Neal discussed voters during the 2016 election who voted for Donald Trump because they did not like the other candidates that were listed. He talked about how they were putting their trust into President Trump with their vote and how they are paying the consequences for it now. Neal said that he had went and talked to farmers and other silent voters and how they feel betrayed that the president did not keep up with his promises that he had made during his campaign trail and that they are being hurt. Lastly, he talked about legislation being put in place to try and help the farmers, but they do not like it because they do not like handouts; they want the president to act on the promises that he had originally made.
