Moments ago, President Trump concluded a 40 minute speech in Central Valley California concluding it by saying “God bless the American farmer, God bless America.”
Los Angeles Times reports President Donald Trump’s visit to California continues Wednesday with stops in the Central Valley to discuss water policy and then on to Rancho Mirage for a fundraiser hosted by Oracle Chairman Larry Ellison.
On Tuesday, Trump was in Beverly Hills, where he slammed Los Angeles officials for opposing his crackdown on illegal immigration and over the city’s homelessness crisis, reiterating points he made during his last visit to California in September. This week’s trip marks Trump’s fourth to California as president, two weeks ahead of the state’s primary.
Trump is planning to meet with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy in Bakersfield on Wednesday “to speak with hard-working farmers in the Central Valley about efforts to dramatically improve the supply and delivery of water in California and other Western states,” the White House said.
McCarthy welcomed Trump’s visit while speaking Sunday on Fox News.
“We have a real concern in California because we send most of our water out to the ocean (instead of) sending it down to Southern California, to our farmlands in the San Joaquin Valley and others,” McCarthy said. “This president has worked greatly using science — not based on politics but on science — to allow to have more of that water stay with the Californians and America to make sure we’re secure in our food supply as we move forward.”
Per TCO, Monday 2020 Candidate Michael Bloomberg was under fire after a new video surfaced where he claimed farming does not require much intelligence “I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer.”
“People for Bernie” responded on Twitter to the video, writing:
“Time and time again we see Bloomberg insulting the middle class and the working class, union members and not yet union members
Maybe it’s time for pundits to stop pretending he’s just another candidate
Bloomberg is an oligarch spending his play money to buy the White House”

I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer.
It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn. You could learn that. Then we had 300 years of the industrial society.
You put the piece of metal on the lathe, you turn the crank in the direction of the arrow and you can have a job. And we created a lot of jobs. At one point, 98 percent of the world worked in agriculture, now it’s 2 percent in the United States.
