So here we have Donald Trump campaigning for President, and one of his primary claims is that he’s not going to be beholden to anyone. He’s not taking money from lobbyists, so he can make all his decisions on what is best for the country.
But then, out of all the candidates for president, he is taking the strongest position backing the ethanol lobby. Most of the candidates are willing to let ethanol subsidies alone. Ted Cruz wants to do away with them. Donald Trump is the only one who says he wants to increase them.
Trump says he used to be a member of the establishment, then he decided to break with the establishment and run for President. It kind of looks like he is back to cozying up to the establishment.
Do you agree? Disagree? I welcome your comments.

Call it the establishment or the ethanol lobby, Donald Trump’s support of the ethanol mandate is disappointing.
