WAUKEE — Vice President Mike Pence will visit a central Iowa farm this afternoon, part of the Trump Administration’s effort to pressure congress to ratify the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement.Angela Hofmann of “Farmers for Free Trade” says farmers across the country are hoping the trade war with China is close to being resolved, too. “It’s time to calm things down,” Hofmann says. “Really optimistic about trying to bring a deal together. I applaud the administration for trying to resolve these difficult trade issues with our trading partners and then get Iowans back in the business of selling their products around the world.”According to data from a group called Americans for Free Trade, Iowa farmers and businesses have faced $343 million in retaliatory tariffs since the trade war began in February of 2018.“Some of the good news is we’re in the process of passing this USMCA in the very near future and so that resolves a number of the issues with steel and aluminum tariffs that were recently removed,” Hofmann says.Negotiators from the U.S. and China are scheduled to meet in Washington tomorrow. Media reports this morning indicate China is open to a “partial” trade deal that includes a promise to buy U.S. agricultural commodities. Hofmann says in her travels through Iowa, the number one concern she’s heard from farmers is about the loss of access to China’s markets.“The Brazlians, Argentines, Australians, Canadians — they’re quickly making a move into those markets,” Hofmann says, “and while we’ve not been seen as a reliable supplier, the more this goes on, the longer this goes on, the less likely it is we’re going to be able to regain that strong foothold in Asia some of our key export markets.”Vice President Pence is set to speak later this afternoon on a farm near Waukee about the USMCA and he’ll be joined by Iowa’s top three Republican elected officials: Governor Kim Reynolds and U.S. Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst.Former Iowa Lieutenant Governor Patty Judge, a Democrat who’s chairwoman of a group called “Focus on Rural America,” says the Trump-Pence Administration has pursued a “reckless” agenda that has undercut Iowa’s largest economic sector — forcing biofuels plants to close and John Deere to layoff workers.

0Shares0000Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr reacts on the touchline during his side’s Kenyan premier League clash against Mathare United on April 29, 2018 at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 30- With the mid-season transfer window just over a month away, Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr has hinted that he may be going out into the market to strengthen the team and has warned his players not to start getting comfortable.The British tactician was left red with anger after Sunday evening’s 2-2 draw with Mathare United in Machakos and was specifically enraged with winger Samuel Onyango for two reasons; first, he missed a brilliant opportunity to make it 3-1 off a counter and second, lost the ball in the build up to Mathare’s late equalizer. “We conceded a goal off our own mistake. Our so called good players can’t keep the ball. The work that I do off the field, the preparations by watching other teams and in training, it is like I am talking to a brick wall sometimes,” Kerr fumed after the match against Mathare.He added; “I need to do some serious hunting in the June transfer window because I have seen, and I don’t want complacency to set in. We got the quality but we don’t use that quality.”The second consecutive 2-2 draw posted by the record Kenyan champions sees their lead remain three points at the top, though they have the prestige of two un-played matches due to their CAF Confederation Cup schedule.Gor Mahia skipper Harun Shakava controls the ball under pressure from Mathare United’s Chris Oduor and Francis Omondi during their Kenyan Premier League clash on April 29, 2018 at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaThe weight of the congested calendar seems to have already started settling into the feet of the players and their concession of eight goals in four matches has been a huge grey area to the Kenyan giants.“It is very hard for me because we have a tough run of fixtures and some of the mistakes we do in matches should be corrected in training. We have a plan in place to keep the players refreshed but sometimes it is very tough because you don’t want to tire the players,” the tactician further noted.After Mathare’s tedious game on Sunday, Gor will only have a day for rest and recovery before switching their attention to the Hull City play-off match against arch rivals AFC Leopards on Tuesday in Nakuru.This will be a headache of sorts for the tactician whose side travels to Kigali, Rwanda, for their first CAF Confederations Cup match against Rayon Sports just five days later.Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr shouts instructions on the touchline during his side’s Kenyan Premier League clash against Mathare United on April 29, 2018 at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos. PHOTO/Raymond Makhaya“It’s tricky for me because we can’t even do a recovery session for the players. We have travel to think about, we have the game then five days later we have the Confederations Cup which is important for us,” the coach says.“But we know we have a derby which is important for the fans and the Hull City is important to my players because they want to have a chance to play against an English side. I have to pick a team of players who want to play, who want to win,” the coach further noted.He expects a tough challenge from Ingwe despite the fact that they have not been doing well in the league, but he is yet to conclude whether or not to field his best team for the Tuesday afternoon tie.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)
