U.S. farmers lost one of their biggest customers after China officially cancelled all purchases of U.S. agricultural products, a retaliatory move following President Donald Trump's pledge to slap 10% tariffs on $300 billion of Chinese imports.

"Trump is ruining our markets. No one is buying our product no more, and we have no markets no more."

Farmers [and Rural voters] need to stop voting for Republicans.

C'mon Democrats, if you can't make political hay out of this you deserve to lose in 2020.

Decades of hard work by farmers and legislators to convince China to by our ag products down the toilet.

And now Trump has postponed the increased tariffs. The Great Negotiator got nothing but the farmers lost their markets for the crops. Trump is all mouth, no real plan for anything.

If Trump's idea of 'winning' is po-ing off our allies, starting trade wars, and Tweeting dumb --- schitt night and day, ya, I'm tired of 'winning.'

78% of the farmers say the trade war will ultimately benefit American farmers. This trade showdown with communist China should have been done years ago. We need to stay the course until we get fair trade. Communist China has been ripping us off for years.

China will happily fill the void by trading with Europe, who are tiring of Trump crapping allover them.

See the predicament with Trump and what's he's doing?

Wisconsin dairy farmers' struggle featured on PBS NewsHour
July 16, 2019

In a PBS NewsHour story that aired Sunday, weekend anchor Hari Sreenivasa visited dairy farms in Clark County, Wisconsin, to tell the story of dairy farmers' fight for survival in their struggling industry. He began the piece noting that 2,700 dairy farms went out of business last year and that one-third of those farms were in Wisconsin.

None of whom hurt farmers at all. Ray doesn't realize it but he is a victim. A victim of right wing propaganda. They can demonize anyone they want and they do. If any really rational individual actually examined what "The Squad" actually supports they would discover that they support what is best for America and probably best for people in other nations being persecuted by an American ally. I support "The Squad" 100%!
So many other Americans are so intimidated by the status quo that they can't even think about what is wrong with it. Their brains won't even allow them to question. Their brains know that questioning can bring about penalties, in jobs, in social interaction, even within families. So they go along like "good Germans."

Is china the only market in the whole world? Who was brazil selling beans to last year? Farmers are the biggest pile of people on the government doll.

I might have left out a few.

In case you hadn't noticed, these people are in a cult and nothing will change their minds. As long as trump can make them think he's sticking it to brown people worse than white people, the cult members will support him.

I guess that's why trump is working so hard to make you think they are the new voice of the democrats.

And you fall for it like a chump.

Farmers are a special group of voter: we all need them to survive (i.e. literally; to survive). We need farmers to produce enough food to feed the nation. However, because of bad trade deals, our politicians sacrificed manufacturing (union based and largely democratic) for farming (non union and largely republican). Now that we have lost millions of manufacturing jobs, we are losing many farmers.

If farmers continue to support Trump in 2020 in spite of what he has done to their businesses, the next dem president/congress should not seek to provide them with any support over and above that which will allow them to comfortably feed the nation.
