Trump can't find enough bailouts to fix the problems he's caused

The Sun editorial “GOP orthodoxy's latest blow: The $12 billion bailout (July 25) is right on target. It's nice that President Donald Trump has graciously decided to bail out U.S. farmers who are taking a big financial hit from his misguided tariffs. How about the financial hit being taken by American universities, the American tourism industry, hospitals and medical centers and others, because of Mr. Trump's immigration orders? Will they also be made whole with a financial bailout?

It's a funny paradox that when farmers get financial assistance from the government it’s called a bailout but when low income citizens get financial aid in the form of food stamps or rent subsidies, it becomes a handout. What hypocrisy!
