A soybean farmer told CNBC on Monday that he is so disgusted with the White House trade policy that he wouldn’t vote for Donald Trump again if the president literally walked on water.

Farmer Christopher Gibbs, a former Republican county chairman in Ohio, explained on CNBC’s Power Lunch program that he does not trust Trump’s promises of a trade deal “until the soybeans are on the boat.”

“I hate to be a downer on all this but somebody has to be practical,” he remarked.

Gibbs said that he voted for Trump in 2016 but can’t do it again.

“He could walk across my pond and not get wet and I’m still not going to vote for him,” the farmer said. “At the end of the day my name is Chris Gibbs, it’s not Judas. I’m not going to sell my political moorings for 30 pieces of silver.”

“So, no, I’m out,” he concluded.

Why saying ‘OK boomer’ at work is considered age discrimination – but millennial put-downs aren’t

Published

on

The phrase “OK boomer” has become a catch-all put-down that Generation Zers and young millennials have been using to dismiss retrograde arguments made by baby boomers, the generation of Americans who are currently 55 to 73 years old.

Though it originated online and primarily is fueling memes, Twitter feuds and a flurry of commentary, it has begun migrating to real life. Earlier this month, a New Zealand lawmaker lobbed the insult at an older legislator who had dismissed her argument about climate change.

Academic experts analyze Johnson and Corbyn’s claims in first 2019 UK election debate

Published

Boris Johnson, the UK prime minister, and Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, have answered questions from the public in a head-to-head debate as they prepare for the country’s general election on December 12.

A court ruling earlier in the day upheld ITV’s decision not to offer podiums to either the SNP or the Liberal Democrats. On stage, though, Johnson and Corbyn appeared strangely dwarfed in front of a set that appeared borrowed from Blade Runner.

The two candidates levelled numerous accusations at each other during their hour on stage – but which are to be believed? Conversation articles by academic experts provide informed perspectives, grounded in research. Here’s what they’ve had to say on the issues that arose.
