National Farmers Union represents 200,000 farms in 33 states and they are not happy with Trump.
Roger Johnson, President of NFU, is very upset that Trump elected to go it alone on addressing China’s trade abuses. TPP was in place and ready to go as a unified front against China, but Trump decided he knew better.
Just ask Maine’s lobster fishermen who have lost 80% of their exports to China. Canadian lobster trade, on the other hand, is seeing a nice surge in business.
Canada was part of TPP and is also a partner in the revised version without the US.
Of course the icing on the proverbial cake was Agriculture Secretary calling farmers whiners. Add in Lindsay Graham telling us to accept the pain.
An administration packed with multi-millionaires and billionaires and its party representing more of the same telling family farms, businesses and hard working Americans to suck it up. Farms are going under and have lost markets that may take decades to regain.
“Suck it up, whiner”. The new bumper sticker from our CINC.
And the topics coming from the regime?
Nuking Greenland and buying hurricanes. Or whatever spewed out recently to distract us from the mess being created.
