A leader retaliates against government staffers for revealing facts that directly contradict his propaganda.

This is the stuff of a dictatorship. And it recently happened in the Trump White House.

As reported recently by Politico, at least six economists in the U.S. Department of Agriculture quit their jobs after claiming that their department was punished by the Trump administration for issuing reports saying farmers were being hurt by his tariffs and the Republican tax overhaul.

The economists worked in the USDA’s research arm, the Economic Research Service, which has been targeted for staffing cuts of 50% and is being moved out of Washington, D.C., to a location in the interior of the country. In addition, Politico reported that the staff was ordered to add disclaimers to its reports saying their findings were “preliminary” and “should not be construed to represent any agency determination or policy.”
