kickit Trump shafted family farmers to give trade war bailouts to huge corporate farms
Advertisement
Trump said a trade war was easy to win, I guess if you force small farmers to suffer and give up their farms to big agribusiness and then get lots of political donations from them, like Trump is doing,... you can call that winning. Scream1

This is really terrible what Trump is doing to the little farmers with his stupid AF trade war BS.

Trump shafted family farmers to give trade war bailouts to huge corporate farms instead: report

"President Donald Trump has tried to paper over the disaster his trade war has been causing for American farmers by issuing a $16 billion bailout, paying farmers for the work they lost due to the tariffs — meaning that he is effectively borrowing money from China to pay farmers not to sell their goods to China.

But Trump’s policy is even more disastrous than it looks on paper, according to a new report from the Environmental Working Group.

Of the $16 billion in “Market Facilitation Payments” Trump’s Department of Agriculture appropriated, the group found, 54 percent of it went to just the top one-tenth of farms, with 82 farmers receiving at least $500,000 and many of the recipients actually living in large cities. Smaller family farms, meanwhile, have received very little, with the bottom 80 percent of farmers getting less than $5,000 each — and farmers of color have received almost nothing.

The USDA initially said it would cap payments at $125,000 — but in practice, Trump officials have allowed the richest farmers to get around that limit by having family members who do not do meaningful work on the farm apply for their own payments, double-dipping again and again.

And the next round of payments could be even more skewed. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue has announced that unlike the previous rounds, which paid farmers by the bushel or bale of produce, farmers will now be paid by the acre — meaning that small farms will automatically get less than large farms even if they are more productive or lost more money.

That's right, He Man.
Trump handed out billions to "farmers" (emphasis on the quotation marks). He did this because his China tariffs and the reciprocals back were making him unpopular with them.

Trump sends $26 Billion in checks to his base

Trump's "farmer" bailouts, now up to $26 BILLION dollars, were never approved by Congress. Neither was the tarrifs that made this political payback necessary.

Some farms collect millions, there is widescale abuse.

Hi man

Big fan of your posts

Yes this sh*t was debunked even as far back as Kennedy when he made sure to keep prices for farmers in check he knew the economy depends on them

Nixon helped start all the right wing free market bullshit that trump is ignorant of and thinks trade of free

What a damn moranic

As an American, and as a Liberal.

I think something has to be done about China.

They are stealing IP from Americans.

That has to stop.

Is Trump going about it the right way?

maybe not.


However, he is doing something.



this is the last nice thing I will ever say about Trump.

For a smart guy you have no clue how these things work. Your comments on Venezuela, China, etc. often betray your ignorance and naivete..

I am pleased with Sonny. I got a small farm and I got my support payments.

I will say that the normal support payments sort of went away but I did get the support payment for my beans to make up for the decrease in price due to Xi's boycott.

The super wealthy 1% and huge corporations got 83% of the Trump/Ryan tax breaks.

That's right, the government never sent money to farmers until Trump was president. There wasn't even an dept of agriculture until the China tarriffs.

We need to go back to the Obama years when there wasn't a Dept of Ag.
