Commerce, US economic growth slowed in the second quarter as gross domestic product was small but fell significantly.
In a presidential election last week in Warren County, Iowa, former President Governor Joe Biden, one of Democratic president's best hopes, said, "We are crushing American farmers.
Biden asked, "This week, should farmers across the country face the possibility of losing everything and losing their farms because of this tariff?"
After Trump imposed high tariffs on Chinese imports, Beijing also raised tariffs on US imports. As a result, US farmers are trying to sell their crops to Chinese buyers.
Agriculture is not the only area affected by trade wars. US manufacturing is also affected. The two sides recently cast nets of $ 75 billion in new tariffs by casting nets for a variety of products, from electronics to clothing.
Disappointed by the economic downturn, some members of Trump have recently questioned the need to move downward.
Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Pat Toomey is one of Republican critics. In the 2016 presidential election, Trump won the Toomey state, which was mainly a blue state since the 1980s, but the victory was not thin.
Toomey pointed out in a recent speech that Pennsylvania manufacturers are struggling to compete because Trump's tariffs reduce purchasing power for parts that are particularly needed abroad.
"Tariff is painful and double-edged sword."
"That's right. It's a problem for China, but it's also a problem for us. The Republican Senator added that "it may still be worth it."
Trump did not show mercy in his forgery. Trump told Fox News Radio, “ Pat Toomey said, “ Reach out in China.
The president's trade war is a dangerous political bet and damages farmers and manufacturers across the country, but still resonates in much of a conservative base.
Senator Chuck Grassley, chair of the Senate Finance Committee, supports the trade war. Although representing Iowa, when farmers struggled with the unfriendly Chinese market, farmers pointed out the hopeful Biden's visit.
Biden was a fierce year for farmers with Thursday's weather, droughts, trade negotiations and low prices.
But the Republican senator said his constituencies did not reach political trump. "I voted for Trump but I'm done with it now," he said.
