Saw an article on US "Fake" News talking with Iowa farmers who are starting to feel the pinch with far more on the way. Not mentioned in the Article (it's almost a week old) but China is jumping in to smack the POTUS supporters as well. This is how trade wars are fought these days to make sure they are not "Easy to Win". Some nations are discussing going after rump business empire.

From the article in a Houston Chronicle Op Ed which I won't post.: "suggested the only way to quell the rising trade tensions is to strike at Trump's businesses."

Interestingly the precedence was set when: But DeBusk said such a move would not be "totally unprecedented." She pointed to the Treasury Department's recent sanctions of powerful Russian oligarchs as evidence it could be legally justified.

There are even suggestions that anti-corruption laws could be used. Generally most think it would be a bad idea ... unless of course they had something really good. }};-D
