Trump Tweets About U.S. Farmers From NATO Meeting

(AP) – President Donald Trump says he’s thinking about American farmers even as he meets with NATO allies in Brussels.
Trump says in a two-part tweet Wednesday that he’s “in Brussels, but always thinking about our farmers.”

Critics have warned that Trump’s antagonistic trade moves will harm American farmers who grow crops like soybeans.

But Trump says “Farmers have done poorly for 15 years” and blames “Other countries’ trade barriers and tariffs” for “destroying their businesses.” He’s pledging to open “things up, better than ever before” but says “it can’t go too quickly.”
Trump says “I am fighting for a level playing field for our farmers, and will win!”

The tweet came as Trump attended a closed-door meeting of the North Atlantic Council. Staffers often send tweets for the president.
