In an interview with Politico, GOP Gov. Kristi Noem (SD) took a shot at President Donald Trump for starting a trade war with China that is devastating farmers in her state.

According to the Republican governor, agriculture is a major part of her state’s economy, and the farmers are hurting with many feeling they will lose their family farms.

“South Dakota has been devastated by the trade wars that are going on,” Noem explained adding that the woes of farmers affect “every main street business, everybody that has another entity out there that relies on a successful ag industry.”

“I have consistently been an advocate for wrapping up these trade discussions and making sure we’re getting access to better markets,” she continued, before adding, “The problem is that this has gone on now for a long period of time.”

“Farmers are used to risk, they’re used to prices going up and down and having that, but this sustained low commodity prices, frankly, is driving a lot of family businesses out of business,” she elaborated. “That is why we need to have some serious consideration for wrapping this up quickly.”

Rep. Adam Schiff suggested that a presidential pardon for Roger Stone would be an impeachable offense.

"Roger Stone was found guilty of lying to Congress and threatening a witness," Schiff tweeted.

Schiff, who led the impeachment inquiry and trial, agreed with Jackson -- whose language echoed the lawmaker's "corrupt scheme and cover-up" indictment during the Senate trial.

Trump ally Roger Stone frequently led chants of "Lock her up!" about Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign -- but on Thursday, the table decisively turned.

After Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison for charges of perjury, witness tampering, and obstruction of justice, a crowd of people greeted the right-wing dirty trickster by chanting, "Lock him up!" outside the courthouse.

At least one supporter of President Donald Trump tried to get a "pardon" chant going, but they were drowned out by the louder "Lock him up" chants.

‘Beg to be tried as a white man’: Disgust follows Roger Stone’s light sentence — while people of color sit in jail for less

Published

Judge Amy Berman Jackson was the target of serious attacks by President Donald Trump's supporters and Roger Stone himself. When the Justice Department encouraged seven to nine years in prison for Stone, Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr freaked out, rewriting the sentencing memo that was ultimately ignored by the new prosecutors.

But Stone wasn't given the hefty sentence that Trump and his followers assumed Stone would get. Instead, he got a fairly light sentence of just over three years.

Leading up to the sentence, Berman Jackson was blasted on Twitter. So, it's unclear how Trump and his followers will manage to attack the judge for the sentence. Some still managed to do it, saying Stone shouldn't have been sentenced to any time at all.
