WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump promised to remedy the negative effects on U.S. farmers caught up in his administration’s trade dispute with China.

Saying that farmers “are great patriots,” Mr. Trump acknowledged Monday they may feel pinched by new Chinese tariffs aimed at the president’s political base, including levies targeting U.S. agricultural exports from Farm Belt states. He said that farmers “will be better off,” but added that “it will take a little while to get there.”
