GOP senator pans Trump's aid to farmers as 'very bad policy'

By Alexander Bolton - 05/15/19 11:46 AM EDT
 

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), a leading member of the Senate Finance Committee, is warning that President Trump’s plan to provide $15 billion in assistance to farmers hurt by the escalating trade war with China is “very bad policy.”

“It’s a very bad policy,” he told a group of reporters in his office. “Think about what we’re doing. We’re inviting this retaliation that denies our farmers — the most productive farmers on the planet — the opportunity to sell their products overseas and then we say, ‘Don’t worry, we’ll have taxpayers send you some checks and make it OK.’ That’s a very bad approach."

Trump on Monday announced his administration will provide $15 billion in assistance to farmers hurt by the escalating trade war with China, which this week increased tariffs on $60 billion in American exports.

Maybe small businesses affected could also get subsidies to account for increase in raw parts.  Metals and components.
AG William Barr: "I'm recused from that matter because one of the law firms that represented Epstein long ago was a firm that I subsequently joined for a period of time."

Alexander Acosta Labor Secretary resigned under pressure concerning his "sweetheart deal" with Jeffrey Epstein.  He was under consideration for AG after Sessions was removed, but was forced to resign instead.
