Ret. Gen. Barry McCaffrey on Wednesday unloaded on President Donald Trump after ambassador Bill Taylor delivered devastating testimony this week that accused the president of withholding military aid from Ukraine until the country agreed to investigate his political opponents.

Farmers say they are planting less, turning to automation, eliminating some crops, leaving them to rot in the field or contemplating selling out of the business altogether -- all because they cannot find enough immigrant labor.
