Ranchers and farmers in the Mountain West ship a lot of products overseas to China. Now the Trump administration is expected to hit China with $60 billion dollars worth of annual tariffs.
Last year China opened its doors to U.S. beef for the first time in more than a decade.
Montana ranchers jumped at the opportunity. They signed a multi-million dollar deal with a large Chinese company to sell beef.
George Haynes, an economist with Montana State University, wonders what the retaliation is going to be if the Trump administration slaps these tariffs on China.
