As Trump touts achievements, farmers feel the strain during government shutdown

South Georgia farmer Bill Brim has been in business more than 30 years.
He told ABC News that farmers in his area were hit hard by Hurricane Michael in October and are now facing even more challenges because of the partial government shutdown.

"Whatever it costs us as far as dealing with the problems I think we need that," Brim told ABC News.

And I feel like there's a lot of other people coming in other than just our laborers that are coming in to work."
