the u.s. china trade war will raise costs for americans but president trump is defending his tariffs even though he admits farmers could get hit by real yo -- by retaliatory measures. trump said he would use money from tariffs to help keep farmers afloat. >> out of the billions of dollars 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 and so our farmers can do well. they will be planting, they will be able to sell for less, and they'll make the same kind of money until such time as it's all straightened out. our farmers will be very happy. i think it's working out well. >> trump said the u.s. could impose stronger tariffs to the tune of $300 billion, and added he will meet with chinese president xi jinping at the g20 summit in japan late next month. china's decision to retaliate against the trump administration
sends shivers through the market with investors realizing the trade war between the two largest economies could be long-term. m matt rivers has more. matt, good morning. good morning. it's interesting, it was yesterday evening in beijing that china decided to go ahead with the retaliatory measures and chose to make that public an hour before stocks opened in the u.s. for the week. that was not a coincidence. they did that to have maximum impact, and that's exactly what china has been doing since the start to have the trade war. when they retaliate, they choose products usually that will have the maximum amount of political interest. take soybeans, for example, one of the first things china targeted in the trade war, and yesterday they announced tariff hikes on things like corn flour, grain, aircraft parts, the kinds of products that are made in the kinds of places that voted for president trump.
the aim here is to have political impact and as we saw with the timing of the announcement, to have impact on the stock market in the u.s., that's something the president watches closely. at the same time, china is trying to drum up nationalistic support here in china, talking about how they're growing more soybeans domestically than ever before and urging the public to get ready for a fight with the united states. when it comes to the economy, they are saying this is a nationalistic effort against the united states. >> no sign of either side backing down. matt rivers live in beijing, thank you my friend. secretary of state mike pompeo heads to russia this morning. just a few hours, he's set to meet with vladimir putin on a wide range of issues including iran, arms control, and ukraine. senior international correspondent matthew chance live in moscow for us with the latest. matthew. >> reporter: thank you, he was supposed to come to moscow, first the russian capital but mike pompeo, the u.s. secretary

wall street looking to recover after the biggest one day drop since january. asian markets declined after china retaliates with higher tariffs on $60 billion worth of u.s. goods. european markets have opened slightly higher. on wall street, futures pointing to positive open after monday's sharp decline. u.s. china trade war will raise costs for americans, but president trump is defending his tariffs even though he admits farmers could get hit by retaliatory measures. monday trump said he would use some of the tariff revenue, which is paid by u.s. importers to help keep farmers afloat. >> 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 dpe against our farmers. so our farmers can do well. they will be planting, able to sell for less, and they will make the same kind of money until such time that it's all straightened out. our farmers will be very happy.
i think it's working out very well. >> trump also said the u.s. could impose stronger tariffs to the tune of another $300 billion and he added he'll meet with chinese president xi jinping at the g20 summit in japan late next month. china's decision to retaliate against the trump administration sent shivers through the market. matt rivers live in beijing with more on how china is fighting back. matt? >> reporter: part of the reason china's decision to retaliate was felt so strongly is china chose to make public the retaliatory measures about an hour before the opening bell. that was done by design. china wants to have as maximum an impact on the american economy with these retaliatory measures as it can while not escalating the situation further. looking at the $60 billion worth of products china chose to raise rates on, corn flour, grain, aircraft parts, these are the
kind of products that are oftentimes made in places, parts of the u.s. that were pro president trump in the 2016 election. the point there on china's said is to say look, we want to have as much political impact as well with these measures in order to put pressure on the white house. meanwhile, back here at home, the nationalist rhetoric has escalated saying to the chinese people, this is a fight against the united states, not just about the economics of it all, dave. >> neither side backing down. matt rivers live for us, 5:43 p.m. in beijing. thanks, matt. staying abroad, he'll be a day late but secretary of state mike pompeo heads to russia, in a few hours set to meet with vladimir putin on a wide range of issues including iran. senior correspondent matthew ca chance standing by live in moscow with the latest. >> reporter: it will be about three hours before mike pompeo, the u.s. secretary of state arrives in russia.
he's not coming to moscow. he abandoned that leg of the visit, much to the frustration of russian lawmakers who said it was feverish actions being demonstrated by u.s. secretary of state, and not stable diplomacy they expected from the u.s.'s top diplomat. secretary pompeo will be going straight to sochi in southern russia, meeting with the russian foreign minister and the putin. the key issue is iran, the russian foreign minister saying he's looking for clarification from secretary pompeo about how the u.s. plans to get out of this crisis that he said has been caused by uni lateral american decisions laying the blame at the foot of washington for all of this tension that's accumulating around iran. the foreign minister of russia says he expects the discussions to be frank, often shorthand for heated. russia and iran have emerged as key allies. russia provides diplomatic support for teheran, and it is deeply suspicious about u.s. intentions when it comes to the
islamic republic, dave. >> and yet another opportunity to discuss russian interference in our election. matthew chance, thanks. staying abroad, is the trump administration now preparing for war with iran? >> hearing little stories about iran, if they do anything, they will suffer greatly. we'll see what happens with iran. >> "the new york times" reports acting defense secretary patrick shanahan told top national security officials last week as many as 120,000 troops could be sent to the middle east if iran attacks american forces. not clear if the president would agree. president trump warning the irania irania iranians they'll have a quote bad problem if they play a role in sabotaged tankers. nic robertson at the port where the oil tankers were sabotaged. nic, what are we learning.
>> reporter: the emirates have called in the united states to help them in the investigation, not just because they want the technical expertise but they want to send the clear and strong message across the persian gulf to iran, the emirates, the tanker that was impacted by the sack san bernardino -- the sabotage as well. when we were at the port yesterday, you can see u.s. naval vessels around one of the saudi tank, and those u.s. naval assets are based in this port facility here. that's the message the emirates are sending to iran. they have good allies and the allies are helping them. who was it that was behind the attack. that isn't clear, but the emirates say they think this could have been a missile or rocket attempt on the vessels, looking at the back of one of the ships, it was big enough, you could swim from the outside to the hull of the ship. it was peeled open like you might peel open a can of
sardines. what we are learning is the intelligence is gathered in the region, that does seem to match the u.s. concerns we have been hearing about that the iranians might have been positioning themselves to threaten shipping in this area. so of course tensions are high. the answer to the question who did it, still an open mystery. >> wow. nic robertson live at the uae, 1:38 p.m. there. thank you, nic. let's bring in "washington post" columnist, josh, good to see you my friend. the trade war with china, it appears the chinese are trying to wait out the clock on president trump and have no plans of changing their laws in terms of how they do business. how do you see resolution between two of the world's biggest economies. >> it looks like in the last couple of weeks, the chinese government and the markets both misunderstood president trump's commitment to getting a strong deal on trade with the chinese government. you know, the chinese thought
that they could change the terms and that trump would be forced to accept it. they thought that time was on their side and that as the president heads closer to his election, and as the u.s. economy perhaps slows down, they have more leverage. the markets have always been very pro deal, and they were expecting a deal whether or not it up held to what president trump has said he wants. they were both wrong, and now it looks like this is going to take a lot longer than both of them expected. president trump simply believes that time is on his side. he thinks the u.s. economy is strong, and he's willing to wait it out until he gets the terms he demands. that means we all have to wait it out and see what happens. >> both sides appear to think they have the leverage. we talked about mike pompeo meeting with vladimir putin. we could use their help when it comes to iran, north korea in particular, venezuela, do you expect the u.s. to get any help from the russians on those fronts? >> i don't see why the russians would help the united states in any of those places at this moment. it's not like we have a lot to
trade, it's not like we have a lot of leverage, you know, the united states is looking to get out of syria and hand over that problem to russia. we'd love for them to take iran out of the equation in syria, but there's no reason they're going to do that. in venezuela we're trying to send a strong medicatiiss that should not interfere, it's unclear what leverage we have to make that happen. as we look around the world, there's a lot of things the u.s. and russia could cooperate on. but the russians are not going to help us out of the kindness of their heart. they're going to help us if it's if had their interest or we have leverage to compel them to. all the problems that the trump administration is involved in are all sort of piling up and the russians, because they're smarter, willing to let it stew, and if we give them concessions, sure they'll help us but i don't see exactly what it is that mike pompeo is going to offer. >> let's zero in on iran and the coming confrontation. john bolton has talked about
striking iran, he has talked about regime change in iran. it's tough to separate his intentions with the president, from where you stand, what is our suspension with iranians? >> well, yeah, first of all, i think there's real credible threat reporting that the united states government is responding to. i don't think that's made up. i don't think that's part of some sort of secret effort to get us into war with iran. at the same time, there's a gap, as you mentioned, inside the u.s. national security system as to what it is we're really willing to do about it. when you see "the new york times" come out with a report of 120,000 troops, that's an extreme option, and that's meant to show sort of the most dangerous, the most serious scenario. before that, there's a lot of other things we could do. the problem here is that because we have confusion inside our own system and dysfunction inside our own system, our signaling is all messed up and because the iran system is by its nature confusing and dysfunctional, their signaling is
dysfunctional, and therein lies the risk of miscalculation and rising on the escalation ladder that neither side wants. we're heading into a very dangerous period where the risk that something could happen goes way way up because we don't have clear lines. they don't have clear lines. everyone is afraid of backing down, and so this off ramp where we can all sort of take a breath and say, okay, listen, let's not get into a war and see what's possible. it's not clear where they off ramp is right now. >> given the tense times, this should be a bigger story but yesterday in the oval office, the president meeting with the prime minister of hungry said this, listen. >> highly respected all over europe. probably like me a little bit controversial but that's okay. that's okay. >> probably a little bit controversial. tell us more about the prime minister of hungary. >> i traveled in 2004 to hungary
with the late senator john mccain, and watched him scold victor orban on his democratic backsliding and talk to the opposition and ensure them america would stand up if the universal rights and democratic progress they represented. that's awe gone now -- all gone now and when president trump embraces a faux ruler like orban, he sends a signal to opposition leaders all over europe and all over the world, fighting for democracy, that the u.s. is no longer on their side, and it's also a big thumb in the eye of all of the european allies that we have traditional stood by that orban is fighting against. it's a huge departure in u.s. foreign policy. it's really a departure away from the values that bipartisan groups in congress support, and that american presidents for the last 70 years have supported and you know, i think when we go to european countries they ask them for help on things like iran.
it may look at us, while you're undermining our countries and wagging your fingers at us for doing the things that americans always stood for, and then you come ask us for help on something like iran, that makes it certain they won't help you. it undermines american values and interests at the same time. >> i'm reading from your piece on the mccain visit, the late senator said america is watching, now they're embracing. josh rogin, the perfect guest to discuss this. thank you. >> anytime. if you're flying jet blue, get to the airport early. the customers face longer than normal lines at airports across the country. the airline putting the problem on saudi arab saber, its booking technology system. other airlines use saber. cnn checking to see if those carriers are affected. ahead, amazon wants its employees to quit their jobs and start their own delivery business. it's paying them to do so.
