President Trump says he would not push son Barron to play 'dangerous' game of football

President Trump says he would not push son Barron to play 'dangerous' game of football President Trump, who three years ago ripped the NFL as being "soft," said that he would not steer his son Barron toward playing football, calling it a "dangerous sport." Trump told "Face the Nation" in an interview that will air on Super Bowl Sunday that he is happy that his 12-year-old son plays a lot of soccer and not the more physical sport. "I just don't like the reports that I see coming out having to do with football," Trump told Margaret Brennan. "I mean, it's a dangerous sport and I think it's ... really tough, I thought the equipment would get better, and it has. The helmets have gotten far better but it hasn't solved the problem.

Hard times for farmers got tougher with President Donald Trump’s trade war. Now Midwestern farmers are filing the highest number of bankruptcies in a decade, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of federal data.

And farmers aren’t hopeful about this year.

Twice as many farmers in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin declared bankruptcy last year compared to 2008, according to statistics from the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, the Journal reported. Bankruptcies in states from North Dakota to Arkansas leaped 96 percent, according to figures from the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Farmers are being battered by sinking commodity prices — and stiff tariffs from China and Mexico in retaliation for Trump’s tariffs on imports.

The new 11-nation Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) treaty last year slashed tariffs — but not for U.S. farmers since the Trump administration pulled out of negotiations. That drove customers to farmers and ranchers in competitive countries, like Australia, serving another dunning blow to American operations.

Farmers fear it will take years to rebuild those trading relationships.

According to figures from the U.S. Agriculture Department, farm income last year was about 50 percent of what it was in 2013, the Wisconsin State Farmer reported.

LeBron James thinks trade rumors have been ‘tough’ on young Lakers

LeBron James thinks trade rumors have been ‘tough’ on young Lakers LeBron James has never personally dealt with trade rumors, but he imagines they’re not easy for any player to handle. James’ Los Angeles Lakers got hammered by the Indiana Pacers 136-94 on Tuesday night. The lopsided loss seems to show that the players are not giving max effort because they’re bothered by trade rumors. More than half the team’s players — Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Ivica Zubac, Kyle Kuzma, Lance Stephenson, Rajon Rondo and Michael Beasley — have all been mentioned in trade talks for Anthony Davis. James was asked whether he thought the players were bothered by the rumors and gave a mixed response. "You can't really ask me.

President Donald Trump ’s trade war with China is making life harder for struggling American farmers . A total of 84 farms in the upper Midwest filed for bankruptcy between July 2017 and June 2018, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. That’s more than double the number of Chapter 12 filings

The dairy industry was hopeful about meeting growing demand in China, but now trade is a major stumbling block. “The problem is that both nations have stubborn leaders,” Mark Stephenson, director of dairy policy analysis at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, said at an agricultural forum last week in Madison.

Soybeans were also a major victim. “Agriculture prices live and die by exports. In all commodities, we’re heavily dependent on China, especially for soybeans,” Kevin Bernhardt, agribusiness professor at the University of Wisconsin in Platteville, told the Milwaukee Independent.

Government subsidies to farmers were up 18 percent last year over the previous year, due to the $4.7 billion in tariff aid and $1.6 billion in disaster payments for farmers impacted by hurricanes, floods and other disasters. But it wasn’t enough to stave off the end for some.
