    Just the messenger here relaying the hardcore news: That’s what investigative reports are apparently revealing and I suppose it would be safe to assume that NONE of his BRILLIANT Minds within this Circus Clown Show of a nightmarishly chaotic white house has told Donald that when you impose trade war tariffs on CHINA or any other country, you essentially impose a MASSIVE Tax on Consumer Goods for ALL purchasers to pay right here in the USA and farmers everywhere are susceptible to the inevitable severe detrimental effects: But at this point, what else could anyone possibly expect right ?? UNREAL:

      Trump will lose voters there, most  farmers are in Red States.

      Hard times for farmers got tougher with President Donald Trump’s trade war. Now Midwestern farmers are filing the highest number of bankruptcies in a decade, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of federal data.
      And farmers aren’t hopeful about this year.

      Not so bad for me, urban farmers like me are making record sales. Teaching workshops on it too. Maybe I'll have workshop on how to stay away from the Goverment.

        "Midwest farmers going broke at record rates thanks to Trump's trade war": The FACTS seem to support your claim Castlepaloma: A bunch of  bamboozled farmers in red states might still find some fantastical excuse to vote for Donald again in 2020 if he manages to escape justice which he would need an intervention from SATAN to accomplish, but republicans will inevitably LOSE many who have been driven into an unnecessary financial crisis of a mad man's making: Farms Sold, Families Forced On Welfare, Food Stamps, No Income ALL because of a clueless fool who knows more about how to stuff a bucket of greasy fried chicken in his face than how severely detrimental a Tariff War affects not only farmers, but ALL Americans: INSANITY:

    ALL this BS about Trump's great economy, tell that to our farmers in woe in the heartland who are NOW experiencing a "BLOODBATH of Bankruptcies", one reason is because of his INSANE Trade War Tariffs which every expert knows is simply a MASSIVE Unnecessary Gratuitous Consumer Tax on ALL Americans: UNREAL:

      When these Tariffs started in Canada, Trudeau was most shocked. I warned right off the bat Tariffs was one the greatest reasons US went into a Great Depression.

        What a Stark CONTRAST: Justin Trudeau waving a Nice Big STRONG Hand with Long Fingers, and then there's Donald: Maybe Donald might wanna' consider standing next to somebody else next time, especially if the next photo taken is of him standing next to Big Leroy in Cell Block #0000profit:

        Well Castlepaloma, the main difference between the two is that one is a STRONG Vibrant and Intelligent Leader of Canada named Trudeau who seems to care deeply about his country and people, and the other is what we here in the USA got stuck with until he's finally ousted on his ears, a tired, old worn out, strange looking madman who apparently needed our enemies help to gain access to our oval office, a self absorbed crumb who could obviously care less about us or our families:

          Trudeau is the only politician I actually voted for, mainly to legalize cannabis. Trump lie again about more car traffic death in Colorado over marrijanna. The traffic death went from 52 death. In 2017 it went down to 35 deaths in 2018. Trump totally ignored the undebatable 90% positive results from the marrijanna Colorado formal examination of evidence.

          At over One million dollars an acre what agriculture cop can beat that. As a cash crop it beats corn, soya and wheat combined. There is your future farmers crop. Cannabis makes 50,000 different products and it can replace Fossil fuels.
          There is hope yet.

            No HOPE for the farmers who have already gone under or are in dire financial calamities because of Donald's unnecessary insane Tariff Trade Wars: The ONLY party who WINS in this Cruddy TAXATION DEAL is Vladimir Putin:

            I wonder if anyone at the white house informed him that his Tariffs are simply a MASSIVE Tax on American Consumers? Oh, wait a minute, this is the Illegitimate Trump Admin where Circus Clowns were hired to PRETEND they are cabinet members:

    Did anyone else hear his incoherent nonsensical farcical BABBLING from our white house a few minutes ago? Right On NATIONAL Television?? And WHY hasn't anyone in this catastrophically chaotic white house explained to him what he's doing????

    WAKE Up people, we have a dangerously inept russian backed helmet headed flower flogged clown occupying our oval office who could care less about you, your well being or your families: 2020 is OURS for the RESISTANCE just like we clobbered CONservatives in 2018:

      I read that one yesterday. It doesn't quite jive with the Fed's diving GDP predictions about the economy.


      The relatively small percentage of tariffs to the overall economy misses what China is doing. Their actions are strategic and highly targeted. They also get help from their allies.

      And while we're at it:

        I suppose we will see how things go when we get the report for the second quarter.

        It seems we end up doing better than the predictions...Time will tell...

        I wonder if the second quarter report remains the same or improves, what will be said? We all know what will be said if it drops...

            If you do not understand how tariffs work, then how can anyone trust Trump's reports?

            I worked in 2 international companies back in the 80s. Our clients were from Scandinavia, Europe and South America.

            The first thing you learn working in any international company is why tariffs affect pricing, importation and exportation of goods.

            Our products were mostly exported. So, we passed on the costs of exportation to importers. However, there are costs involved in exporting such as shipping to US ports, shipping offshore, shipping weights and hazardous materials special handling costs.

            In certain countries to offset US exporting tariffs, these countries would use Value Added Tax (VAT) to compensate for taking US goods into their countries at their ports.

            If you understand how VAT works, then you know the businesses who create or manufacture the goods to be exported increase the price of the goods according to their overall production and shipping values

    Farmers are FUMING over Donald's insane trade war tariffs: here's a Smart Farmer: he's "OFF the Trump Train": Not sure who could still possibly be ON the train at this point in time but I guess there will always be a few poor lost souls riding it toward their inevitable financial ruin of a disaster:

    "Ohio Farmer: I Voted For Trump And "I'm Not Going To Be Quiet" About Impact of Trade War"

    "Ohio farmer Christopher Gibbs said that he supported and voted for President Trump, however, decided to get off the Trump train after the Helsinki summit with Russian president Vladimir Putin. In an interview with CNN's Kate Bolduan, Gibbs said Trump is using terms like "patriots" to describe farmers hurt by the trade war with China because he wants them to "be quiet."

      Jake, there was a report this morning about Maine's lobster fisherman losing a 16,000,000 lb contract with China due to the Cretin's tariffs. Many are afraid they'll go under if the tariffs continue. Some of these people have been in the business for generations.

      So not only the farmers are suffering from these tariffs. They affect many other business owners of all walks of life.

        I grew up in that part of the country Randy and I have no doubt Donny's insane trade war tariffs will have a severe detrimental economic effect on the New England seafood industry which is their bread and butter commodity: Financial DESTRUCTION all in the name of a sick 72 year old lame carnival barker charlatan who according to investigative reports, LOST over 1 BILLION Dollars during a 9 to 10 year period and who knows about other financial gruesomness:

        I guess now we know why he's willing to send any number of white house fools to jail in order to desperately protect the secrecy of his "ROYAL Tax Returns":

        The encouraging part of the story that I posted in my last comment is that the farmer who will obviously suffer financial ruin unless Donny is removed, apparently came to his senses long before the tariffs hit him, he STOPPED supporting Donny after witnessing Trump's SHOCKING exhibition of Cowering ALLEGIANCE to Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on global television which was nothing short of abominable:

        If it LOOKS, Acts and QUACKS like a Putin Puppet it probably is and I don't know WHY there are still some individuals who refuse to accept the obvious right in front of their noses:

      The only positive thing that would come out of a serious recession is that the states who contribute the most to his Republican states will not have the fund to bail them out, yet again.

      Every Republican president since Warren Harding has had a 2nd term recession except 2: Hoover will always be blamed for the Great Depression he caused by pandering to Wall Street speculators.

      GHWB had only one term because of the carry over of the Reagan 2nd term recession into his one and only term of office.

      Wouldn't you think by now Republicans would wake up and realize their dumb ideas of trickle down don't work? 6 Presidents ALL Republicans and ALL ending their presidencies with a recession.

      And all for the same reason: Handing out tax cuts and tax subsidies like candy to the richest 1% and Corporations.
