Letter: Stop China from buying Smithfield Foods

To the Editor:

Instead of enacting tariffs, the Trump administration needs to stop China from buying Smithfield Foods, America's largest pork producer. These enormous food producers should be classified as natural security assets, and kept in American hands.

If the deal isn't stopped, Americans will be paying tariffs on our own pork!
