"The European Union can import more soybeans from the USA and this is happening as we speak", Juncker said.

"The EU needs to open its markets to real free trade", said Bystron, adding that the EU now has over 12,000 different tariffs on different products. "We wouldn't need a handout, and hopefully we could get right back to where we were". The tariff also affects apples and cherries, which are big crops in our state.
