Trump’s Latest OBAMA LEGACY SMACKDOWN Just Happened [VIDEO]
President Trump didn’t just energize crowds with his executive order. He also took a firm stance for Wisconsin dairy farmers.
When it comes to milk, Trump promised solutions. And we know one thing for sure- Trump keeps his promises!
Although his plan was to discuss his latest executive order, Trump went beyond his Buy American, Hire American proposal.
He addressed the trade dispute between the US and Canada that has started to boil over.
As the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports:
“We’re going to stand up for our dairy farmers in Wisconsin,” Trump told an audience gathered at tool manufacturer Snap-on Inc. “And I’ve been reading about it. I’ve been talking about it for a long time. And that demands, really, immediately fair trade with all of our trading partners and that includes Canada. Because in Canada some very unfair things have happened to our dairy farmers and others.”
After Grassland Dairy Products of Greenwood notified about 75 Wisconsin farms of canceled contracts, Canadian officials blamed the U.S.
Although Canadian policies are what really changed, the Canadians blamed our dairy farmers for producing too much milk.
Trump said he would start working on a solution with Gov. Scott Walker, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson and House Speaker Paul Ryan.
“We’re going to get together and we’re going to call Canada,” Trump said. “And we’re going to say, ‘What happened?’ And they might give us an answer but we’re going to get the solution, not just the answer.”
Many farmers are encouraged to hear Trump is tackling the issue. Some are hoping Trump can help by ordering the USDA to buy milk surpluses.
“If USDA made purchases for summer food programs, things like that, it would be fantastic,” said Carrie Mess, a dairy farmer from Watertown.
The National Milk Producers Federation thanked Trump for speaking out on the issue. “Canada’s repeated disregard for its dairy trade commitments to the United States has left America dairy farmers enduring the severe and unfair consequences,” the statement said.
So Trump tackles another issue plaguing everyday Americans. Thus, once again Trump undoes the damage done by Obama.
In 2009, Obama signed a presidential memo eliminating a tariff on Israel. The former agreement protected American dairy farmers and raised money for the American economy. Obama’s memo removed import surcharges on dairy products from Israel.
Obama can’t call the memo a free trade effort, either. During that same time period, Israel was blocking the import of many American goods such as orange juice. Thus, Obama was never a friend to the American farmer.
During that same time period, Israel was blocking the import of many American goods such as orange juice.
Just a week shy of the 100-day mark, Trump is undoubtedly the curve-buster in the class of presidents.
Trump has kept promise after promise. In fact, he’s kept so many promises we’ve made a list.
This new order can be added to the checks column. It helps look out for the good of American workers.
While Trump finalizes his plan for dairy farmers, he tightens the reigns on guest worker visas. Also, he requires government agencies to invest in America by purchasing goods and services from U.S. companies. Trump established the bar high for Buy American, Hire American, a policy one might think to be a “no brainer.”
If we could give Trump a report card for his first 100 days, he just made straight A’s for his America First Agenda!
