The New York Times had this to report about the financial aid that will be given to farmers:
The Trump administration is expected to announce on Thursday that it will provide $14 billion in additional aid to American farmers, many of whom are suffering economically from the coronavirus, according to a person familiar with the plans.
President Trump is expected to mention the aid during a campaign event in Wisconsin on Thursday evening. The details of how the latest tranche of money will be deployed are expected to be announced Friday morning.
This would be the second round of aid that the Trump administration delivered to farmers out of the money and borrowing authority that was approved to support the agriculture sector in the economic relief legislation passed by Congress in March.
In April, the Agriculture Department announced a $19 billion aid package to help farmers cope with supply chain disruptions and lost business from hotels and restaurants as a result of stay-at-home orders.
The Des Moines Register wasn’t kept silent and had these details to add:
The federal government will send up to $14 billion in aid to U.S. farmers and ranchers struggling with falling prices, lost markets and other supply chain disruptions tied to the global pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Friday.
“America’s agriculture communities are resilient, but still face many challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said in a statement released Friday morning.
This is the second round of coronavirus assistance President Donald Trump’s administration will send to U.S. farmers. Perdue announced the first $19 billion round in April as the coronavirus roiled the nation’s food supply chain.
“The COVID-19 pandemic continues to create significant market and trade disruptions, and this poses very real challenges for Iowa farmers,” said Iowa Agriculture Secretary Mike Naig. “The agriculture economy will rebound, but it will take time.”
Time after time Trump has shown that he legitimately cares about farmers in America and this is just another example.
I’m sure we all know who the farmers are voting for this November!
