    So Trump is responsible for the actions of Plainville Farms actions? Really? Your article doesn't support your claim. My bold

    When contacted by POLITICO, Mickey Baugher, vice president of operations for Plainville Farms, replied via a LinkedIn message that "our decision to modify the terms of our grower agreements were not influenced by any changes in GIPSA rules." He noted that even with the updated contracts, growers make 20 percent more than the average industry grower. He added, "We do not believe that any modifications to our grower agreements will have any effect on the quality of our turkeys."

    The letter he sent to turkey growers also stated that "the decision to reduce grower pay was not made quickly or lightly" and that "having the best housing in the industry will benefit the welfare of our turkeys."

    Yikes! Pretty desperate Democrat faux outrage. 'Trump hates the turkey farmers' now? Seriously, this OP really does need to take a long break from Democrat Fake News. Sounding pretty loony at this point. :cuckoo:

    Why do you start a thread based on a lie? Are you a liberal? That would explain it.
