...According to a recent report, farmers impacted by previous trade agreements with China are looking ahead to a better deal and increased profits in 2020.

...Despite the overall hit, U.S. farmers have remained optimistic.

..."We knew as soon as the trade war escalated and the price of soybeans dropped so bad, that we were in trouble," explained Illinois soybean farmer John Kiefner.

...President Trump is expected to ask China to purchase around $50 billion in U.S. agricultural goods, which would be a huge boost for U.S. farmers.
