makes you wonder if moving everything overseas for cheap labor and bigger profits was a bad idea

Like giving birth. It hurts, but than it grows. Look at the employment and wage numbers. We are the world leader in oil production. Trump has done this with no cooperation from either party. MAGA all, MAGA.

China’s pork production is being ravaged by a swine disease. They buy a lot of pork, beef and dog from us to consume. No rice, they have that covered.

Wonder if there will be any Missouri or Kansas farmers stupid enough to plant soybeans this year?

China has moved on, no more unreliable US purchases, 50+% of the US market gone with the blowhard.

Trump 2020 - you Demofuck whiner babies will be forced to get off your lazy ass and earn what you get! I wonder how the Fire union will ever survive since they are the biggest democrate liberal bitches known to humanity, everytime I see a begger on the corner with a cardboard sign it reminds me of KCFD and their union.

Your President is going head to head vs the Dragon. We have all the leverage. We have that power. Expect Trump to win, expect America to win, and expect the Panda to prevail. Xi pissing off a billion Chinese citizens is not in his best interests.

The markets have already weighed in. 42 year low in the grain market. Soybeans are getting killed. Farm delinquencies and bankruptcies are at a 10 year high, matching the levels of the great recession.

In the meantime, China is making new trade deals with countries in South America to replace US products. They don't care. They will just invite Trump to another state dinner and get him to cave on everything else.

In the meantime, MAGA people think a dumbshit spending his day watching Fox News and tweeting is great leadership.

Conservatives have forgotten that tariffs aren't a tax on foreigners. Trump is raising taxes on us. Again.

Wait and see what happens when Russia and China don't buy the next large issue of US Treasury Bonds.
They've been the only significant source of funding for the Deficit spending spree we've been on since Reagan, and the Trillion that was added to the Deficit by the latest insane tax cut for the Elite may have been enough to make them decide to bring us to our knees.
