Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “‘Sticking with Trump’: President praises farmers’ ‘fortitude’ in surviving trade war”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Trump praised America’s farmers on Sunday night for sticking with him during tariff wars that led to last week’s hard-fought trade deals with China, Mexico and Canada, and he joked that his reward was to be impeached by Democratic “lunatics.”

“We’re achieving what no administration has ever achieved before,” Mr. Trump told the American Farm Bureau Federation’s 101st annual convention in Austin, Texas. “And what do I get out of it? I get impeached, that’s what I get — by these radical Left lunatics. But that’s okay — the farmers are sticking with Trump.”

The president’s impeachment trial begins in earnest in the Senate on Tuesday. But Mr. Trump won’t be in Washington — he plans to travel to an economic conference in Europe to work on more trade agreements.
