The trade war between the United States and China is proving to be a disaster for American farmers: the ones who grow and supply our food. This catastrophe is already smacking Americans in the wallets, but a bigger loss would be those who actually supply the food we pay for.

The trade war has had significant effects on American agriculture and farmers throughout the last year, ranging from soybeans, beef, dairy, wheat, and more. Not to mention the added costs of the trade war contributing to American farmers going bankrupt in record numbers.

We hate to say we told you so, but we told you so. The trade war was a bad idea and everyday average Americans are footing the bill for this asinine policy of tariffs. Now, the food supply could be in jeopardy because of political posturing and that will not bode well for already cash-strapped American families.

A total of 84 farms in the upper Midwest filed for bankruptcy between July 2017 and June 2018, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. That’s more than double the number of Chapter 12 filings during the same period in 2013 and 2014 in Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana, reported Vox. –SHTFPlan

As the trade war and the tariffs (taxation aka theft) that come with it remain stagnant in the minds of most, it’s wholly escalating to those who are affected by it directly. “I hope they’ll make strides on that,” Oklahoma-based wheat farmer Hope Pjesky said recently according to Yahoo Finance. “But we really don’t have any way of knowing what’s happening with those negotiations now. And we need things to get back to normal.”
