The White House announced an additional $19 billion in aid to the nation’s farmers and ranchers Tuesday to help “maintain the health of the food supply chain” during the Coronavirus pandemic.
“The farmers and ranchers are incredible people,” Trump said during comments at the White House. “I’m proud to stand right by their side in this hour of need.”
He added: “It’s an honor to do it, actually. These are great, great people.”
“As part of this program, $16 billion in direct payments will be made to farmers and ranchers directly,” said the President.
