The White House recently announced that it would be providing an additional $16 billion in aid to American farmers affected by the trade war between the U.S. and China.

But the problem for American farmers has becomes bigger than something a bailout can fix.

“This trade thing is what’s brought on by the president and it’s really frustrating because he took away all of our markets,” Bob Nuylen, a farmer from North Dakota who grows spring wheat and sunflowers, told Yahoo Finance. “We live in an area where we’re kind of in the middle of nowhere. It costs us a lot of money — over $1 a bushel to get our grain to markets.”

Yet Trump said he loved America farmers. Did Trump lie yet again?.

And the farmers continue to support Trump. I guess they enjoy the taxpayer handouts they're getting.

Incomes for farmers were stagnant for 30 years. Dairy farmers were lucky if they could break even, let alone pay off any of their immense debt obligations. It was obvious to them that doing the same thing and expecting different results was foolish, so they choose to fight with Trump. Most of them new there would be short term pain before there would be any long term gain.

It's rather distasteful how leftards that don't produce squat are so quick to add insult to injury when it comes to the farmer's situation, but that's leftists for ya. Everything is political fodder when you have nothing of substance to say, no real world policies that are workable, no real solutions to offer for anything. Only more lies and distortions and tearing down hard working, productive American citizens. Remember when democrats stood up for hard working American citizens? Me neither. What a disgrace.

The last hope for the dairy industry was the Chinese market. Trump destroyed that; it will take years rebuild the trade relationships that have been severed under this presidency.

Remember when Republicans championed free markets?

China is now buying from Russia and South America.

Hard to imagine why they would not continue to do so.

So much winning. Anyone tired of it yet?

It will take time to repair the damage Trump is causing, but one day US farmers will be in a situation where they are no longer dependent on the government (taxpayer) handouts.
