    Those sore loser farmers don't realize they are making America great again.

    "The U.S. government rolled out an aid program .... $12 billion - to help farmers absorb the cost of the trade war."

    The sad thing is its a double loss. Loss of grain and loss of taxpayer's money to to aid the farmers. It's a real trump boondoggle.

    No, no, Socialism is when Democrats do something that causes economic problems. This one was done by Republicans. Totally different.
