President Trump announced earlier this week that beginning next Monday, an additional $200 billion dollars' worth of Chinese goods will be taxed. China plans to fire back with more tariffs of its own.

MPR News host Cathy Wurzer checked in with Kevin Paap for an update on how Minnesota's farmers are faring in the deepening U.S.-China trade dispute. Paap is the president of the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation, and a farmer in Blue Earth County.
