Biden says US farmers thriving, but people feeding America tell different story: Going into ‘survival mode’
Kansas wheat farmers respond to Biden’s claim that farmers are ‘thriving’ under his leadership
Kansas wheat farmers Vance and Louise Ehmke respond to Biden’s claims that American farmers are ‘thriving’ under his leadership.
Biden lauded a thriving"and flourishing agriculture industry during his remarks at the White House Friday, but Kansas wheat farmers Vance and Louise Ehmke are telling a much different story.
"We've just been through a super cycle. We're at the end of it We had virtually windfall profits and now the party is nearly over, and we're getting ready to go into survival mode," Vance told Fox News' Todd Piro early Monday.
"That means that, if you don't need it, don't buy it, pay down debt [and] don't buy anything like land because it's at the peak of the market," he added.
Vance told Piro that working in the agriculture industry, particularly focusing on wheat has been "quite a ride" due to the volatile market.
