Dennis Torgerson: Help went to China, not farmers

A short time ago the U.S. government sent welfare checks that were meant to go to the American farmer to compensate them for their loss in the trade war with China.

A large portion of those welfare checks went to China. The American farmer got little to nothing for their investment in pork, as I understand it.

Please correct me if I am wrong but isn't China the country the occupant is trying to bring to its knees? What am I missing?

Now a second round of welfare checks are being sent to farmers. It looks to me the "great dealmaker" is nothing but fraudulent.

I would like to ask our local farmers who still support the occupant if this is what they envisioned how American is to be made great again.
