John Boyd, Jr., the founder and president of the National Black Farmers Association, went on CNN Friday to rain hell on President Donald Trump’s trade wars.
During an interview with CNN’s Poppy Harlow, Boyd said that he and his farm have still not received a penny in federal assistance money from the president’s bailout fund for farmers hurt by his trade wars.
He also argued that even if he had received money from the government, it wouldn’t nearly make up for the amount he’s losing from lacking access to overseas markets.
“This administration has failed small scale farmers,” he said. “It has failed black farmers like myself.”
He then hammered Trump for ratcheting up a trade war with China, which has traditionally been a massive buyer of American soybeans, without opening up any new markets that could help farmers make up the difference in lost income.
“We need to reopen these doors to places like China who had — who were purchasing 90 percent of U.S. soybeans,” he said. “And this administration has failed to open up new markets, and that’s what’s hurting us here. You take away the biggest market and don’t open up, you know, new doors for farmers.”

Trump leveled by retired general for making Iran war decisions based on advice from Fox News hosts
During a panel discussion on the increased tensions between the U.S. and Iran after a drone was shot down by the Middle Eastern country in international airspace, a retired general claimed he was worried about Donald Trump's response based upon who it appears the president listens to when it comes to advice.
Speaking with host John Berman, retired Lt. General Mark Hertling warned that the shootdown was a dangerous provocation.
"It's huge, John," Hertling explained. "You can go all the way from backing down completely to a full-scale war -- that's what's dangerous about this situation."
CNN panelist stumps host with Trump logic: ‘You can statistically say anything but I don’t see it’
A Trump supporter on Thursday brushed off statistics showing that hate crimes have been rising since President Donald Trump's election by claiming that he has not personally seen any additional hate crimes.
During a CNN voter panel, host Alisyn Camerota quoted from official statistics showing a significant increase in hate crimes committed since Trump's upset victory in 2016.
Trump supporter Darrell Wimbley, however, wasn't buying it and he cited his own personal experiences to prove his point.
"You can say that, but I truly don't believe it because I don't see it," he said. "I can statistically say anything but I don't see it."
Andrew McCabe rains hell on ‘insanely stupid’ Trump in epic rant before calling for impeachment hearings
Appearing on CNN's "New Day" on Thursday morning, former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe unleashed hell on President Donald Trump for launching yet another unprovoked attack on him, saying the president says lots of "stupid things."
On Wednesday evening, the president smeared McCabe, with Trump calling him "terrible" and saying he couldn't do anything -- including go to the bathroom -- without former FBI Director James Comey's permission.
Given a chance to respond by CNN's John Berman, McCabe didn't hold back.
"You know, I've been listening to the president say insanely stupid things for years now about me personally, about my organization, and about the investigation, we undertook to find out if the president posed a threat to national security," McCabe began. "I won't get down in the weeds with the president and exchange insults on Twitter or TV or anywhere else, but the question we should be asking is: why do we have a president who feels necessary to attack individuals? Individuals -- private citizens, individuals who serve in our government -- to attack personally when he's scared of the truth that they have to offer."
