President's reversal of restrictions to Cuba to hurt AR farmers

LITTLE ROCK - Farmers in Arkansas speak out against President Trump's reversal of door-opening trade policies with Cuba.

Fifth generation farmer Robby Bevis spends his Saturdays out on his farm in Scott, AR.

"I have a son that farms with me who will be 6th generation," said Bevis.

Bevis said it's already hard work earning a living from the fields, and after President Trump's decision to reverse travel and economic restrictions with Cuba, it may be an even bigger challenge.

"It's a shame that this has happened because the markets are down farmers are having a tough time right now they need every dollar we can," said Bevis.

Friday afternoon President Trump reversed restrictions with Cuba, once lifted by former President Obama.
