WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s tariffs are “overwhelming” both agricultural and nonagricultural products, U.S. Republican Senator Joni Ernst told reporters on Tuesday as the Trump administration prepares to hold fresh trade talks with China.

Ernst, who represents the farm state of Iowa, also said Democrats need “to be willing to come to the table sit down and work through these trade issues.”
