Trump targets farmers. Walker bags it.

Walker endorsed Trump at the GOP's 2016 nominating convention and serves as a reliable Trump enabler.

Walker's hostility to the food stamp program - - their bromance is fueled by a shared affinity for poor-bashing - - echoes cuts that Trump has folded into his just released budget.

But the Trump budget also makes mincemeat of numerous farm, land conservation, water, waste water, insurance and other foundational programs for rural people who grow our food, and I haven't heard a word from Walker about that.

One writer said of he proposed farm budget:

Trump turns farmers into a sacrifice

I may have missed Walker's condemnation of Trump's rural and farm proposals, though on Feb. 15th Walker did use Twitter to post something he thought was important about food: "Another brown bag lunch."
