What a messed up frame on this issue by Iowa Press.
So apparently a farmer at a Demcoratic candidate town hall said something like, “we’re being asked to be patriotic…” Unclear exactly what that means, but nonetheless that was how the question was posed to Sec. of Agriculture Mike Naig (R-Des Moines) on Iowa Press. “How long can ‘patriotic farmers” sustain this trade war?’ Patriotism has nothing to do with this. And who is doing the asking? They are being asked to blindly support Trump’s disastrous policies and being told that is patriotic? Not patriotism, but politics as usual.
