Do we keep trudging against change and continue to think that we can solve the economy or do we change the problems with the system and distribution in the first place?
If we don't need people anymore for jobs what do we do?

We used to manufacture clothes, appliances, cars, furniture. We could be somewhat self sufficient as a country. Now we are almost totally dependent on other countries to supply us with the goods we need to survive. Of course a global economy has its benefits. But not when the strength and stability of one country is totally destroyed at the benefit of other countries.
Trump understands that the future of our country is looking very bleak, and I believe he wants to fix it, and knows how to do this.

You replace humans with machines on the front and this what happens. The more tech grows the more Human jobs would be lost.
