China is doing very badly, worst year in 27 - was supposed to start buying our agricultural product now - no signs that they are doing so. That is the problem with China, they just don’t come through. Our Economy has become MUCH larger than the Chinese Economy is last 3 years....

China is buying agricultural products from Brazil, thanks to Trump's tariff, which they don't have to pay since they've gone to Brazil.

Trumpworld must be a bizarre place.

Wonder if Trump is going to give another check to the farmers to make up for the loss of tarrifs before election day in 2020?

Trump is very strange fella. He gets these ideas in his head. Then, he immediately goes out and tries to reverse engineer reality to fit that idea. We all do that to a certain degree. We all have our own "truth". Most of us try to advance that truth in order to persuade our way. But, Trump is different because he sees reality itself as mutable. He's a "Wizard of Oz" in real life. Telling people not to pay any attention that man behind the curtain. Only that "man" is reality itself.

Trump said Tuesday that a new trade deal with China might not come until after the 2020 elections, a significant departure from more than a year of trying to exert pressure on the world’s second-largest economy.

His comments were the latest in rapidly evolving and sometimes contradictory strategic shifts. Less than two months ago, he announced that a huge crackdown against China was imminent. On Tuesday, he suggested that further action could be more than a year away, and everything could change based on whether he is reelected.

In a series of Twitter posts, Trump accused China of delaying negotiations, which began in earnest last December. Even as Trump’s chief trade advisers resumed talks in Shanghai, the president’s tweets suggested a deal may be further away than it had seemed in recent months.

Some influential business leaders are growing worried at the lack of progress in the talks, which the administration in May said were on the verge of a historic deal before collapsing. Despite Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreeing last month to restart negotiations, the bargaining has been slow to resume. “The two sides are still trying to figure out how to get back to the table,” said Myron Brilliant, executive vice president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “We were close in May. Now the ground has gotten shakier.

They are planning a second round, but of course, it's the large corporate farms that are getting almost all of the assistance.
You got that right. Especially Republican congressmen (and they're all men and in the GOP). But one of the most egregious cases is the huge 62MILLION$$ payout to two Brazilian billionaires, who happen to be criminals... And friends of Trump. (What a surprise!)

"The Justice Department, meanwhile, is probing JBS for possible violations in the U.S. of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, according to filings in an unrelated court case reviewed by The News. Reuters reported in December that Justice Department investigators interviewed the Batistas in Brazil late last year as part of that investigation.​
Nonetheless, Trump’s Agriculture Department issued $14.5 million in bailout cash for pork products from JBS in February and another $25.6 million earlier this month, totaling more than $62.4 million, according to the purchase reports."​

So let them buy farming equipment from Brazil. Who gives a shit. That's better than them stealing our manufacturing jobs and destroying the middle class of America. Let China go wreck Brazil's economy for a change. It's a lot cheaper to simply give our farmers assistance than suffer the largest trade deficits in the history of the world with China.

What's actually a bizarre place is weirdo democrat world who are suddenly taking China's side over our own working class. It's sickening watching how easily corporate America bought off the democrats with cheap short term profits from China. Fuck every last politician who sold out to China. I hope they all go bankrupt and die living in squalor - the same fate they gave so many Americans.
