Two U.S. senators — Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Pat Roberts of Kansas — could play key roles in relaxing the noose tightening around the necks of farmers, factory workers and manufacturers across the nation.

President Donald Trump fashioned that rope. He’s ignited a trade war by imposing punitive tariffs on imported goods such as steel and aluminum.

To no one’s surprise, America’s trading partners have retaliated by erecting barriers of their own, taking aim at whiskey, motorcycles, even ketchup. China is expected to impose a 25 percent tariff on soybeans Friday.
