Listen: Trump promises wider ethanol sales as trade wars hit farmers

US Senator Tina Smith, Democrat-Minnesota, joins Capitol Crude to share how President Donald Trump’s biofuel policies and trade wars are playing in the Midwest ahead of the November midterm elections. In Iowa this summer, Trump said he would approve year-round E15 sales “very soon”. But will Republicans lose votes in farm country if Trump doesn’t follow through on that promise?

Smith also talks about her opposition to the Environmental Protection Agency allowing small refineries to get out of their obligations under the biofuel mandate and what she hopes the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee can accomplish after the elections.
