Thanks for taking the time to watch this web extra from my interview with Mariannette Miller-Meeks.
The two of us spent a few minutes talking about trade and gun rights.
We’ve seen the trade war with China hit farmers in Iowa hard.
She’s on the record supporting the president on trying to negotiate new terms with China.
There is the phase one deal that opens up trade, but doesn’t lift the tariffs.
Now the president threatens to pull out of the agreement.
Miller-Meeks addressed if this is a good policy for farmers.
Miller-Meeks is a gun rights supporter.
The second amendment confirms the right to bear arms, but an overwhelming number of Americans support background checks as a way to keep guns away from people who shouldn’t have them.
Miller-Meeks discussed what the line is for her when it comes to access to guns and magazine rounds.
Watch the full conversation in the video above.
