Do a little research and you'll find out why farm bankruptcies are way up since 2014.

And it's not because of Trump.

Oh btw, we've already had this discussion of a few months ago where the left was pushing the same lie of blaming Trump.

I did some research, and concluded that the fact that China is now buying its soybeans from Brazil and not from US farmers is Trump.

And growers around here, many of whom actually were taken in by Trump and his fraud, are getting nervous, particularly the almond growers, who produce 80% of the worlds almonds. I think they're beginning to imagine how a large tariff on their crop would affect their rather lucrative business.

It's a fact that farm bankruptcies have been soaring since 2014.

It's a fact that that the price paid for farm commodities like milk, corn, wheat etc crashed the same year.

Trump on Tuesday rushed to placate furious farmers and Senate Republicans about his escalating trade war with China, with lawmakers now considering a package of fresh bailout funds to quell a rebellion in agricultural states.

The fresh uproar came as farmers, lawmakers, business executives, and global investors are looking to Trump for clues on how far he intends to take the trade showdown with China. On Monday, Trump suggested the standoff could last years and lead to structural changes in the global economy.

On Tuesday, Trump offered conflicting forecasts, musing that a deal could come in the next month but also predicting a furious economic battle with Beijing.

Already gave them 12 billion dollars

Now he wants to give them 15 billion more

And where is that money going to come from?

How many U.S. jobs have been lost from China's ruthless trade tactics? In all industries.
