Sorry Ray

No its an allegation hit piece. See here is the main allegation..."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."


What is the article's support for these allegations?

It is this..."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."


Now Ray the allegation claim is retaliation against government staffers. But Political presented the 6 economist QUIT.

Your source also presents the retaliation was for saying farmers were being hurt by tariffs and repo tax overhaul.

But Politico presented this.."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.”."

They were simply ordered to state their findings were preliminary and not representative of an agency. In other words these six weren't prevented from presenting their info just ordered to also provide a disclaimer and they weren't retaliated against.

Overall a TERRIBLE article and source.
