One of them will become prime minister In just under a month, the new prime minister will be announced. We’ll find out if Boris Johnson or Jeremy Hunt will take over as leader of the Conservatives, after members of the party have had the chance to vote. They will take over as prime minister the next day, after Theresa May‘s final Prime Minister’s Questions. The party confirmed the date this afternoon. They said a postal ballot of the 160,000 or so Conservative Party members who get to decide would close on July 22. The field has been narrowed down already, with contenders such as Sajid Javid, Michael Gove and Rory Stewart knocked out during voting by MPs. Boris Johnson is the bookies’ favourite, though his campaign has been dominated by the news police were called to his home after a screaming argument. He has refused to answer questions about it. Boris Johnson refused to answer questions about where this photo came from On the BBC, Mr Johnson said: ‘I do not talk about stuff involving my family, my loved ones. ‘And there’s a very good reason for that. That is that, if you do, you drag them into things that … in a way that is not fair on them.’ Pressed about a photo that ’emerged’ showing him and girlfriend Carrie Symonds together since the argument, he continuously refused to answer questions this morning.  The would-be prime minister rebuffed all attempts by LBC radio host Nick Ferrari to say how old the image was or whether he was aware of its presence. Both candidates were invited to debate each other on Sky News tonight, but Boris Johnson declined to appear. Leadership rival Mr Hunt said he would answer questions on Twitter instead, saying Mr Johnson’s refusal to take part was not fair on the public. ‘Tonight I was meant to be debating Boris Johnson on Sky, answering questions about our plans for Britain. ‘Sadly, Boris has pulled out – which I don’t believe is fair on you, the public.’ [metro-fact-box id=”8027376″ title=”Got a story for Metro.co.uk?” icon=”exclamation” /]

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue admitted this week that American farmers have been hit hard by President Donald Trump’s trade policies. But, he said, he would make no promises about continued aid to those paying the price. Perdue traveled to Iowa this week to tell the state’s farmers that the administration appreciates their sacrifices, even as Trump continues to unilaterally increase tariffs in hopes of convincing other countries to give him trade deals. According to the USDA’s 2017 statistics, Iowa is home to 86,104 farms. “President Trump has a lot of respect for farmers and ranchers across this country,” Perdue said, in an interview with CNN, which aired Tuesday. “He appreciates your patience. He understands that it is tough out there.” The former Georgia governor was then asked directly if American farmers were “the casualty” in Trump’s trade war with China. “I think they are one of the casualties there of the trade disruption, yes,” Perdue responded. Perdue noted that Trump had made some $16 billion in bailout money — part of a flawed policy to help aid growers affected by the trade war — available to farmers this year to help make up for the damages Trump had caused, proof he suggested that farmers can “count on him.” Asked whether this aid would continue, however, Perdue was emphatic that the bailout was for this year only. “Again, this is a 2019 program, I’m not going to promise anything for 2020,” he said. Iowa has been hit hard by Trump’s policies. The state’s senior senator, Republican Chuck Grassley, said last month that he would write a letter to the president to explain in detail how much the administration’s imposed tariffs harm his constituents. He noted that he was putting the concerns in writing because he does not believe Trump is capable of understanding the issue when explained out loud. “I’m not sure if you talk to him face-to-face he hears everything you say,” Grassley said at the time. According to the conservative Iowa Farm Bureau, Iowa farm bankruptcies have soared to an 18-year high under Trump. Trump will meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping this week to restart negotiations on a trade deal, though Perdue said he does not expect a deal to be achieved before the end of this year. The United States and China have been in a trade war for the past year. Trump imposed a 25% tariff on the import of Chinese goods last summer — making products like steel and aluminum more expensive for American consumers — and China retaliated with similar policies to reduce sales of American goods exported there. In May, Trump also raised tariffs on another $200 billion in Chinese imports, hiking them from 10% to 25%. China, as it did previously, immediately responded by announcing its own tariffs on $60 billion worth of American exports.
