10. Explain this to the farmers

So many of the farmers who still support Trump have convinced themselves that they are making a sacrifice for country. They're the brave patriots who are holding the line so that Trump can beat China and get us all to a better trading position.

When Trump caves, it will be a lot harder for farmers to hold on to that illusion. On the other hand, they may just double-down since admitting they were conned by a narcissistic idiot is never easy.
