The Joe Biden gaffes just keep on rolling in as he makes his way through Iowa. After failing to mention that his son, Hunter Biden, “made some real money,” talked about “ShopRite stores,” and promised to rejoin the “Paris Peace Accord,” the 2020 Democrat’s latest gaffe is sure to rile up Iowa farmers.
Talking about the future of ethanol and trade policy, Joe Biden made it clear that it was “wrong” to talk about Iowa corn.
“This ridiculous war he has going on with China in a trade war, we’re arguing about the wrong thing, we should be arguing about they’re stealing intellectual property, not the fact that we have a market to sell corn.”
For years, China has manipulated the price of crops, hurting farmers across the country. In keeping his promise from the campaign trail, President Trump has taken the fight for fairer trade deals for our farmers straight to China – yet Joe Biden not only thinks it’s ridiculous, but he thinks we shouldn’t talk about the corn market in the state that ranks first in its production.
Bottom line: While President Trump continues to fight for the best deal for our farmers, Joe Biden not only continues to downplay the threat our farmers face as a result of China’s underhanded tactics, but he also overlooks our farmers and their contribution to Iowa’s ag industry. It’s no wonder farmers continue to support President Trump.
