“Trump announces $12 million dollar bailout of American farmers – why the trade war he started to help them, now requires taxpayers to save them”
– The New York Times Podcast, The Daily
This is incredibly frustrating, Michael.
Trump just announced plans to spend $12 billion to bail out farmers — including those in the Central Valley — from the devastation his trade war has created. That’s right — he’s sending in relief for a problem he caused but refuses to fix.
Trump and his team may be touting this bailout as an act of heroism, but this policy is nothing more than a band-aid on a deep wound that Trump should have never created in the first place.
Central Valley farmers don’t need bailouts, they need overseas markets to the sell their products in. There are no winners in a trade war, and until Trump ends these disastrous tariffs — our farmers will continue to suffer.
