Donald Trump targets globalization and free trade as job-killers

Via Ryan


An unbiased report?  Goodness, what has become of the MSM..........? :)

While attacking Hillary Clinton and other career politicians, Donald Trump took aim Tuesday at two other prominent election targets: globalization and free trade.

"Globalization has made the financial elite who donate to politicians very, very wealthy ... but it has left millions of our workers with nothing but poverty and heartache," Trump told supporters during a prepared speech targeting free trade in a nearly-shuttered former steel town in Pennsylvania.

In a speech devoted to what he called "How To Make America Wealthy Again," Trump offered a series of familiar plans designed to deal with what he called "failed trade policies" — including rejection of the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) with Pacific Rim nations and re-negotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with Canada and Mexico, withdrawing from it if necessary.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee also said he would pursue bilateral trade agreements rather than multi-national deals like TPP and NAFTA.

  1. I would add that reading Ross Perot's warnings of what would occur should NAFTA be enacted back in 1992 have come to pass. Trump should be using some of those historical facts to show how most trade agreements only make a few people richer while leaving others without a job.

    I read that several days ago, the Mexican President Nieto wants to enter even deeper with Canada and the U.S., eliminating borders much like the E.U.

    1. That's a good point. Why don't you send him an email?
