Trump-Supporting Farmers in the Central Valley are Now Worried

In the Central Valley of California, many bet their farms on Donald Trump's election, taking in his message of reducing regulations and taxes. As for his promises about cracking down on illegal immigrants, many assumed Mr. Trump’s pledges were mostly just talk.

Jeff Marchini said that as a businessman, Mr. Trump would know that farmers had invested millions of dollars into produce that is growing right now, and that not being able to pick and sell those crops would represent huge losses for the state economy. “I’m confident that he can grasp the magnitude and the anxiety of what’s happening now.”

It is too bad for the farmers that they did not think of this before they supported Trump.
