Biden campaign slams Trump for not supporting farmers and biofuels

August 26, 2020 |

In Delaware, the Biden Presidential Campaign issued a statement blasting the Trump Administration for not supporting farmers and the biofuel industry, saying that like an Obama-Biden Administration, a Biden-Harris Administration would have the industry’s back.

“Instead of standing with those who till our land and sow our fields, we have a president who has sold out our farmers by undercutting the Renewable Fuel Standard with the granting of waivers to Big Oil,” the statemen said. “Those waivers severely cut ethanol production, costing farmers income and ethanol plant workers their jobs. Now, President Trump refuses to announce the 2021 renewable fuel production levels until after the election, leaving farmers concerned of further cuts to production. The Renewable Fuel Standard marks our bond with our farmers and our commitment to a thriving rural economy. Donald Trump doesn’t respect that connection, and he’s thrown it away to the detriment of generations of producers across the Midwest and around the country — many of whom put their trust in him four years ago.”
