17. Agree that they are not stupid. I come from a farming community

and things are not going well. Minnesota has had many trading commission meetings with countries all over the world to build markets for their products. They are taking tRump's trade war personally as they see years of work on their part going down the drain. It is also hard for farmers to see their crops rotting in front of them because they have no market in which to sell them. Consumers will also be feeling the pinch in the not too distant future. Grocery bills are already climbing. This is what we get when a stupid know-it-all thinks he can play the international community. Another industry hit will be machining. My trumper sisters family works in farm machinery manufacturing. They are starting to look at their jobs being threatened as well. Cash strapped farmers do not buy new machinery and their overseas customers are not going to be able to pay the increased cost of tariffs and still buy their products. Time will tell if they "get the message".
