US farmers face buyer’s remorse under Trump

Rural America helped Donald Trump win the US presidential election in part because of his promise to protect US farmers.

But since taking office, Trump has scrapped the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), that was expected to expand agricultural exports by $4bn a year.

He has also threatened to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Some people fear the president could make it harder to sell on a global stage at a time when they desperately need new customers.
