12. Trump delivers a sextuple (or more) whammy to farmers.

* Chinese retaliatory import duty on soybeans, ethanol and pork.
* Farm equipment and machinery prices rising due to steel tariffs.
* Healthcare costs rising and will get worse, and many rural clinics are closing.
* In time, their taxes will go up substantially due to the Repug's tax bill.
* Farm worker costs will go up due to loss of immigrant labor.
* Borrowing costs may go up further, as FED raises rates.
(I'm sure several more can be added)

But man, how they love those MAGA ball caps..............
