PORK INDUSTRY HOPEFUL FOR JAPAN DEAL, EXPORTS TO CHINA DOUBLE DESPITE TARIFFS
POLITICO reports:

U.S. pork exporters are ready for blastoff - if Trump comes through with a pair of trade victories in Asia. A farm-focused deal with Tokyo, which the White House hopes to wrap up in the coming months, would help the pork industry maintain its foothold in the valuable Japanese market.

And if Trump can resolve tensions with China (he claims to be "the chosen one" to take on Beijing), U.S. producers could also tap into the booming Chinese demand for imported protein as African swine fever ravages the country's domestic hog herds.

Even with retaliatory tariffs in place, June pork exports to China were more than double the five-year monthly average.
