Trump Goes Full Dictator ‘The Best Thing to Ever Happen to the Farmers Is Me!’
Donald Trump bashed former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday, with the two about to give dueling speeches in Iowa. Trump also declared himself the best thing to ever happen to farmers.
Reports suggest that Biden will use a campaign rally on Tuesday to blast Trump over his trade wars and call the president an “existential threat” to the country. As he left the White House to head for his own event in the Hawkeye State, Trump slammed Biden as “a loser,” adding that “Obama took him off the trash heap.”
“Now it looks like he is failing, it looks like his friends from the left are going to overtake him pretty soon,” Trump said. “When a man has to mention my name 76 times in a speech, that means he is in trouble. Now, I have to tell you, he’s a different guy. He looks different than he used to. He acts different than he used to. He’s even slower than he used to be. So I don’t know.”
Trump went on to tout his poll numbers and accuse Democrats of collusion and obstruction, then eventually returned to his attacks on Biden.
"The best thing that ever happened to the farmers was me . . .the farmers are my best friend. Nobody has treated the farmers better than Donald Trump," says, um, demented Donald Trump, who has single-handedly screwed farmers more than frost and crop-ruining parasites. #IMPEACHNOW

After his rail against Biden, Trump quickly segued into talking about tariffs and farmers, and actually said, with a straight face, “the best thing to ever happen to farmers is me.”
