American farmers bet on our President and are about to be rewarded BIGLY for doing so. The past three years haven’t been easy for them. They have been caught in the middle of the fight between our country and China. Throughout everything, they never lost faith that our President and our country would win. They are about to reap the benefits in the foreseeable future.

Support for President Donald Trump among American farmers is on the rise, according to a new poll released this week.
According to the latest Farm Journal Pulse Poll, which featured responses from 1,286 farmers, President Trump received an approval rating of 83 percent, a point higher than the previous poll. Only 18 percent disapprove of President Trump. Since Farm Journal’s tracking of Trump’s support from farmers in recent months, the latest poll marks his highest approval.
“Of note is the strongly approve category went up three percentage points from an already lofty (December) number and his highest overall approval ratings ever,” said Pro Farmer policy analyst Jim Wiesemeyer.
“That says the president’s approval is rock-solid,” Wiesemeyer added. “With the recent upbeat news on USMCA and the Phase 1 accord with China, the ratings will likely remain firm ahead.”
Farmers who stated they “strongly approve” of President Trump rose to 64 percent in January, up from 61 percent at the end of 2019. A mere 19 percent said they “somewhat approve” of President Trump’s performance, while only three percent said they “somewhat disapprove.”

China has some serious problems on the horizon.
From the article linked above:
According to data compiled by the Chinese government and released by its National Bureau of Statistics on Friday, the birth rate in 2019 fell to a level not seen since 1961.
The South China Morning Post saw the birthrate decline as “within the expectations of many veteran demographers who for years called for the Chinese government to abandon its one-child birth policy – which ended in 2016 – because of the damage it would do to future economic growth and the nation’s ability to support its aging population.”
“The new figures also proved that the benefits from China’s decision to relax its birth restrictions have fallen well short of expectations. After Beijing allowed Chinese couples to have two children from 2016, the new birth rose briefly to 17.86 million in 2016 but has fallen every year since,” the SCMP added.
CNN looked at the demographic data on Friday and concluded China is actually hitting its lowest birth rates since the Communists founded their “People’s Republic” in 1949.
CNN pointed out that one potentially intractable problem created by the one-child policy is a severe shortage of young women, since boys were greatly preferred by poor families under the one-child regime.
Another is that young Chinese couples, like many others in the industrialized world, are putting off child-rearing as they focus on careers and worry about the effect children would have on their standard of living.
A December report at Sky News outlined another problem catching up with China: its long tradition of the elderly living with their families leaves it ill-prepared to deal with a massive aging population. China does not have the facilities to care for so many senior citizens, or the accumulated wealth to handle a surplus of elderly people versus young workers.
“China is getting old, fast. Last year there were 167 million people over the age of 60. By 2050, there will be 487 million, representing more than a third of the population,” Sky News noted.
Our President is going after the holy grail.

The Trump administration has a new target on the immigration front — pregnant women visiting from other countries — with plans as early as this week to roll out a new rule cracking down on “birth tourism,” three administration officials told Axios.
Why it matters: Trump has threatened to end birthright citizenship and railed against immigrant “anchor babies.” The new rule would be one of the first tangible steps to test how much legal authority the administration has to prevent foreigners from taking advantage of the 14th Amendment’s protection of citizenship for anyoneborn in the U.S.
- “This change is intended to address the national security and law enforcement risks associated with birth tourism, including criminal activity associated with the birth tourism industry,” a State Department official told Axios.
- The regulation is also part of the administration’s broader efforts to intensify the vetting process for visas, according to another senior administration official.
The big picture: “Birth tourists” often come to the U.S. from China, Russia and Nigeria, according to the AP.
How the new regulation would work: It would alter the requirements for B visas (or visitor visas), giving State Department officials the authority to deny foreigners the short-term business and tourism visas if they believe the process is being used to facilitate automatic citizenship.
What to watch: Most of Trump’s major immigration moves have been met with lawsuits. If the regulation leaves it to officers’ discretion to ensure that B visas aren’t used for birth tourism, it would be difficult to challenge in court, according to Lynden Melmed, an attorney and former chief counsel at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
- “State Department officials have all the discretion in the world to deny people visas,” said Sarah Pierce of the Migration Policy Institute. Foreign nationals who are outside the U.S. and have not yet received visas “don’t have a lot of legal standing.”
