ONAWA, Iowa — Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is making her way around Iowa for her 27 county tour before Christmas.
The 2020 presidential hopeful stopped in Onawa today to speak with local farmers.
They discussed the current struggles in rural America, including healthcare, education and farming and the hurdles they face like the trade war and climate change.
Klobuchar said if she's elected she'll make sure there's consistency with the farm policy.
"The second thing is trade policy and make that more consistent. There's an old saying with trade policy saying keep your promises and keep your threats. This president doesn't do either. The Chinese are watching and that's really hurting especially our soybean farmers and corn growers. The last thing I would do is stop all these wavers to the oil companies," said Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.
Klobuchar also touched on the rural-urban divide.
"To understand rural health care which we talked about today and rural education is not the same as it is in the city. I think that kids that grow up in rural Iowa should be able to live in rural Iowa. I think people in the metro area should understand that food doesn't magically end up on your table," said Klobuchar.
She'll be wrapping up the tour tomorrow with stops in O'Brien, Osceola, and Lyon counties.
