With Trump's tariffs imminent, I did a deep dive for @BW on the congressional districts that will suffer most. One GOP strategist told me: "It’s like he’s micro-targeting policy to screw his own supporters.”…
I found a remarkable stat on how badly Trump supporters get hurt in a trade war if China retaliates with soy tariffs as threatened. Of the 30 House districts most reliant on soybeans, GOP reps 25 + Dems 5 -- but all 30 districts voted for Trump in '16 (…)
One irony is that hardcore pro-Trump House Republicans, like @SteveKingIA, will suffer the most from Trump's actions -- and they know it. King told me "nobody" in his district thinks this'll turn out well for them
If anyone wants to follow up, districts that'll suffer most from soy tariffs, in descending order:
IA-04 - @SteveKingIA
KS-01 - @RogerMarshallMD
NE-03 - @RepAdrianSmith
MN-07 - @collinpeterson
SD-00 - @RepKristiNoem
IL-18 - @RepLaHood
ND-00 - @RepKevinCramer
IA-01 - @RepRodBlum
Using the @TheTerminal's boundless data (and MAPS team), we combined commodities info like grain elevators with House district zip codes. Happy to share w/local reporters in general area of this map:
