The best way for Trump to help farmers and ranchers would have been to not start a trade war with China. However, now that he has a big trade war going, Trump is now proposing giving billions to help struggling farmers and ranchers. My question is: Are the billions of dollars to help farmers and ranchers borrowed money? From China? To be added to the already astronomical national debt? If so, it's an odd way to "make America great again".

CNBC: Key GOP senators rip Trump's farm bailout: 'America’s farmers don’t want to be paid to lose'

* Republican senators condemned the Trump administration's recently announced plans to bail out U.S. farmers hit by crippling tariffs on their goods.

* “This trade war is cutting the legs out from under farmers and the White House’s ‘plan’ is to spend $12 billion on gold crutches," said Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse.

* Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker called on the Trump administration to "reverse course and end this incoherent" tariff and said the administration was "offering welfare to farmers to solve a problem they themselves created."
