Listen: Joe Biden, Donald Trump And Iowa discussed on The Roni Deutch Radio Show
"Them a lot there. Two things that are really crushing farmers right now at this moment, if we freeze this moment in time, there are two things. Number one, the Chinese tariffs are really hurting farmers because for the soy, farmers for the corn, farmers and most of the farmers who farm corn in Iowa and Illinois. They're really doing it. It's more livestock corn as well as ethanol. And what's happening is China's saying, well you know, because of these tariffs will we'll just buy from Brazil instead. So that's hurting their ability to sell this export. Number two, is flooding there has been substantial flooding along the Mississippi River so it'd be in the eastern portion of Iowa. And a lot of the corn growers can't even grow, their crops able to get seeds in the ground Biden has been saying is a lot of this has to do with climate change. Something that the president has refused to deal with. So that's kind of how Joe Biden was hitting him on both ends. Now, Donald Trump defending his agricultural approach saying that, look, he's just approved sixteen billion dollars in aid for these farmers that will help them kind of get over this hump with tariffs and saying that he's also loosened some of the restrictions on ethanol previously, you couldn't use e fifteen gasoline during the summer months. A lot of environmental groups says, say it creates more smog, but he says that, you know, loosening these restrictions that allowing the sale for twelve months of the year is going to be good for the farmers and keep them up on their feet.

Coming up, if it's true that Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, are the key states you're going to be busy over the next year or so boy, here"
