The top Democrat on the House Agriculture Committee insists farmers need the money. WASHINGTON ― Democrats are doing the Trump administration a favor that Republicans wouldn’t have done for Obama. President Donald Trump has given so much extra money to American farms harmed by his trade policy that the U.S. Department of Agriculture is nearing a legal limit. Now lawmakers are stepping in to save the farm bailout, boosting the USDA’s borrowing authority so it can continue to pay farmers who are unable to sell soybeans and other crops to Chinese buyers because of the Trump trade war. The House approved a resolution Thursday by a mostly Democratic 301-123 vote to fund the government until Nov. 21. The resolution, which the Senate will likely approve next week, included language the Trump administration wanted to keep the farm funds flowing.
