Trump On Racist Attacks: ‘I Don’t Know If It’s Good Or Bad, Many People Say it’s Good, I Don’t Care’

President Donald Trump on Friday afternoon stepped up his attacks on Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.) one day after distancing himself from racial chants he incited at his campaign rally.

Asked if his xenophobic attacks on the progressive lawmakers are good politically, the president issued a stunning response.

“I don’t know if it’s good or bad politically. I don’t care,” Trump told reporters of his attack against the group of Democratic lawmakers, known as the “Squad,” as he departed the White House for a weekend in New Jersey.

“Many people say it’s good. I don’t know if it’s good or bad,” he continued. “I can tell you this: You can’t talk that way about our country. Not when I’m the president.”

Wisconsin Dairy Farmer Dumps 56,000 Pounds Of Milk Because ‘No One’s Buying It’

The coronavirus pandemic has dried up the marketplace for dairy products as restaurants, schools and businesses in food service have been closed. Now, dairy farmers are flushing away milk because no one is buying.

Mark Mueller, a Wisconsin dairy farmer said he dumped 56,000 pounds of milk on Friday, blaming restaurant closures because there was no place for him to haul his product.

The milk harvested from the nearly 1,000 cows will rot, Mueller told WFRV.

Mueller said he’s worried the COVID-19 pandemic is preventing dairy farmers from getting their milk to the market.

“It’s really depressing,” said Mueller. “It’s like all your hard work just running down the drain.”

Another farmer, Farmer Ryan Elbe, said his dairy farm is dumping about 30,000 gallons (113,562 liters) a day.

“We thought this would never happen,” Elbe said. “Everybody’s rushing to the grocery store to get food, and we have food that’s literally being dumped down the drain.”

CBS12 reported that Elbe’s cooperative, Dairy Farmers of America, has agreed to pay them for milk that’s being dumped.

For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.
