“North Dakota farmers looking for answers amid tariff uncertainty,” is the title of an article posted Thursday afternoon by GrayDC. Google the title to see the entire story and video.
The bad news
“Worst case scenario, you could see farmers losing their farms,” said Jeff Mertz, president of the North Dakota Grain Growers Association.
Mertz is in Washington trying to find solutions in this time of confusion. One of his stops was the Mexican Embassy.
“They’re no different than us. They’re just sitting across the border,” Mertz said .
The bad news with spin
The article continues: (Heidi) Heitkamp’s opponent in the North Dakota Senate race is Congressman Kevin Cramer, R-N.). Cramer says the situation will improve for farmers.
“I think you have to give this president a lot of credit for using the tools and the leverage that he has at his disposal to try to get a better deal for American business including American farmers,” Cramer said.
Cramer says a new trade deal negotiated by the White House will be beneficial for his state, but there’s no certainty when, or if, this will happen.
“The problem is when you have a long game plan and there’s short term, potential short-term pain, we don’t have a very high pain threshold in the United States of America,” Cramer said .
Yes, we need to give Donald Trump, the unregistered sex offender, a lot of credit for taking a hammer to our allies and using American farmers as pawns. A nonmegalomaniac might have had the trade professionals in our government negotiate with other nations, as in the norm.
“But there’s no certainty when, or if, this will happen,” Kevin says.
Farmers love it, when there’s no certainty, whens, or ifs. Just ask one.
Cramer has no clue about any actual plan the mad king might have in his soft brain, or whether it will be beneficial to the state. Nobody does. Trump doesn’t even know what’s going to come out of his mouth from minute to minute and only cares about himself. Just ask Puerto Rico.
We only lost thousands of Americans in Puerto Rico because Trump has a firm grasp of his job requirements and reality.
But Kevin blindly follows the fluffy racist, and defends him, no matter what. So many lies, but Donnie only appeared in three softcore porn films, so that’s good.
The ag sector of our state gets tossed under the combine.
