While In Wisconsin, Trump Vows To Resolve Milk Trade Dispute

While in Wisconsin, President Donald Trump vows to resolve the trade dispute with Canada which leaves many state farmers without buyers for their milk.

Trump appeared at Snap On Tools in Kenosha on Tuesday to sign an executive order calling for a review of visas for foreign high tech workers, while encouraging federal agencies to do more business with U-S firms. But in a departure from his announced agenda, Trump said he would start working with Governor Scott Walker and others to restore fair trade and end what Trump called "very unfair things" to dairy farmers and others. About 100 farmers will soon lose Grassland Dairy in Greenwood and Nasonville Dairy near Marshfield as buyers for their milk, after Canadian cheese processors stopped taking that milk in a pricing change which helped the country's own farmers. Outside the Snap On plant, some supporters hoped to get a glimpse of Trump, while protesters demanded that the president release his income tax returns.
