Former GOP county chair: I wouldn't vote for Trump again if he literally walked on water (VIDEO)
Farmer Christopher Gibbs, a former Republican county chairman in Ohio, appeared on CNBC's Power Lunch on Monday and ripped apart Trump's trade promises to farmers.
"This is deja vu all over again. The president promised massive purchases from Mexico, he promised massive purchases from the EU. He's now promised massive purchases from the Chinese. And, he's done that before."
Gibbs says Trump has left a bad taste in his mouth and other farmers.
“I hate to be a downer on all this but somebody has to be practical," he said when talking about this administration's policies. Even though he voted for Trump in 2016, he's not going to make that same mistake again.
“He could walk across my pond and not get wet and I’m still not going to vote for him,” the farmer said. “At the end of the day my name is Chris Gibbs, it’s not Judas. I’m not going to sell my political moorings for 30 pieces of silver.”
“So, no, I’m out,” he concluded.
Chris Gibbs is a soybean farmer by trade and he knows this business intimately. He's saying that even if Trump delivers in the short-term on increased trade with China that helps farmers, he's "dubious" over how long that will actually last.
His conversation with CNBC's Power Lunch was very informative.
