Cotton: Sacrifice by farmers hurt by tariffs is "minimal" compared to troops overseas

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) acknowledged on "CBS This Morning" Monday that U.S. farmers will be hurt by retaliatory tariffs stemming from President Trump's trade war with China, but said that their sacrifice is "pretty minimal" compared to the sacrifices of U.S. soldiers serving overseas.

Tom Cotton's inside look at Arlington's Old Guard

On the sidelines of White House ceremonies and at night at Arlington National Cemetery, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) interviewed members of the Army's Old Guard for a book, "Sacred Duty," that he has coming out May 14.

The senator told me he got the idea for the book because when he's campaigning in Arkansas, or when constituents visit him in D.C., the most common military question he gets isn't about iconic Army institutions like Ranger School or Airborne School. It's about Arlington and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, guarded around the clock by the Old Guard.
