- Trump Hoax Investigation Heats Up, China Trade War is On, Crop Trouble

Last night, President Trump kicked the Trump-Russian collusion hoax investigation into high gear. Trump ordered “the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 presidential election.” President Trump is also giving the authority to declassify documents to AG Barr. Maybe this is why the Democrats, like Nancy Pelosi, are saying crazy things as a way to mount some sort of defense about an investigation that will send many to jail for treason. President Trump said again on Thursday that “Treason” was committed in trying to remove him from office in what FBI officials said was an “insurance policy” in case Clinton lost.
China and the U.S. are entering into a trade war, and it’s not going to end anytime soon. It also could get very ugly as China can retaliate with its own tariffs. It can also sell its $1.1 trillion in U.S. debt. That might have a devastating effect on the bond market. Trump has long said China takes advantage of America, and with $500 billion annual trade deficit with China, who can argue that point.
Rain, rain everywhere in the U.S. growing regions. The USDA says planting is way behind schedule in many parts of the country. With the wet farm ground not drying out anytime soon, it may get too late in the year to plant some crops. Is this a harbinger for higher food prices?
