You get what you vote for. Farmers in rural America overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election. Figures from Pew Research show that 62 percent of voters in small towns and rural areas—men and women both—voted for Trump. And now those farmers are seeing the results of those votes as the trade war over Trump’s tariffs—and China’s retaliatory tariffs on many American goods and crops—are resulting in lower prices for American farmers. The crop taking the biggest hit seems to be soybeans, but the damage is not limited to soybean farmers. Prices for all agricultural exports fell 5.3 percent in July, according to an August 14 report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s the biggest drop since 2011. On July 6, China started to impose 25 percent tariffs on a variety of American agricultural products. Soybean farmers, dairy farmers, and fishermen seem to be especially hard hit. Even though China now says trade talks with the U.S. are back on, the scheduled talks are preliminary and being held by lower-level officials on both sides. The economic damage has been done. “As ye sow, so shall ye reap” (Galatians 6:7). More than anyone else, farmers know all about sowing and reaping. Only in this case, what farmers got for sowing their Trump votes has turned out to be crops that are losing their markets. Their reaping isn’t exactly paying off.

Josh Gordon announced over the weekend that he has rejoined the Cleveland Browns after leaving as part of his ongoing treatment program, which gives the star wide receiver three weeks to prepare for the start of the regular season. However, he is not a lock to play in Week 1.During a conference call with reporters on Saturday, Browns head coach Hue Jackson would not commit to Gordon being ready for the start of the regular season.“There’s a chance,” Jackson said, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. “Obviously, we’re just going to take it one step at a time. His focus is going to be on meetings and conditioning, and then we’ll just kind of go from there. Hopefully, we can get him up and running by the first game.”Jackson’s remarks were similar to the ones made by Browns GM John Dorsey, who said Gordon will ease back in and resume all football activities when “deemed appropriate.”The fact that Gordon has returned several weeks before the start of the season is certainly a good sign, as there was no timetable f
