Mexico may have found a weapon to fight back against President Trump and America’s new system of stopping immigration from Mexico: they are a huge buyer of US corn crops, and are threatening to stop corn trade with America over political views on the wall and immigration.
With billions of dollars worth of trade on the line, Mexico may pull out that card on President Trump. Currently the Latin American country uses tons of our corn to feed their livestock populations.
This may be a concern for several northern states that did heavily vote Trump and whose beliefs align with the administration: Iowa, North Dakota, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.
President Trump has promised to restrict free trade with Mexico anyway, as it is putting American jobs at stake. What remains to be seen is how the administration might deal with backlash from the Mexican government.
