We're taking in, right now, hundreds of billions of dollars. We're taking in billions of dollars of tariffs. And those tariffs are going to be tremendously... If you look at what we've done thus far with China... We've never taken in 10 cents until I got elected. Now we're taking in billions and billions. Now, it went up as of Friday very substantially. It's 25 per cent on $200bn. So now the total is 25 per cent on $250bn. In addition to that, we have another $325bn that we can do, if we decide to do it.
So we are taking in tens of billions of dollars. We've never done that before with China. We've never done that before with anybody, frankly, because we've been taken advantage of on all of our trade deals, practically. This is a very positive step. I love the position we're in. There can be some retaliation. But it can't be very, very substantial by comparison. And out of the billions of dollars that we're taking in, a small portion of that will be going to our farmers. Because China will be retaliating probably to a certain extent against our farmers.
We're going to take the highest year, the biggest purchase that China has ever made with our farmers, which is about $15bn and do something reciprocal to our farmers. So our farmers can do well. They'll be planting, they'll be able to sell for less and they'll make the same kind of money until such time as it's all straightened out. Now, we're in a very good position and I think it's only going to get better.
