WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump is delivering another $16 billion dollars in aid to farmers to offset the costs of the trade battle with China. U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said Thursday the payments will come in three separate installments, with the first one scheduled for July or August. He said it is unlikely the United States and China will reach a trade deal before then.
