NEW YORK, N.Y. (WHEC) — The president's plan to bail out New York farmers may be expanding despite a pending investigation.

According to the Albany Times Union, the program has given over $90 million to New York farmers. On Friday, the president said in a tweet he may continue the two-year program after a top expert projected that U.S. exports to China will fall short of White House expectations.


Meanwhile, the U.S. Government Accountability Office opened an investigation into the program two weeks ago over allegations that the program unfairly boosts southern and larger farms.
