Scott Walker says he hopes to meet today (Tuesday) with President Donald Trump in Kenosha, to seek more help for Wisconsin dairy farmers in their trade dispute with Canada.

The Republican governor says he wants to give the president the Wisconsin take on the matter -- in which at least 100 farmers will no longer be able to sell milk to their main dairy contractors, possibly forcing them and others out of business. State officials and the Wisconsin congressional delegation accuse Canada of violating a trade deal by no longer taking Wisconsin's specialized milk for a cheese product -- but Canada blames the state for the situation it's in. On Monday, officials said Mullins Cheese of Knowlton would take some of the milk cut off by two large dairies because of the Canadian pricing issue.
