Aid to farmers wouldn’t be necessary if Trump didn’t engage in trade war

I must take issue with Congressman Collins’s justification for President Trump’s proposed 11 billion dollar assistance plan for American farmers. The assistance only became necessary as a direct result of the President’s harmful trade practices.

American farmers don’t want Government Welfare. They want free access to world markets. They can feed the world. They want to feed the world. China wants our pork and beans. Mexico wants our corn.

Farmers make a living. Taxpayers don’t have to fund a short-term bailout. Everybody’s happy.
