“So many of them are seeing that Trump didn’t help them. He made it worse,” Jasper said. “A lot of people in rural America voted for him, and I understand why they did. They voted for change. Well, be careful what you wish for.”

Soybean farmer Randy Jasper thinks Trump is foolish if he thinks he can count on farmers' support. They feel his trade war right in their pocketbooks.

He promised his "America First" policies would let Harley expand in the US. Instead, his tariff fight with the EU wrecked Harley's European market. They are getting it back by shutting their Kansas City factory and moving production of bikes for Europe to Thailand.

And then there's the matter of Harley Davidson. Trump loves bikers who love him, so invited the company and union leaders to the White House just days after taking office.

Farmers are getting crushed. Soybeans, corn. Even a kidney bean processor is losing money, because of the EU's retaliatory tariffs.

The president who funnels party and taxpayer money to his own properties, who is RIGHT NOW pressuring his government to bring the G-7 meeting to his struggling Miami golf course, is accusing someone else of using his office to get rich. There is a Yiddish word for this, I think.

“watching a full presidential Trump press conference while visiting the US this week I realised how much the reporting of Trump necessarily edits and parses his words,to force it into sequential paragraphs or impose meaning where it is difficult to detect”

Matt, how about Trump trying to get G-7 at Doral. If I missed your condemnation of this, my apologies in advance.

Also, Donald Trump is openly profiting, and trying to profit even more, off being president — WHILE HE IS ACTUALLY PRESIDENT.
