‘We Lost $1.72 Billion This Morning Alone’: ‘Devastated’ Soybean Farmers Lash Out At Trump

"That unfortunately doesn’t lend any comfort to the hundreds of thousands of soybean farmers who will be affected by these tariffs. This is no longer a hypothetical, and a 25 percent tariff on U.S. soybeans into China will have a devastating effect on every soybean farmer in America."

  1. No chinese tariffs or trade disputes for canada & china. They’re both doing TPP now. So Canada will say thanks to the US for ceding its market share to Canada on grain seeds. Ceding seeds, get it? haha. Doubt the US gets the huge chinese market back again if they lose it to canada. Really, really stupid move!

    Cdn farmlands are massive and because they haven’t begun seeding yet, they can plant more soybean instead this year and take US market share. Perfect timing/opportunity for Canada and it mitigates the impact on consumers in China, so I think it’s clear that:

    Winner: Canada
    Loser: USA
    Neutral: China

    Tired of winning yet?

  2. Gosh, wonder which Trump-enabling political candidates all these bean farmers voted for over the years?

  3. Jeff Bell

    I am honoured to join this group of commentators. I was also very impressed by the statesman-like comment from the President of the ASA. Kick out Trump and promote the President of the ASA to POTUS.

  4. It’s your money. Look in the mirror. There’s an election coming in November that could help you to rectify the gross negligence that represents these uninformed and egotistical “Tea Party” policies. Will you re-elect the same old callous millionaires that you’ve stuck by all these years? Will you blindly cast your ballot for party allegiance and partisan snickering and discard the fiber of the candidate or the needs of the country? When the dust settles in November and nothing has changed you’ll know who’s to blame for your losses.
