A Benefit of Donald Trump's Trade War? Cheaper Bacon!
Some economists cringed when Donald Trump announced he was starting trade wars. Shows what those eggheads know! According to this report, it's because of Trump bacon is more affordable. I repeat, CHEAPER BACON!
When it comes to American being made great again, I had no idea it would be this delicious.
Americans are losing their taste for chicken and eating more beef and pork as President Donald Trump's trade wars reduce U.S. pork exports to China and Mexico and leave cheaper bacon and ribs at home.
An expansion in the number of U.S. hogs and cattle is contributing to the change in diets by boosting supplies of pork and beef. Restaurants are seizing on the increases to promote hamburgers instead of chicken, while grocery stores have featured pork.
Promoting beef and pork. The two meats vegan dinkuses who're allergic to joy claim we should stop eating (see Vegan Activist Protests Trader Joe’s By Covering Herself in Poop and VIDEO: Toronto Chef Counter Protests Vegans By Carving Up Deer). So not only is Trump singlehandedly making meat cheaper, he's owning the libs while doing so. I may wear a MAGA hat yet.
This part is my favorite:
Kerry Wilson, a Florida mom, is taking advantage of the increase in beef and pork supplies. She said she grew tired of chicken after preparing it for up to four nights a week and finds pork has more flavor.
"I can't gussy it up enough anymore," she said of chicken. "It just seems to be the same taste."
Amen, sister. As opposed to bacon, where there are thousands of ways to gussy it up. Or just fry it and enjoy the crispness of life.
I've never been more proud to be an American than I am right now.
