U.S. President Donald Trump accused China on Wednesday of targeting American farmers in a "vicious" way and using them as leverage to get concessions on trade a day after the administration announced a $12 billion farm aid package.

The president has repeatedly called the European Union - which includes numerous U.S.'s oldest and most committed allies - an unfair trading partner and even labeled it a "foe".

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., blasted the plan on Twitter. "While there is plenty of disagreement, nobody, be they farmer, rancher, fiscal conservative, wants the federal government to replace trade with aid".

The European Central Bank's has a price-stability mandate, and on Friday, declined to comment on a Trump tweet accusing the EU of currency manipulation.

Trump tweeted that China was specifically targeting USA farmers with retaliatory tariffs because "they know I love & respect" them.

He also and questioned if the government is going to continue to let "our farmers and country get ripped off". "China made $517 Billion on us a year ago".

'Negotiations are going really well, be cool.

"This friction that we're having, as long as it results in lowering barriers. that's great, that is hopefully where we can end up with this".

The aid program will go into effect on September 4, right after Labor Day.

Farmers have suffered from retaliatory tariffs on farm goods such as pork, beef, and soybeans following Trump's imposition of tariffs. The second second program will buy surplus products, including fruit, nuts, and dairy, and distribute them to food pantries and other programs.

The Trump administration announced it will provide $12 billion in emergency relief to ease the pain of American farmers slammed by Presi
USDA announces 3-prong approach to aid farmers

At a speech Tuesday, he asked farmers to not believe reports that a trade war is a bad thing.

Trump said the U.S. and European Union will set up an executive working group to work on trade and assess existing tariffs "to the betterment of both".

His administration has levied tariffs on $34 billion worth of goods from China.

His call for calm came hours after he told the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Kansas City to "just be a little patient' on trade and agriculture".

"We appreciate the president following through on his pledge that America's farmers won't bear the brunt of the economic losses generated by the current trade conflicts", Mulhern said. Trump promptly ordered a review of an additional $200 billion worth of Chinese goods to target for import duties. "We were being nice - until now!", he wrote.

Chinese diplomats and many diplomatic observers in the US also expressed frustration about the suspension of top-level communications, which have played an important role to steady US-China relations.

Of the total unjustified retaliatory tariffs imposed on the U.S., a disproportionate amount was targeted directly at American farmers, the Department of Agriculture said. Ben Sasse, a Republican, criticized what he called a bailout, and the administration's underlying trade policy.

"Trade war? Chinese retaliation to Trump tariffs would hit OH hard", read an April headline in the Cincinnati Enquirer.

President Donald Trump is reportedly ready to push forward with a 25-percent tariff on imported cars ahead of a scheduled meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker today. I have an idea for them.

About one out of every three rows of USA soybeans is shipped to China, according to estimates.
