I am in Brussels, but always thinking about our farmers. Soy beans fell 50% from 2012 to my election. Farmers have done poorly for 15 years. Other countries’ trade barriers and tariffs have been destroying their businesses. I will open...

.things up, better than ever before, but it can’t go too quickly. I am fighting for a level playing field for our farmers, and will win!

Disappointed. 

The thread title led me to expect titties.

It will take many years of hard work and patient diplomacy to undo all the damage after the orange idiot is gone.

Ha ha ha ha. The USA protects and coddles its farmers to a degree that would make even the French blush.

It didn’t evaporate. It moved to Russia. Im sure that’s just a coincidence.

I never cry for farmers. In good years we never hear a peep out of them. The just quietly pocket the profits, buy new pickemup trucks, etc. In bad years the wailing is incessant. No group in the USA benefits from subsidies, direct and hidden, as much as the farmers. Plus over representation in Government. The hugest bunch of coddled babies.

They selflessly feed us? What a bunch of crock.

I have both empathy and sympathy for the family farmer and none for the big corporate enterprises.

" three quarters of all U.S. farms gross only $50,000 a year and currently account for only 4 percent of product sales. "

Punitive taxes on absentee landowners (and yes, I'm one) and subsidies for family farmers living on site would be, I think, in the nation's interest. A lot of good things come off a farm that have nothing to do with consumption.

Is this actually Trump?   I ask because this is largely accurate and he usually just makes shit up.  

Weird.

The geeks have identified two devices used to post tweets.   One is a staff member with good grammar, the other is an android associated with lies and BS.  It is believed to be used personally by the President.
