Trump’s Farm Bailout Flows To “City Slickers,” a D.C. Lobbyist and ‘Farms’ on Golf Courses
About 9,000 “city slickers” living in luxurious neighborhoods of the nation’s largest cities received a farm bailout from the Trump administration to minimize the impact of the trade war with China, anupdatedEnvironmental Working Group (EWG) analysis of Department of Agriculture data shows.
The EWG analysis of USDA data revealed that “many recipients live not in farm country but in the nation’s 50 largest cities or in other decidedly non-rural locations.”
Urban recipients of the bailout include members of farm families, landowners, and investors. These people provide land, capital, or equipment for farms and make high-level decisions for operations.
EWG said bailout recipients include 70 people in San Francisco, 65 residents in New York City, 63 residents in Los Angeles, 61 residents in Washington, D.C., and 19 Miami.
