'Our pleas have fallen on deaf ears': Michigan farmers who supported Trump blast tariffs destroying

'Our pleas have fallen on deaf ears': Michigan farmers who supported Trump blast tariffs destroying their livelihoods
Tom Boggioni 13 JUL 2018 AT 15:37 ET

In an interview with farmers in Michigan who are seeing the agricultural tariffs imposed by President Donald Trump possibly destroy their livelihood, the Detroit News reports they can’t even get their congressional representatives to stand up for them.

According to David Williams, a fifth-generation soybean farmer in Elise, Michigan, the 25 percent tariff imposed by China in retaliation for the president’s tariffs is killing the agricultural sector.

“Nobody wins in a trade war,” said Williams, he 67-year-old president of the Michigan Soybean Association. “We’re not going to win. China’s not going to win. In the meantime, soybean farmers are just hurting.”

Williams pointed the finger directly at President Donald Trump, who he believes was put in the White House by rural mid-westerners like himself.

4. reap what you saw

the good thing they are seeing that trade war is purely trump’s creation and no one else is involved so they can’t blame others anymore. Their reps won’t do shit so will see how it may affect 2018 elections.

8. Where's my violin?

Sorry you were so gullible to believe that Republicans cared about you, but you're on your own buddy.

However, there's an election coming up and you could redeem yourselves by checking the boxes next to Democrats. If you don't, then you truly are one stupid individual.

9. "Hope this is what you wanted"

"Hope this is what you had in mind
Hope this is what you wanted,
'Cause this is what you're getting
I hope you're choking
I hope you choke on it"
