Help Move Georgia Forward
According to a new study featured in the Valdosta Daily Times, Georgia farmers have suffered substantial financial losses due to Trump’s botched response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The study shows that 82% of farmers have seen revenue loss, with respondents predicting an annual loss on average expected to be short nearly $50,000.
This news comes as Donald Trump admitted on-the-record that he worked to conceal the true threat of coronavirus from the American people — a decision that has cost an untold number of lives and caused devastating economic harm.
“Georgia farmers are hurting because Donald Trump didn’t take action when he could have, and knowingly downplayed this pandemic. Even before COVID hit, farmers’ debt piled up and some went bankrupt because Trump put his reckless trade war ahead of American agriculture,” said Maggie Chambers, spokeswoman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “The economy might be working for Donald Trump and his friends, but it certainly isn’t helping families across rural Georgia who still haven’t gotten relief. We can’t afford four more years of this president’s incompetence, and Election Day can’t come soon enough.”
