The people that grow and raise the food we eat is receiving well deserved financial aid. From the government. The "government" is actually the taxes we Americans pay. I have no objection.

What we should take away from these articles is:

"If the U.S. economy is doing so well then why are bankruptcies up in the farming community and the government giving out financial aid?"

"The payments are the second part of a three-tranche $16 billion aid package announced in May to compensate farmers for the U.S.-China trade war."

In these trade wars it's "look here, don't look here" because China does not pay the U.S. anything. The U.S. Consumer pays for everything. This is all smoke-and-mirrors.
