Trump Administration Offering $12B in Aid to Farmers

Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue calls it a "short-term solution".

WASHINGTON -- The Trump administration says it will give up to 12-billion-dollars in aid to farmers affected by tariffs. 

Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said Tuesday the emergency aid package will use existing funding to mitigate the estimated $11 billion impact of "illegal tariffs" other countries have imposed on US agriculture exports. 

Calling it a short-term solution, Secretary Perdue said the Trump administration was working on long-term trade deals. 

The aid package will not need congressional approval.
