President Donald Trump’s farm belt popularity likely took another hit Friday with news that Wisconsin farmer loan delinquencies hit an 18-year record high in June.
The past-due loans are a serious sign of the financial struggles taking a toll on farmers amid Trump’s trade war with China that he insisted would be easy to win.

The share of farm loans that are long past due rose to 2.9% at community banks in Wisconsin as of June 30, according to a Reuters analysis of loan delinquency data gleaned from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. That’s the highest rate in comparable records that go back to 2001.

Rural support was critical to Trump’s presidential victory, but it’s unlikely to hold if voters lose their farms and livelihoods to the trade war. Wisconsin is a battleground swing state that went for Trump by fewer than 23,000 votes. He won Michigan by fewer than 11,000 votes.

Trump has arranged a mammoth $28 billion subsidy from taxpayers for farmers to help them survive the trade war, but many say it won’t be enough to make up for markets they have lost — possibly forever.
Another critical misjudgment by Trump — his decision to grant 31 refineries waivers allowing them to dodge corn-based ethanol requirements — is also alienating farmers.

Aides spelling out farmer anger over the waivers told a stunned Trump last month that he has a “problem” in Iowa, Reuters reports.

Former Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, now U.S. ambassador to China, told Trump then that his loyal farmers won’t stand for policies favoring the oil industry at their expense, sources told Reuters. Branstad reportedly showed Trump a map of counties that had flipped in his favor in 2016 but were now considered at risk for the next election.

South Dakota’s Republican Gov. Kristi Noem and Minnesota’s Democratic Gov. Tim Walz fired off a joint letter to Trump earlier this week complaining that the waivers have triggered an increasing number of renewable fuel plants closing or slowing production. “We are extremely concerned about your administration’s actions to continue to grant small refinery hardship waivers,” the letter notes.

Rural suicides in the U.S. have climbed significantly in recent years, and farm leaders and mental health care providers say the financial toll of Donald Trump’s trade war could contribute to the tragedy.

An official of the National Farmers Union warned earlier this year that financial stress, including the added burden of disappearing markets in the trade war, appear to be taking a toll on farmers’ mental health. 
“It’s been insane,” Patty Edelburg, vice president of the organization that represents some 200,000 families said on Fox News in May. “We’ve had a lot more bankruptcies going on, a lot more farmer suicides.”

She placed concern on financial stresses squarely on the dwindling China market in the trade war.

“We have more commodities, more grain sitting on the ground right now because we lost huge export markets,” she said. “We’ve lost export markets that we’ve had for 30 years that we’ll never get a chance to get back again.” 

A new survey published this month in JAMA Network Open covering the years from 1999 to 2016, leading up to when Trump took office, found that the rate of suicide among Americans ages 25 to 64 rose by 41 percent in that time. Rates among those living in rural counties were 25 percent higher than people in major metropolitan areas.

Researchers suspect the increase is related to poverty, lower incomes and underemployment. “Those factors are really bad in rural areas,” study author Danielle Steelesmith, a postdoctoral fellow at Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center, told NBC.

The study also found that counties with high levels of social fragmentation — based on the levels of single-person households, unmarried residents and transient residents — and a high percentage of veterans had higher rates of suicide. All of those factors were more pronounced in rural counties.

And farmers have voiced concern that Trump’s trade war could exacerbate tough financial conditions for them. Minnesota soybean farmer Bill Gordon told CNN earlier this year: “With these added tariffs, farmers are not getting their [credit] lines renewed, banks are coming in and foreclosing on their farms, taking their family living away, and it’s too much for some of them. We have seen a definite increase in the suicide rate and depression in farmers in the U.S.”

Wisconsin had a record 915 suicides in 2017, many of them farmers under financial stress. Net farm income has plunged 50 percent in six years.

Farm help organization Farm Aid reported a 30% increase last year in calls to its hotline.
The calls and “our work with partners around the country confirm that farmers are under incredible financial, legal and emotional stress. Bankruptcies, foreclosures, depression and even suicide are some of the tragic consequences of these pressures,” said a statement from the organization.

“America’s family farmers — reduced in numbers since the farm crisis of the 1980s — have approached endangered status. ... At Farm Aid, we spend our time on the phone with anxious farm families who cannot make ends meet, and who will not be able to improve their situation simply by working harder. Confusion and lack of resolution on policies like trade, immigration and healthcare accelerate the crisis.”
Matt Rosmann, a therapist who helps suicidal farmers, blames the stresses of surviving on the land for farmers who can’t take it anymore. Low farm prices, the “prolonged recession in agriculture,” flooding and the Trump administration are all causing problems, he wrote in an April column in The New Republic. “Farmers are becoming dismayed about the tariffs.” 

A Morning Consult and American Farm Bureau Federation research poll published in April found that 91% of farmers and farmworkers said financial issues are affecting their mental health. About 87% of those surveyed said they fear losing their farms.

So now the stable genius will have to deal with another possible international crisis.

Turkey does not like trump anyhow, so they are in position to start making demands, especially since trump has his mitts full with Syria, Isis, Iran, Venezuela, Russia and China.

Watching and listening to trump stumble, bumble and fumble his way around is just so damn amusing

so he stumbles and bumbles at least he is attempting to correct the stupidity of the last four presidents.

Trump is now under fire for raiding FEMA funds for the wall. The point is being made by FEMA that disaster relief could be delayed if they run out of money until congress authorizes more. Trump supposedly only grabbed a couple hundred million. FEMA is still sitting on over $20 Billion that was allocated for Puerto Rico.

Sounds like FEMA needs a bit of an accountability audit.


Why give them another penny they steal it as fast as it comes in. We spent more on PR than we did all the other parts of the nation and all you do is cry about something anything that you think makes Trump look bad. And every time it bites you in the ass. Now you should be embarrassed and ashamed to get on opp we all know how foolish you are.

MR: most ALL politicians are crooks -and this current round of republicans take the cake. When have you seen such hypocrisy, lying, and cronyism? At least two republicans known for their concrete stance on 'abortion' were busted trying to force their 'mistresses' to have abortions. Trump lies as fast as he can breath, and is robbing the taxpayers every time he goes golfing at one of his clubs. Reports say Trump has told over 11,000 lies since being in office....and you have the audacity to point fingers at the dems? You should be ashamed of yourself because that's pretty sad.....and pathetic.
