In Support of Trumps Trade Victory for Farmers

I support President Trumps position that we must do something about Chinas trade tactics. For far too long, China has had the upper hand in our trade deals. Now, due to strength and tough negotiation, we've reached a tentative deal worth cheering for. Up until President Trump came along, our nation has just stood by and watched it happen. Not anymore. President Trump is a man of action, something very rare in Washington. Thanks to decisive action from the administration, China will be purchasing a tremendous amount of U.S. energy and ag products, from here forward. This was all about the negotiation and all about starting from a position of strength. All the "sky is falling" rhetoric that came from the Democrats including Senator Heidi Heitkamp, and her talk-show host brother, didn't do an ounce of good. In fact, it actually hurt our producers by unnecessarily creating fear and destabilizing the markets. It's high time to make China play fair, and it looks like they're finally getting the message. Sadly, yet again Senator Heitkamp was dead wrong and exhibited poor judgement when it came to standing up for America's interests.
