    Not sure where you got the information he banned opiates. Opiates are illegal for anyone that doesn't have a script,.been that way long before the current President.

    You might want to rethink your "news" source

    I’m pretty sure he was mocking the lockstep stupidity of Trumpsters, as a herd.

    And he did it by making the sort of baseless ridiculous claim that Trumpster make here every day.

    Just the other day, a Trumpster blamed Obama for the inflatable spare tire in his car.

    Never mind that inflatable spare tires first appeared in the CamaroFirebird GM pony cars in 1966, when Obama was five years old.

    Not sure why anyone would "blame" the former President for a spare tire.

    With that said....I based my post on the data presented in the OP

    The giveaways to china did not take place in 2 years but rather over a 25 year period

    So the takebacks will need more time to show results also

    The shame is that liberal globalists are putting up so much resistance that it will take longrr thsn it should have

    Why because Corn and Soybean prices are going up and expected to sky rocket by years end due to nonplanted acres this year. I participated on an American Grain conference last week and the bottom line this years corn crop is barely going to America's corn needs this year much less the exports needed. What is expected is that the previous crops will finally be wiped out creating a shortage and fire up prices. It's been needed for a long time and gives the farmers a reset and the markets are agreeing with the surge in prices.

    Seems to me if you don't have any beans to sell it doesn't make much difference what the price is.

    There's a lot of things that you do not see, but it's right there in the very image used in your article, the cost of imports since the tariffs were implemented have gone up. Hence why so many businesses are against these taxes increases

    I suspected this was the case when I saw that despite the increase in revenues to the US Treasury that US consumer price increases remain below the Fed's benchmark.

    Someone is paying those tariffs and clearly it is NOT the US Consumer.
