WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue acknowledged that American farmers are being hurt by President Donald Trump’s trade war with China, according to an interview broadcast on Tuesday.

“I think they are one of the casualties with trade disruption, yes,” Perdue told CNN. “We knew going in that when you flew the penalty flag on China, the retaliation, if it came, would be against the farmer.”
