I just read an article about the big jump in farm foreclosures in the Midwest - places like Iowa, Minnesota and my home state of Wisconsin - places that went for Trump in 2016. It sounds like many farmers were hanging over the precipice and his trade policies/tariffs were the thing that kicked them over. I definitely do not take any joy from this. There is no "they got what they deserved" from me. I believe they are good, hard working people. They were sold a bill of goods by Trump: vote for me and I'll take care of you. He made promises that he never intended to keep. It's really sad. These farmers are going to lose everything. Trump could declare bankruptcy whenever he wanted to because he was rich enough to never truly feel any pain. I just hope those impacted by his policies will remember when they head to the polls in 2020 - and I hope the other side can provide them with a candidate who truly is better.
I'm originally from Saskatchewan, which is still predominantly an agricultural province, and I admit to having mixed emotions about farmers. When times are good, they go on about being a business and that government needs to get out of the way and let the market do its magic. When times are bad, then they're part of Canada's heritage, it's about family and tradition and noble toil, and government has an obligation to keep the family farm alive for future generations. I want to be sympathetic—hell, my dad grew up on a farm and several of his brothers farmed their entire lives—but they exhibit the same mentality of big business: privatize the profits, socialize the losses.
In NZ when farming prices are good you hear about the farmers propping up the economy buying new cars, holiday homes by the beach etc.. but as soon as there is a weather event (err hello) they are screaming for government handouts.
How about you pay back last winters hand out before you buy a new car.
Saskatchewan joke: What's the difference between a jet engine and a farmer? The jet engine stops whining when it lands in Hawaii.

Accusing Jews of dual loyalty? That's a vile slur!
Accusing Muslims of dual loyalty? Nah, that's cool.

And yet there's a long tradition of blaming [pick a group, any group] and claiming they aren't true Americans. You people with your compassion and welcoming views, you're the freaks.
