      随着中美贸易摩擦的升级,盼不到形势好转的美国农民隔三差五就向媒体吐一番苦水。前有豆农吐槽特朗普承诺买豆子,自己却至今一毛钱也没看到;这两天又有农民吐槽特朗普将利益受损的农民们称为爱国者其实是想让他们闭嘴收声停止抱怨。
      
      对于特朗普来说,要想在2020年大选中再次获胜,农民的选票是至关重要的。而5月15日,在接N采访时,当年投过他一票的俄亥俄州豆农克里斯托弗·吉布斯(Christopher Gibbs)却断言,自己再也不会投给他了。
      

      
      他说在特朗普一手挑起贸易战和中国发起反制的来回之间,最受苦的就是他这样的农场主了,目前他们已经是完全处在“自由落体”(free-fall)的状态下了。
      
      “We’re in a free fall out here in agriculture. We've seen a 30 percent decrease in prices of soybeans, and this isn't all about soybeans," Gibbs said.“我们的农业现在完全是在自由落体了。大豆价格下跌了30?其他农产品价格也在下跌,”吉布斯说到。"With the geopolitical turmoil that the president has thrown into the mix over the last year, the markets just don't have anywhere to go," he added.他补充说:“随着总统在过去一年中掀起的地缘政治动荡,市场就陷入一潭死水。”

      这边农民叫苦连天,那边特朗普却对农民开始了道德绑架,不停地夸农民是爱国者。既然作为爱国者,吃这点苦算什么呢?更何况这些“爱国农民终将成为贸易战的最大赢家。”
      

      
      美国农民:???
      

      
      The Ohio farmer went on to say, “Those tariff dollarse directly from American importers, from Americanpanies that hire American workers that pay American taxes…. We would rather have trade. We would rather have our markets back.”“这些关税直接来自美国进口商,来自雇佣美国工人并支付美国税款的美国公司…我们更愿意有贸易往来,更想要回我们的市场。”

      而特朗普之所以给农民戴上“爱国者”的高帽子,完全是“为了让他们保持沉默”,停止对政府的谴责,但他才不会屈服。
      

      
      在看完视频后,主持人问吉布斯:“你如此公开反对贸易战,是不是说明你不爱国呢?”
      
      "No, it's certainly not unpatriotic at all," Gibbs replied. "I'm certainly not going to have my patriotism questioned, and I'm not sure why the president's even bringing this up."“不,这当然不是不爱国,”吉布斯回答。“我是不会让人质疑我的爱国精神的,但我不明白总统为什么要提这茬。”"For me to be a patriot, the best thing I can do is to take care of my family, to take care of my farm, and make sure that I stay viable," he added.他补充说:“对我来说,照顾好我的家庭,经营好我的农场,并确保我能活下去,这才是爱国。”

      "Why the farmingmunity has to take one in the shorts just so the president can have a talking point and be tough on China, just is a little bit beyond me," Gibbs concluded.他总结道:“把我们农民整完蛋就是为了能让总统拿去当说辞,好对中国采取强硬态度吗?这就有点让我费解了。”

      吉布斯表示,2016年特朗普信心十足的态度打动了他,但2018年7月之后他改变了想法,他要从特朗普这辆车上下去了(get off the Trump train.)
