"Capitol View" Preview: President Trump Announces New Round of Tariffs

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- Farmers and business in Arkansas and across the U.S. are finding ways to adjust as the Trump administration ramps up a trade war with China and other countries. 

The latest round of tariffs was announced Friday against the nation of Turkey.

The most notable tariffs are being lobbed back and forth between the U.S. and China. 

In Arkansas, Sen. Tom Cotton (R- Arkansas) sat down with local farmers this week.

He says it hasn't been easy for them, but shared this perspective. 

"They have concerns, but they also know that the United States has gotten a pretty raw deal for many years with our trading partners, and they see the president not as starting a trade war, but trying to finish a trade war- a trade war that a country like China has been waging against the American worker and the American farmer for 30 or 40 years," says Sen. Cotton.

You can hear much more of Sen. Cotton's thoughts on trade, as well as Russia, North Korea and a lot more on Capitol View.

Also on this week's edition, Democratic Second District Congressional Candidate Clarke Tucker discusses tariffs, tax cuts and health care. 

"Capitol View" airs at 8:30 Sunday morning on KARK, right before "Meet the Press".
