Maybe there's a billionaire not running for President who could create some ads showing the devastation Trump is causing. Separate ads could feature:
- A farmer bankrupted by #TrumpTariffs
- A family devastated by #StochasticTerrorism
- A child whose family lost #FoodStamps (1/5)
- A senior whose #SocialSecurity disability benefits have been cut
- A #Kentucky coal miner whose mine shut down
- A parent who lost his job after his company used the #GOPTaxScam to buy back stock
- A #MinimumWage worker falling deeper into debt despite working 2-3 jobs (2/5)
- Residents in one of the communities like Key West, FL being devastated by #ClimateChange
- A family hit with a medical emergency who have to resort to #GoFundMe for to pay bills

Since @realDonaldTrump continues to boast that China is paying the tariffs now being redistributed to farmers, here's an thread of the tariffs my small business has paid as a result of Trump's tariffs.

My business pays 100% of these tariffs - China does not pay a single penny.
This was my first bill for the new Trump tariffs effective 9/1, received 9/16.

These were paid 100% by my business- not China as
@realDonaldTrump continues to lie about.

$6,381.96 for *one* shipment.

This shipment was *already on the water* when Trump announced the tariffs.
@realDonaldTrump Another tariff bill received on Sept 13th.

Thankfully the container was cleared just before the September tariffs took effect, so while we got hit on some earlier tariffs, it was not as drastic.

Nonetheless, another $1,371 in #TrumpTariffs paid 100% by my business - not China.

Unhinged, with delusions of dictatorial grandeur, @realDonaldTrump "ORDERS" US companies not to do business with China. Aside from the fact that he does not have any such power, American businesses are already hurting because the #TrumpTariffs have gutted their business w/ China.
American farmers & small businesses may never recover from the damage caused by the #TrumpTradeWar. Families are on the verge of losing their farms. Small businesses are on the verge of bankruptcy. Big car companies and steel companies are closing plants & laying off workers.
Now, w/ a series of tweets, Trump has abandoned any semblance that he is an elected official who works for the people and NOT a king. He is freaking out about how his policies are about to derail an economy that has been growing steadily for 10 years. He is blaming everyone else.

If you, like me, cannot point to a single thing @RepFrenchHill has done for the benefit of his constituents in #AR2 then you owe it to yourself and everyone else in the seven county area to vote for @clarketucker this November. #arpx #Vote #Midterms2018
.@RepFrenchHill has voted to end coverage for pre-existing conditions. He doesn't care whether or not you can afford to see a doctor, or even if your health insurance will cover a visit. He does not care about #Arkansans #AR2 #ByeFrench #VoteThemOut #arpx
.@RepFrenchHill supports @realDonaldTrump #ConcentrationCamps for migrant children, infants, and toddlers. He refuses to speak up about these egregious #HumanRights violations. #Arkansas deserves a better, more humane representative in #AR2 - @clarketucker is that person! #Vote
