President Trump sought here Tuesday to temper a growing Republican rebellion over his escalating trade war, pleading with farmers to “be a little patient” and urged people not to believe the news reports they see and read.

As his administration prepares a $12 billion bailout for farmers whose products face tariffs from China and other countries retaliating against Trump’s trade policies, the president implored Americans to keep faith in his strategy.

Trump mocked the agriculture industry’s extensive efforts to persuade him to change course. “They have some of the greatest lobbying teams ever put together,” he said, taking pride in his unwillingness to be convinced. Ultimately, Trump argued, farmers “will be the biggest beneficiary” of his policies.

“Just be a little patient,” the president said.

“Just remember,” Trump told the crowd, “what you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.
