The same day that President Donald Trump gushed on Twitter that "tariffs are great", his administration disclosed plans to pay billions in aid to U.S. farmers getting slammed by tariffs on their goods, a new report said Tuesday.

The administration's plan will rely on commodity support programs in the farm bill as well as the Agriculture Department's authority to stabilize farmers during times of turmoil, according to a report in Politico.

Before departing for Kansas City, Trump tweeted that US trade partners need to either negotiate a "fair deal, or it gets hit with Tariffs". "We'll make it up to them", he said.

Mr. Trump didn't specifically by name which countries will come to the White House or when they're set to arrive.

"The president writes that the U.S.is a "'piggy bank' that's being robbed".

"The single best tribute to our workers can be found in the unmatched quality and craftsmanship of the awesome products they bring from the blueprint to the storefront", Trump added in a statement.

Punishing tariffs have been introduced on imported goods from Canada, China, and the EU. Trump has threatened to ratchet that up to more than $500 billion, a move that has left financial markets uneasy. He has also threatened to slap tariffs on imported cars, trucks and auto parts, potentially targeting imports that past year totalled $335 billion.

"We're stopping the barriers to other countries". Retaliatory tariffs against the United States have included additional export costs for soybeans, pork, and beef, among other goods and services.

On Monday, the White House confirmed that Trump was considering removing security clearances from Brennan and other former officials. "This is the way it's going to go - make our farmers great again".
