"This roundtable will be a great opportunity to hear directly from Missouri businesses about the real-world impacts this trade war is having on our economy," McCaskill said. "We're already seeing lost jobs and falling commodity prices—and I'm worried things will only get worse if we don't reverse course."

In June, the Senator toured Mid Continent Nail Corporation in Poplar Bluff, Mo., the largest U.S. producer of steel nails, which was forced to reduce its workforce due to tariffs.
