The farmers Donald Trump is trying to buy off with hurriedly enacted new subsidies are going to need a lot more subsidies after this: China has announced it has ended its purchases of U.S. agricultural products completely in response to Trump’s announced new $300 billion in tariffs.

First and foremost, this is a potential economic crisis in the making—at least for American farmers, who have already been struggling in tough market conditions. But it’s also a complete unraveling of Trump’s previous claim that he had negotiated a brilliant new deal in which China would purchase more U.S. farm products, not less.

No worries, though: Since Trump is a habitual liar on all fronts, nobody believed him to begin with.

“I alone can fix it.”~Donald Trump
He sure can, but not in the way they thought.
As far the farmers, we tried to tell them. We tried to tell all of them, and nobody would listen.
They got what they wanted. They all did.
