A group of soybean farmers who support President Donald Trump said Saturday they would be willing to suffer “to the death” economically for his trade war.
“I’m a good American, I believe that we all have to toe the line,” one farmer from a panel interviewed for a Saturday segment on CBS Evening News said. “Am I willing to take my lumps for the benefit of the entire country? Yes, I personally am.”
When pressed by the interviewer on how long the farmers could continue to deal with the economic impact of Trump’s tariffs, another farmer responded: “Well, the Scottish in me says, to the death.” Another farmer smiled approvingly in the background.
