'America's farmers don't want to be paid to lose - they want to win by feeding the world, ' he said.
Agriculture officials say the plan will not require congressional approval. Brad Karmen, the USDA's assistant deputy administrator for farm programs, noted that the wheat harvest is already in, so wheat farmers could get payments sooner than other growers.
Trump declared earlier Tuesday that 'Tariffs are the greatest!' and threatened to impose additional penalties on USA trading partners as he prepared for negotiations with European officials at the White House.

Trump has threatened to place penalty taxes on up to $500 billion in products imported from China, a move that would dramatically ratchet up the stakes in the trade dispute involving the globe's biggest economies.
Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa said the aid package is "encouraging for the short term". "This administration's tariffs and bailouts aren't going to make America great again, they're just going to make it 1929 again". Bob Corker, R-Tenn., told reporters in Washington Tuesday. Some of Trump's fellow Republicans are also already balking at the idea of government-funded bailout for a trade war they oppose.
