Telling Iowans he has delivered for them on direct farm aid, trade and ethanol, President Donald Trump told a crowd in Des Moines on Wednesday that some farmers are making more money under his aid programs than they would selling their crops. He also warned of an economic collapse if his rival, Democrat Joe Biden, is elected.

... President Donald Trump told a crowd in Des Moines on Wednesday that some farmers are making more money under his aid programs than they would selling their crops ...

Wait, what???

I had thought Republicans were against aid for the unemployed because they (the unemployed) would then get more money via the aid than they would if they worked, and would not want to work.

Now Pres Trump is calling the farmers getting more in aid than they would get if they grew crops a feature?

I was driving and listening to NPR Wednesday morning and they were interviewing an Iowa farmer.

He's voting for Trump. Despite acknowledging that he's worse off today than 4 years ago, his defense for voting for him is "The devil you know is better than the devil you don't" implying that Biden scares him more than Trump.

Which is insane. Did Clinton or Obama do worse to him than Bush or Trump?

And Biden is a moderate democrat who this farmer has no reason, IMO, to fear him.

The big issue I have with farm aid is that US tax payers are subsidizing food for the world, when they could just raise food prices and subsidize US citizens directly.

Why do both parties love farm socialism that enables cheap foreign labor that takes US jobs?

Farm subsidies help destroy US manufacturing.

Don't expect any of this supporters to whine about "soshulizm" in this instance.

Well obviously not - socialism to them is when some one they don't like gets government assistance.
