Trump moves to shore up US agriculture after latest tit-for-tat tariffs

Mining Capital's Alastair Ford tells Proactive Investors the geopolitical interest this week has been on the US agricultural sector as Donald Trump announced a multi billion dollar aid package for US farmers who've been hit by the tariff war.

''The Chinese are now implementing tariffs on soy beans and other US produce and Mr Trump is looking to support his base - he has quite widespread support in rural farming communities''.

Ford also discusses the gemstone market - in particular Fura Gems Inc (CVE:FURA), Botswana Diamonds (LON:BOD) and Shefa Yamim ATM (LON:SEFA).

Thunderstruck Resources Ltd (TSXV:AWE, OTCQB:THURF) also gets a mention - they've just begun trading on the OTCQB Venture Marketplace - and he questions Platinum's recovery after hitting 10 year lows.
