  1. Don't feel sorry for these farmers now they're feeling the effects of trumpism they thought they were immune but now when it comes knocking at their door they realize it's affecting them also.

  2. So Republican politicians toute they don't want "Socialism", yet here Trump is using socialism to pacify farmers as his China tariff policy is a complete disaster.

  3. For you wondering why some farmers still support trump… think about the industry they are in… if they were anything but conservative to the core they'd be doing almost anything but farming. What industry is more prehistoric than farming? NONE.

  4. I love the fact that Christopher Gibbs just outlined how Trump could easily give them billions of dollars with a swoop of the pen, and yet cannot get his border wall funded. Gibbs, run for Congress!

  5. Because China buying more soy beans from Brazil.
    Brazilian farmers are burning more of the Amazon to grow more soy beans.

    How a twist web we weave.

  6. Australian Farmers are so grateful to President Trump. We got so much more sales to China this year. It is unreal!
    Keep MAGA!!!

  7. Someone asked Trump, "Aren't you nervous and worried when you took a billion dollar loan from the bank?". His reply speaks volume of the person that he is. He said "It is the bank that needs to be nervous and worry, and not me. The billion dollar is in my pocket". It looks like in this instance, the bank is akin to America. Trump has nothing to worry about. America is the one that need to.

  8. Itโ€™s not just the farmers. What about the truckers who have fewer goods to move? Do they get a check too? The Trump train is more like the CHUMP TRAIN.

  9. It's all fun and games until you loose money. Now that you morons realize your criminal psychopath is screwing you , you are beginning to wake-up and smell the treason. It's too late now.

  10. So… is nobody going to talk about how sharing the country's wealth with the working class (farmers) is a socialist ideology?

    Is nobody going to say that "democratic socialism" is what bailed out the banks and auto industry (which was "bad") but for farmers a 12 BILLION dollar bailout is ok

  11. Taxes payers $$$$$$ coming to the farmers, no worries, no problem…..another 30 billions on the way…….and more for Christmas……

  12. They got exactly what they deserve. They sure didn't mind his policies of locking up small children in cages like animals, sleeping with the enemy and trashing the country so many fought and died for to defend as long as they weren't effected personally. They'd still be supoorting him if everything was coming up roses for them. Whiny people. Zero sympathy.

    MAGA so unfair ..

  13. Isn't he a farmer who should know about growing other crops as well? if soybeans ain't working then start farming other vegetable or fruit in Mexico there is a high demand for avocados just saying

  14. They vote for a conman and are shocked when the conman cons them. BTW Trump is a socialist…take money from one lot of citizens and gives to another lot of citizens. (Farmers)

  15. Our president has been such a loser. I have tried to be open minded with his ideas and way of communication, however I no longer support him. Our farmers should be paid top price. Trump you suck.z I officially do not like or support you in any way.

  16. Come on you voted for him in 2016 and are know crying crocodile tears and I am sure you will all be voting for him again in 202 h3 has ruined your farms what is left๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  17. containment? what did he mean……. well brazil has just cleared some real estate for farming …… this is crazy

  18. Where do you think people on welfare put their money? In their mattress? Agricultural welfare money is no different.

  19. Individual 1 is an utter mess…….he canโ€™t get 5 billion for a wall that Mexico is supposed to pay for yet he has disbursed 12 billion to farmers and is preparing to disburse another 16 billion in welfare. This is mind numbing self inflicted stupidity of the highest order. This is MAGA?

  20. Sorry for your loss, but Republicans only ever vote for smarmy lying pickpockets. Why don't you get off the dead animal dole and grow some food for a change? MORE CANTALOUPE! MORE SPINACH AND KALE! What you're talking about isn't sustainable and it isn't even food. I look out over the soybean fields behind our property and the words that come to mind are dead zoning, not farming.

  21. I have to say, this interview made me realize that farmers are extremely subsidized. I'm not necessarily opposed to subsides for certain populations, but it's funny that conservatives hate subsides but they also seem to live off them. Do they not realize Food Stamps and their farm subsides are two sides of the same coin?

  22. For all those telling this farmer โ€œyou asked for it….โ€, he has my utmost respect for admitting he isnโ€™t on the Trump train anymore- it takes an honorable man to admit he was wrong!

  23. Why in the world would any farmer vote republican? Don't they understand DFL stands for Democratic FARM labor? I grew up on a farm and most or all farmers back then were strictly DFL and it served them well. I can't feel bad for dummies who vote and continue to vote for the Republican Anti-worker party. Keep in mind the Republicans gave us Reagan, Bush and trump – three worst losers in history.

  24. They voted for the Traitor in Chief and are now going bankrupt like their idol. Now they believe in socialism and want my money. Get a job you bums. Isn't that how it goes?

  25. Lol Hmmmm…. Definitely some pretty strange timing there for Hayes' little outbursts of laughter/chuckles lol… Especially the one about 2 minutes in, then another strange yet slightly less inappropriate one at around the 4 minute mark…

  26. The people who keep co-signing that man who is running the United States Of America like all his bankrupted businesses, I bet you all can't sleep at night. And WHY IS TRUMP STILL THERE????? Get him out the W.H. already!! Impeach him already!
