Farmers from the U.S. Southeast, mainly those cultivating crops like cotton or sorghum, got larger trade aid payments from the government in 2019, the non-partisan Government Accountability Office said.

Notably, the Trump administration rolled out several subsidy schemes to compensate growers for lost sales during the tariff war with China.

Although many farmers support the US Presidential, dissatisfaction from farmers in states like Wisconsin or Michigan might play a big role in upcoming presidential election.
