Trump is Bringing Belittled, Battered American Farmers to the Front of the Stage
President shows genuine respect for America's agricultural workers
President Donald Trump brings genuine, razor-sharp instincts to the political picture and it's something his "rivals" simply cannot compete with.
Nowhere was his vision more obvious than during his appearance in Bakersfield, California in February this year.
President Trump was in the Golden State signing a bill to clean up the junk science, such as federal "research" on water for the parched Central Valley.
Better still, the president ordered the feds to give California's Central Valley farmers the water for their farms that they already paid for.
According to Politico:
"What they're doing to your state is a disgrace," Trump said.
"After decades of failure and delays in ensuring critical water rights for the people of the state, we are determined to finally get your problems solved."
The official water "record of decision" was signed Wednesday, outlining endangered species rules for California's main water hub.
Central Valley politicians have railed for years against water restrictions intended to help salmon and smelt that inhabit the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers and Delta further north.
It came at a time when a tape came out of Democratic standard-bearer Michael Bloomberg belittling American farmers as not having much "gray matter."
Billionaire Bloomberg also added a smarmy claim that "I could teach everyone in this room how to farm." Really, Mike?
The video of Trump's retort, honoring the farmers, and getting the farmers' roaring support in return, was a thing of beauty:
What was most wonderful was how Trump yielded the podium to several farmers, allowing them to speak the truth they knew with great eloquence.
Since when has a U.S. president allowed the little guys themselves, dressed as they've just come off the farm, authentic as can be — no Hollywood stylist could do as well — to come out and speak their truth?
Here are some screenshots of the real American farmers Trump brought forward:
These are the same people Mike Bloomberg wrote off as hopeless simpletons, according to American Thinker.
And all real, authentic as possible, not the fake characters planted in audiences at Democratic rallies.
Their presence not only added some serious thrust to Trump's argument for being fair to farmers — which California hasn't been — but also elevates Trump, who now stands as a champion of working-class America, stealing the left's thunder.
If there's any question as to whether Trump would win re-election, this appearance put such a notion out of its misery.
This was exactly why Trump always wins.
