  1. President Trump's convoluted negotiation style reflects his so-called "deal making". Uncertainty is this President's style! Know, we don't have a war! Sure, his policies hurt people, a lot of people but maybe, just maybe the situation and circumstances of pain, suffering, torture, and torment will result in bringing the wide world more harmony and peace? What do you think?

  2. Many MAGA farmers are happy cashing their socialist welfare checks. Republicans and Conservatives love socialism when it benefits them , they're enjoying another bailout.

  3. Correction: on the one hand they don't want gov't telling them what to do but on the other hand they do want guaranteed government money and guarantees on favorable policies and minimum coverages in the face of losses… the same things they hate for everyone else… aka welfare.

  4. mid west farmers and east coast farmers have been on the government teet way to long and have got lazy. they throw a fit if they dont get a 70 thousand dollar ford f250 every year.come out west boys the growers out here will show you how to make money on your own.

  5. Trump flushed the farmers reputation down the toilet , elections have consequences. The China market is dead , thanks Dump.

  6. Farmers already have a higher level of suicide than the general populace.
    "(farmers)They don't want the government to tell them what to do"? They don't mind getting subsidies to NOT grow certain crops🤔

  7. I can sorrrrrt ooooooffffff understand some of these farmers voting for Trump in the last election, but if you are still supporting him……..shame on you!

  8. So a few people are noticing that trump has destroyed the country, and will declare MARTIAL LAW and become the official dictator, instead of just the de facto dictator.

  9. well of course he is screwing the America farmers , They didn't vote for him so he could do that to them.
    BUT , all Trump has to do is feed them a few more lies just around election time and LIKE CLOCK WORK they will fall in line and vote the way they are told to , so stop complaining and eat it, like the rest of us .

  10. You bought it own it, drive it, keep it. One part of me wants to be sympathetic and another part of me saying shut your pie hole. You guys are likened to the dog with his bone, saw his shadow in the river, drop his secure bone in the river to get the fiction. In the end ? a big looser. #GreedIsTheWord.

  11. Those republican welfare ranchers need to think before voting. They learned nothing from the Bush fiasco. Can’t fix stupid. Need more welfare?

  12. I guess the farmers didn't read Rick Wilson's book, "Everything Trump Touches Dies." After Trump touched their industry I guess they don't have to.

  13. So , hey farmers, since you love this TRAITOR and STILL SUPPORT him, then you need to suffer like the rest of us. You voted against your OWN best interests. So own it and I feel NO sympathy for you and you DON'T need OUR welfare handouts

  14. Farmers want guaranteed profit doesn't care where it comes from….. Lot of these big farmers ate up the little farmers…. Now the big farmers are getting ate up by corporate farmers.
    .. Trump knows exactly what he's doing

  15. Attention MAGA people : Trump needs our help ! Trump briefings are always near a running helicopter which is just a windmill on its side but louder , Windmill noise cause cancer ! We lost John McCain from Brain cancer and Trump maybe next ! Christian Evangelical , thoughts and prayers , are not enough for the Chosen One ! We must insist : TRUMP MUST GET HIS HEAD EXAMINED ! All true Americans should warn him he is in danger from this , he needs tinfoil under his MAGA Cap ! Trump 2020

  16. Trump is cow dung … no wonder he has the rural vote … they don’t know the difference so they’ll put up with it

  17. Who Believe That 70% Of Farmers Still Supports Trump?
    Media is trying to save trump and is his propaganda machine period.

  18. We tried to warn you farmer that’s trump Is a con man but nooooooooo. Now you may lose the farm because of trump . I have an idea, vote for him again. If you didn’t go bankrupt this time maybe you can file bankruptcy next time. And we can put you on his list :

    1991: Trump Taj Mahal. (Bankrupted)
    1992: Trump Castle Hotel & Casino. (Bankrupted)
    1992: TrumpPlaza Casino. (Bankrupted)
    1992: Trump Plaza Hotel. (Bankrupted)
    2004: Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts. (Bankrupted)
    2009: Trump Entertainment Resorts (Bankrupted)
    2019: American farmers( bankrupted)
    2019 : United States of America ( future Bankruptcy / RECESSION )

    Trump FAIL businesses:

    Trump airline
    Trump ice water
    Trump the game
    Trump casino
    Trump magazine
    Trump mortgage
    Trump steak
    Trump travel site
    Trump comms company
    Trump tower Tampa
    Trump university
    Trump vodka
    Tour de trump
    The New Jersey generals football team
    Trump on the ocean
    Trump network
    Trump radio show
    Trump media
    Trump foundation (fraud)
    American communication network( pyramid scheme)
    Now United States of America

  19. So farmers are traditionally conservative and vote Republican. No matter if they lose the farm,most will vote for Trump in 2020. But they sure don't mind taking my tax dollars for a socialist bailout. What phonies

  20. Farmers drank the Snake Oil Salesman's Tonic and in their delirium for the stupidest reason ever decided "I didn't like her" so i voted for "him" and now they are welfare recipients participating in socialist programs and losing their farms now that's a heavy hangover

  21. I don't feel sorry for these trumpsters they thought they was part of his Elite Circle now they realize they just been played the trump card which means he doesn't care about them all he cares about is his casinos and his hotels you wanted him you got him so stop bellyaching.

  22. When a story is run about farmers and the financial problems they're having, it's never made clear if they are the small family farms that grow the food we eat or large factory farms that produce commodity crops for animal feed and ethanol.

    Farmers overwhelming vote neocon, so I wonder what they are complaining about. They all have been allowed by their political picks to ruin the soil with poor cultivation practices and overloads of pesticides and fertilizer that run off the farms and pollute nearby bodies of water. Animal waste pits overflow and pollute groundwater and the wells of people living nearby. And they've received billions in subsidies from their hero, trump. We should be following the money and be very concerned about the state of our farmland and what is grown on it and what is being done to the soil and environment because loss of farmland could become a national security issue.

  23. boo hoo ,you voted for him how independent are you feeling now,perhaps he'll give you food stamps.But alas he's cutting back on that too

  24. Why did it take to long for the farmers to open there eyes. Your clients will take a while to trust you again. Republicans, GOP didn't care about your future.

  25. I can’t believe farmers voted for the conman he has always lived in penthouses in New York go ahead and vote for the trump again for more years and you will be loosing your farms

  26. Why are farmers only addressing the trade war with China.? Climate change must be a major consideration for anyone in agriculture. With previous considerable flooding and the potential damage from Hurricane Dorian, climate change strikes as a priority that would affect the present and future.
    NASA has been attempting to suggest the US gov't react to environmental damage since the 1970s, DJT is currently only claiming it a hoax because he needs to volunteer something to justify his lack of reaction. The majority of climate deniers are all Republican, by denying all the scientific claims and facts those individuals are able to continue focusing on their greater priority, profits. And with the majority of Republicans being older white guys, what do they care, they'll have died well before they might experience a reason to react.

  27. I've got news for Mr Johnson – nobody cares.
    Most of his members voted against their own economic interests at the last election and will do so again at the next election. They'll do it because, although they know that conservatives will screw them mercilessly, they don't like gays, want prayer in school, don't like "them there educated people", support the military and don't want their guns to be taken away.
    So screw them. There's always someone in the world who will grow food for the rest of us.

  28. The President is ready to play his "TRUMP CARD" He has a hospital bed set up at trump tower where he plans to continue running the TRUMP org. He will fake an attack that will leave him mute. The world order upset as ordered by Putin and TRUMP tower Moscow is coming soon! Boris and Natasha live in our WH-Putin = fearless leader!

  29. Americas farmers and their families are truly one of the back bones of America. This country would not be what it was, without them. IF THINGS DON'T CHANGE SOON, MOST FARMERS/FAMILIES WILL BE RUINED AND BANKRUPT.

  30. China knows is hurting from the sanctions, they had to reduce the value of their currency by 10% last week to keep exporting to the USA.
    However they have a clear strategy, they need to get Trump out of office and get a more China friendly govt. in power. They therefore hit directly at trump voting base closing imports of raw materials from farmers. (Which isn't something a developed country should focus on anyway, a developed country imports raw material and exports finished product).
    The future of the American economy depends on this trade war. If China wins America will lose its position as world dominant power and the whole system will hurt, China in 10 years will be unstoppable as the one belt one road project takes in more EU countries.
    China now is still exposed to USA influence. If the USA wins the trade war the world will know that the USA still has strength and that siding with China isn't the best option yet.
    However China doesn't have voters so they can make their whole country poorer by devaluation of currency in order to keep competitiveness.

  31. I like MSNBC because they will promote breaking down the walls and then we the Mexican people will swarm in and take all the jobs; we work good and hard but we work for cheap, we are just crazy that way. I especially feel bad for the black man because his jobs will be taken first because they are low skill and their unemployment will go through the cantina. Sorry! I like it when the black leaders say to impeach Trump this way the wall comes down and we take all the jobs now being held by blacks after we will take the white jobs, i have sons in college and their friends are there too the will take the skilled jobs, the USA will become ours again. It was taken in 1847. No revolution necessary as the democrats will peacefully do this for us,
    "¡Arriba, Arriba! ¡Ándale, Ándale!"

  32. This what happen when you think that you're better than others and have an Island Mentality. I guess you all will VOTE YOUR best INTERESTS instead of party in 2020. LOL

  33. Another grovelling spineless coward and subservient toady to the orange bozo; total cheapskate seduced by a round of golf.

  34. THEY GOT WHAT THEIRS WISH FOR..MR. TRUMP AND A MASTER AND A PRESIDENT AND A BROKEN PROMISES….AND A LIAR. GOOD LUCK TO FARMERS AND MINERS AND STEELERS FOR THE JOBS TRUMP PROMISED TO THEM .

  35. Lindsey – "You just have to accept the pain." Easy to spit out when the pain isn't his own. As we continue to loses farms and farmers, where is the food going to come from? The pain might yet be ahead of us.

  36. did you ever think that the president of china would be the adult in the room its easy to be a tough guy when your not the one getting hosed ill say it one more time china has 1billion 400 million mouths to feed thats a lot of farm stuff

  37. Mr Johnson you seen like a honest man And I hope you will continue to speak the truth..American business men is smart If China was so bad those business wouldn't be doing business with China.Trump just want bragging rights I along can fix it…while America suffer

  38. Japan almost destroyed Pearl Harbor. Four years later, after a brutal "WAR" all Of Japan was destroyed. You genius' might want to wait until the big bomb is dropped and the war is over before you tell America how the trade war ends. ————–giggles—–fools

  39. Unfortunately The lyin letcherous one is both a kiddy fiddler and consummate lier… farmers must rise up democratically before the pitchforks come out…

  40. All this arguing between good and caring folk is counterproductive when we got a foreign influence program in the White House. I doubt anyone really understands the letcherous lying lil finger except in the context that he’s obliged to PooTin first and himself and then everything else is sour milk and the planet a dead plot of land

  41. Well, you plant the seeds of hatred, idiocy and complete and utter stupidity and what comes out of it: complete chaos. At least they chose Trump. We on the other hand were imposed Comrade Orange by them and the electoral college, so I have NO sympathy for any farmer who voted for him! The part where he started his campaign saying Mexicans were rapists and criminals, did they miss that? Trump says he has built "billions and billions of miles of wall", isn't that why they voted for him? And Mexico paid it all of last month, so what are those farmers complaining about? When you vote for a dumbarse you get the whole package… I mean, we all get the whole package, so STFU!

  42. So if farmers are so independent, then why are they accepting bailout money from the government? I didn't know repugs are for socialism.

  43. Trump’s trade war is a big loser – farmers have lost their markets and have needed subsidies, goods are more expensive and the economy is limping along as a result. China can simply wait out Trump. Trumps is under pressure not China.
    We all agree that something needed to be done re China but Trump’s sledgehammer strategy was never an intelligent approach.

  44. The "Chosen One" never consults with anyone, not even members of own cabinet, who get blind-sided daily with his bone spur-of-the-moment, shoot-from-the-hip decisions. He has said: "I know more than the generals." " l know more about the climate than any one." "I know more about negotiating deals than anyone." "i am a stable genius." " Trade wars are great." The farmers were not consulted beforehand by the Cult Leader when he suddenly, by a wave of his hand, destroyed 35 years of market deveolment in China begun & encouraged by Ronald Reagan. We don't hear all of sudden any more about the "Great" Ronald Reagan by the Trump Cult Party. Why is that?

  45. Old McDonald had a farm, e-i-e-i oh,
    And on his farm they voted Trump e-i-e-i-oh,
    Then old McDonald lost his farm, e-i-e-i-…Nooooo!!

  46. Mr. Johnson,the President was proven stupid when you voted for him. You have your pro-life judges, tax cuts, environmental protection rollbacks and dreams of a beautiful wall. I know you thought if a black man can do that job how hard could it be. Please correct me, but I don't recall the government giving out 160 acres to the newly freed slaves. Trump gave you welfare to prevent the lawsuits that would have cost him legally and politically. As soon as Trump leaves you all are going to sue anyway. Just be white, stop complaining, and NUT UP.

  48. I don't wanna be mean but farmers, let me ask u a question – would u hire a judge, or a cop or ok, a "businessman" to take care of your farm?? No?? Then why did u elect a Conman to run America??? Doh!

  49. And now … for ALL the idiots who think that Trump's trade war is hurting China n making them suffer, take a look at this video … https://youtu.be/J-4Qk_RN_MQ … Tell u what, they sure look a lot richer than YOU n they sure don't look poor n suffering like YOU! Roflmao … u guys are SO dumb, I can't believe it!!! You're the ONLY people in the world who are DUMBER than Trump n his slaves!!

  50. Farmers are conservative, independent and don't like "the government telling them what to do" and yet they will happily take billions in government subsidies per year They are among the largest beneficiaries of the social welfare state which explains a lot about their support for Trump.

  51. Farmer's… I hate to know that you're losing you're way of life but,WE TOLD YOU, KEPT TELLING YOU… TRUMP IS A FAILURE!! If you looked it up yourself instead of the LIES you would have seen for yourself.. Oh well!! I'm all out of thoughts and prayers…

    Like he said , farmers don't want government telling THEM what to do but,these same FARMERS want to tell women what to do with their bodies though… Farmers are just as dumb as the rest, they will vote for Trump again…

  52. i get that the President wants deal with trade deficit what i don't get is why he thought it will take a day or a month to do this? the world is a global village like it or not so if way want to deal with China start by slowly building the capacity of American industry through policies that ensures growth in those industry enabling them to compete with goods from China and over time these industries will over take their Chinese counter parts & instead of insulting African countries try and invest in them to create new markets for the American products given that Africa is working to create an Intra – African trade that will remove barriers and a potential of 3 trillion dollar market

  53. The farmers have no right to complain they voted for this type of winning. They should not be recieved any sort of taxpayer money because real Republicans pull them selves up by their bootstraps.
