Trump admin to offer $12 billion in emergency aid to farmers hurt by his tariffs
It seems making them dependent on the government was the goal all along. Buys votes......

The meat industry is taking a big hit due to Trumps trade war.

That's a great idea. I was hoping to hear something like this being done. We should use all the tariffs collected to offset loss to our American's being impacted no matter the industry. "MAGA"
That's the way to win a trade war we have been losing for decades.

They already get 25 billion per year in direct subsidies against NAFTA rules. What's another 12 billion or so of taxpayer money spent to subsidize them?

It would have been called "Bail-out" if Democrats did it. Republicans are doing it so its called "Assistance"
