Trump, Ethanol and Cows

President Donald Trump rallied his base in Iowa last night, as many of his rivals for the presidency remain stuck in Washington D.C. on the impeachment trial in the Senate only days before the Iowa caucus.

The president touted his recent trade accomplishments and how they will help farmers, and he repeated his frequent refrain about getting “the ethanol” for the persistent Iowa Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst. This time he also professed his love for cows and how they are threatened by liberal Democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

“The Green New Deal, which would crush our farms, destroy our wonderful cows – I love cows!” said President Trump. “They want to kill our cows, that means you’re next! And they want to wipe out, totally, Iowa ethanol.”
