John Boyd Jr. illuminates how of the $40 billion in aid sent to Ukraine, no aid is coming to offset the cost of rising diesel and fertilizer prices for America’s farmers on ‘Hannity.’

JOHN BOYD JR. Thanks for having me tonight. We are currently in a crisis for farmers in America. Diesel fuel prices are at an all-time high. Here in Virginia, I pay $5. 63 diesel fuel. We saw an all-time high in fertilizer prices. I’m paying $900 an ounce, people. That’s $900 a ton for fertilizer, $25,000 fertilizer bill that we’re looking at right now. America needed to support America’s farmers. We have just provided relief to Ukraine, and we will be taking into account some losses in the form wheat and other commodities. But we just provided Ukraine with $40 billion in aid and nothing in that spending package for America’s farmers. I believe Chairman Scott was trying his best to work across lines and get some things done. America must come back together and work together from the same seed. It is divided right now. Our country is divided on the basis of race. We are divided by bitterness and hate. You know that love is always more powerful than hate. We have to find a way for us to work together to get things done.
