    Perhaps and if so, they are subsidized, no? If they are subsidized, then that might well be grounds to tariff their crops.

    Do the math.

    I'm just surprised someone who supports tariffs doesn't depending who imposes them.

    What are they going to do if Bernie Sanders is the nominee in 2020? Go back to arguing that free trade is bad?

    Of course. Being hypocrites doesn't seem to bother them in the least.

    Yes, I realize that. The biggest market for soybeans is Asia. If the price is uncompetitive, they don't sell in that market. Do try to remember that high demand means higher prices, lower demand lower prices.
