I'm sure the farmers suffering financial hardship are blaming HIllary or President Obama.

Did Trump ever take ONE economics class?  

 

The president’s trade policies have sent U.S. agricultural exports plunging, exacerbating already difficult economic conditions facing farmers. Average farm income has fallen to near 15-year lows under Trump, and in some areas of the country, farm bankruptcies are soaring.

 

“You’ve had farms that have gone out of business, that have gone bankrupt because of this trade war,” said Kuehl of Farmers for Free Trade. “There’s a lot of farmers going through tough conversations right now with their lenders.”

Mr Kuehl is missing an all-important adjective in his description of farm life under Der Trumper. His statement should've been "You’ve had SMALL farms that have gone out of business, that have gone bankrupt because of this trade war,” Then you could see plainly how lil donny is simply following generations of Republicans who wanted "orderly markets" and the only way to do that is by MONOPOLY CONTROL, which is what they've been promoting since Ike left office. One area they were not able to succeed in was FARMING. The soil is too rich and the farmers are too savvy, so donny had to find a way to rip the rug out from under them, and his usless trade war was just the ticket. Not only did it destroy the projected sizable profits from beans, wheat and corn, closing the Government just when he did prevented a bunch of farmers from getting the crop information they need to make rational decisions about what to plant for next year. Now, thanks to lil donny and Republicans in State Legislatures, a whole bunch of family farms will have the last name "INC."on the mailbox.

 

Anyone who does not believe Republicans are driving us toward rule by a Corporate Oligarchy simply does not understand what they're looking at, and whether it's from stupidity or dogmatism really doesn't matter.
