It took 30 years to build overseas agriculture markets. Trump destroyed it in a few months. Willing to vote him out?

The long-term domino-effect damages for America's farmers and our agricultural markets are not yet fully known, PoBoy, but suffice it to say that many of our nation's farmers are facing bankruptcy and loss of their farms because of the Trump administration's peacock-strut (all for show) trade tariffs on our allies and on China with no diplomatic foundation laid to soften the blows. The American people end up paying these Trump-imposed tariffs, since imports (with new higher costs added) are bought by American companies who pass those higher costs on to the consumers.
When lifts-wearing phony-man Trump abruptly pulled the United States out of the 179-nation PARIS ACCORD without even reading the agreement, he stripped the U.S. of our WORLD LEADER status, lumping our nation in with the only two other nations not part of the markets-opening, jobs-creating PARIS ACCORD that Barack Obama and his top-notch team worked from their first year in power to forge. First Secretary Clinton, then her successor John Kerry worked tirelessly to open at least seven new Asian markets to buying U.S.-grown and U.S.-made products, negotiated in part to curb Chinese aggression on trade. Guess what? Pulling us out of the global PARIS ACCORD closed those seven new Asian markets to the U.S.---and CHINA took our place as the new "World Leader" nation! If anyone had bothered to ask the 4" lifts wearing old man Trump what is in the PARIS ACCORD, he would not know even one line of it.
RockIt claims "progressives" in the 1920s and 1930s, but it was the always-fail economy-destroying policies of the Republicans who controlled House, Senate, and the White House when the 1929 GREAT DEPRESSION took hold for almost a decade. Same goes for the Great Recession that had GOP totalitarian control between 2001 and 2008. As the "Where have all the flowers gone?" song goes: "When will they ever learn?"
The duplicitous Republicans in Congress have to share some of the blame for our farmers' dire straits because they are, for the most part, turning a deliberately blind eye to the ongoing damages and criminality of the Trump White House---the latest allowing AG Barr's relatives (Justice Department employees) be transferred to key COVER-UP of crimes and incompetence positions, to include a U.S. Attorney for Virginia son-in-law TYLER MCGAUGHEY transfer in February 2019 (as soon as dad-in-law Barr was sworn in to head the Justice Department and oversee the ongoing investigations into Trump et al.) to the White House Counsels Office! How much of a CONFLICT OF INTEREST is this? Barr's daughter MARY DALY transferred from her Justice Department job as point person for the Opioid Crisis over to the TREASURY (working under subpoena-defying Steve Mnuchin) to now work with the FINANCIAL CRIMES ENFORCEMENT NETWORK (FinCEN)...just in time for the unfolding revelations of FINANCIAL CRIMES for the Trump Foundation, the Trump Organization, the Kushner Company, committed by Jared and Ivanka, Trump's two adult sons, and Trump himself. ETHICS ALERT!

You are TOTALLY missing the POINT! China has been dominating agriculture markets for eons and spreading poison to all countries. President Trump is playing his trump card and China will soon stop being such a bully.

You must not know much about our trade deficit with China. ($222,000,000,000)

And next time you and your car bounce roughly over a pothole, remember that the money that might have been used to fix the pothole is now being used to bail out the soya bean farmers who can't sell their beans because of the tariffs. Funny thing, the farmers in middle America are the ones who voted for Trump.

Many of our Democrat/Liberal/Socialist friends believe that China only has the best interests of the US in mind and that President Trump is only undermining the best interests of the US with his attempt to lower the $400+ billion trade deficit with the Chinese and stop the theft of technology from American Corporations.
The Chinese Government thanks them for their support in trying to maintain their $400+ billion trade imbalance with the US and is willing to reward those Democrat/Liberal/Socialists in the US who are willing to help them hack into the computers of companies where they are employed.
Just remember: Trump bad, China good.

That’s true. The only thing left for him to try is to convince Americans that soybeans are a good source of proteins. Rebrand.

The progressives via the federal government destroyed agriculture markets in the 1920s-30s when they took over agriculture disabling farmers from setting their own prices and stopping farmers freely doing business with whom they wanted.
