The price of avocados after Trump shuts down the border.
Trump shuts down the government, shuts down the border, causes massive economic havoc in both cases. Putin wins, American in chaos and Republicans are begging him not to throw them under the bus in advance of what will be a tough 2020 race for Republicans.
As a Democrat, politically I should welcome these self-inflicted wounds.
But because the consequences wreak so much havoc and devastation in the real lives of real people, I do not welcome this chaos, but I do want those responsible for it to be held accountable.
Avocados aren’t important. We must investigate the ORANGES!
I’ve never tasted an avocado. What do they taste like?
Just maybe, it is Tiny’s goal to economically help the avocado, orange, and kiwi fruit growers of Florida and California with his border closing, but where will they find the help at harvest time?
Same goes for celery lately. Awhile back it was lettuce. It seems the price for some form of produce has to skyrocket periodically.
Trump is not going to stop until no one except the 1% can afford food as well as, well, just about everything else.
The produce section would be totally empty if the resident decides to close the southern border… So Christie’s could sell all produce at auction… For one thing as someone mentioned here… u.s. Grower’s Can’t Get Enough help to harvest before the crop rots in The Orchards and Fields…
Sure, Trump could potentially cost the US one billion dollars worth of trade per day and throw multiple industries into chaos… but it’s worth it to keep those brown people out so that none of them try to date my daughter!
There is your failing Republican ‘economy’ for ya.
President Trump says windmill noise will give you cancer. I’ve been trying to figure out which is the craziest word in that sentence. It’s president.

Couldn’t they be grown in California, Texas or Alabama?
