Why, Iowa? Why?

“President Donald Trump’s trade war with China sent soybean prices to 10-year lows just as new steel tariffs drove up the cost of equipment and devoured the year’s profits.
 
“As soon as the tariffs were put on steel, the cost of a new grain bin went up 15-25%,” he says, pointing toward a massive steel container of corn. “So things are already tight and if you’re thinking about buying a grain bin, you’re probably not going to do it now.”
 
Yet he refuses to criticize the policies of a President who flipped Iowa from blue to red with the help of farmers.”

In my family there were a lot of farmers and few of them would have fallen for Trump’s lies. Trump lies about EVERYTHING, folks! Think for yourself. Check out the numbers. You and your descendants are going to pay for Trump’s generosity to his rich friends. He’s willing to beset millions of people just like you to further implement his weird policies. He’s betrayed the country to the Russians. What more evidence do you need that he’s not your friend?

Come on Iowa! Think for yourself. Don’t believe anything Trump repeats ad nauseam. A wall won’t keep out any determined individual or gang. He doesn’t make deals. He breaks them. He’s actively trying to destroy the climate that makes Iowa so productive. Remember the occasional drought? Expect more of them if Trump keeps supporting coal and big automakers and big oil.
