MANITOBA CO-OPERATOR -- Anthony Pahnke is vice-president of the Family Farm Defenders and an assistant professor of International Relations at San Francisco State University. This piece appeared in a recent issue of Wisconsin State Farmer.

“Is promoting free trade through lambasting the Canadians and potentially rejoining the Trans Pacific Partnership the remedy to the current dairy crisis? The answer is no,” Pahnke writes. “Yet, instead of acknowledging this point that is apparent after analyzing the results of the Democrats’ free trade initiatives from the 1990s, Trump chooses to follow their policies and embrace their economic vision for rural America.”
