Oklahoma congressman Markwayne Mullin called for U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue to be fired or to step down over the USDA's response to COVID-19 in relation to farmers and ranchers.

"Today, not a single direct payment from the Department of Ag went to a farmer or rancher, not a single payment. Farmers and ranchers are businesses too; they employ people. And they also feed us," said Mullin.

Shortly after the Congressman published that video the USDA announced it would provide up to $16-billion in direct payments to farmers and ranchers. CLICK HERE For more info
