Tennessee farmers tell Sara Carter: COVID relief bill ‘promotes division’ within the farming community

Tennessee farmers

Sara Carter spoke with Tennessee farmers who will not receive any government assistance from the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package based on its race criteria.

In a “Hannity” exclusive on Monday, farmers blamed President Joe Biden for “promoting division” within the recently enacted COVID relief bill.

The COVID relief bill will be providing minority farmers with special benefits. According to Carter, half of the $10.4 billion package dedicated to American farmers will only be going towards minority farmers.

“I’m sorry, but I was raised to not see color and not to see race, but to see the character and the person’s heart,” Tennessee farmer Kelly Griggs told Carter. “That’s how I was raised, that’s how the farming community sees each other.”

“The government has basically said ‘OK, this is what we are doing, whether you like it or not.’ Because farmers throughout the years, that’s what we’ve had to take. They’ve made policies for us without even stepping foot on our farm,” Griggs said.

According to the American Farm Bureau Federation, the relief package includes an estimated $4 billion to pay up to 120% of Black, Hispanic, Asian or Native American farmers’ outstanding debt as of Jan. 1.

According to USDA data, fewer than 2% of farms were run by black farmers in 2017.

“If you go into a bank, if you go into any place that loans you money, they’re not going to look at who you are by color or race, they’re going to look at your numbers on a piece of paper. If you don”t meet that criteria, if you don’t meet that rule, you don’t get that money, you don’t get the loan,” Kelly Griggs said.

“I think this bill… not only promotes division in the farming community, but just in people in general,” Kelly’s husband Matt Griggs added.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
