Considering Trump owes a good deal of his business to globalism and has said in the past


"we will have to leave borders behind and go for global unity."
I would say he is blowing hot air. You can not bring back manufacturing jobs back because Americans cost to much and companies would never be able to compete so they would simply close. The fact is we are still the second largest exporter in the World. A trade war would be devastating to the US. Their is a reason that the nations that most people will not trade with end up the poorest and most backward.


What global competition. We have the best workers and regulations. People would want to buy from us. Ever buy some cheap crap and then go with the elite brand next go around. Same thing. We win because our product is the best. The best always wins out in the end. Not buying we can't compete. I refuse to accept defeatism.


Tell that that someone else. I've often been sadly disappointed with "Made in the USA" products.


Sadly, people overseas are more motivated to just *have* a job, and are willing to work harder for less money than in America. That means increased profits and more reliable products.

Trump doesn’t know the difference between Globalism and the Globe Trotters

And since when does the GOP give a damn about globalism. They give the corporations ALL they ask for and more

They always vote for the trade deals even more than the democrats

Reading this , perhaps Trump is not the one that does not understand "globalism or globalists"

Globalism only makes sense if we are fighting and or working with extraterrestrials.

So why are the elite covering up the cosmic reality?

Does this mean his hideous ties are going to be made here in the United States? It would be nice if he lead by example in this regard and had his products manufactured domestically. I have a very hard time taking this seriously, regardless of whether I agree with his policies, if he is not walking the walk.



You, sir, are far smarter than that. In fact, your smarter than me. Obviously, one does business and 'keeps up with the Jones', so to speak, or one loses. period.

Who better than a capitalist to fix capitalism? Certainly not a globalist...or a candidate purchased by the Globalists.

In this Trump is spot on. You know this. I know you do....

Which is why I pointed it out. He is being hypocritical.

I am personally willing to pay for a quality item made here or in Europe. For what he charges for a made in China product I would rather spend a little more and get something of a higher quality and more unique.

Trump is bashing the global crowd now.

And he has presented a 7 point jobs plan for America.

He is denouncing trade deals and say Hillary actually is in favor of the TPP.

He says the global elite are getting rich off political backing and rigging the system.

Well, the question is:
Does Trump really mean what he says?

Or is he just blowing wind and has no intentions of doing what he says?

Donald Trump Slams Globalism in Trade Speech


In a major speech on trade, GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump announced a seven-point plan on bringing back jobs to America, while hammering his general election rival Hillary Clinton on promoting a globalist trade policy that has pushed manufacturing jobs overseas.

“Our politicians have aggressively pursued a policy of globalization that has moved our jobs, our wealth and our factories to Mexico and overseas,” Trump said, giving his prepared remarks called “How To Make America Wealthy Again” in Western Pennsylvania. “The people who rigged the system are supporting Hillary Clinton because they know as long as she is in charge nothing will ever change.”

Trump added, “Globalization has made the financial elite who donates to politicians very wealthy but has left millions of our workers with nothing but poverty and heartache.”




I feel sometimes you are a shill for the right wing, however I cannot disagree with the point here. People can't even get along with their own families let alone everyone getting along with the rest of the world. I feel we are about 1,000 years of physiological evolution before we can be one world and one race... the human race.

Did anyone else notice that part of Hillary's platform is globalism and the other part is exposing the cosmic reality?

Well, I don't see it. You have your choice in the quality of your purchased goods as everyone else.

Also, his choice. and apparently, a successful choice as well. THAT is the quality I would have in the POTUS. Not the alternative whatsoever.

What you label hypocrisy is see as changing the 'hat' from entrepreneur to potential President. Perfectly reasonable.

I see that as a 'do as I say, not as I do' policy. He made his money on that product by having it manufactured overseas but now he wants to prevent others from doing the same via tariffs or embargoes?

No.

There are quite a few concepts of WHAT globalism is.



Manfred Steger distinguishes between different globalisms such as justice globalism, jihad globalism, and market globalism.[1]

What's your definition of it?


Trump talks a good game but in office he would likely fold like a cheap camera.

Hillary is also weak against Globalism. Her husband is and was terrible and Obama is the worst

Either way were f___ed, Trump and Hillary are corporate flunkies who both will advance globalism

Bernie was the only one who wouldn't but he cant win

I buy Chinese products. I don't like buying Chinese products. Many people are in the same boat.

I give Trump the benefit of the doubt realizing that business is business. I presume to believe that Trump would change the game so to allow businessmen more option in where their products are made/manufactured.

Once again, level the playing field a bit.

It surely won't happen if Hillary is elected. It 'might'...just might if Trump is....

He blames the politicians, which is fair, but why do the people that lobbied them get the pass?

Oh maybe it is because those are his business partners...

Well, he's right. Because take NAFTA, for example. This is a trade deal between Canada, USA, Mexico.

But, it's only a deal for the rich.

If you have lots of money, you can now freely invest in any of the 3 amigos. Multinational corporations can easily set up shop in the 3 amigos. Goods flow freely between the 3 amigos.

But, "PEOPLE" can't move around among the 3 amigos. The little guy is "EXCLUDED" from the deal.

The rich always had the ability to live and work anywhere they wanted in the world. But, the middle class usually has to stay put, wherever they are.

The middle class and the working class are like "caged animals", while the rich strut about like the game keepers and the wardens, tossing tidbits of scraps to them through their cage bars from time to time to feed them the scraps.

Any deal, that allows the rich to move and work and invest their funds, should allow all people to do the same.

Then, it would benefit the people.

But, right now, only the 1% benefit from NAFTA.

Oh come now. Led by example? Manufacturing has been driven out, good luck finding much of it.

Hideous ties? After the empire building and globalist agenda we've seen from the US government how could his hideous ties be somehow more sinister than the alternative? Iraq, Libya, Syria, come on.... how are his ties, in business, more hideous that the imperial designs of our government.

I expect better of you. Be clever or be smart, but don't be average. The realistic alternative here is Hillary, who will push those same world building and imperial ideas.

I've always pushed for 3rd party viability and voting for them, but in this election we're getting down to some hard decisions.

That's great for you and I who can afford a higher quality product made elsewhere... the problem is the economy here has been destroyed by allowing the open flow of cheap crap from elsewhere. Now people that work here are more and more frequently being financially locked out of making that decision.

The reality is not everybody here can be an engineer or a skilled worker. We need to maintain a higher quality of living for the working class.

Trump doesn't strike me as having a great desire to become president. Such a speech like he just gave is really just preaching to the converted. Trump should be taking his message of better education , health care and jobs into Urban centers/areas of high unemployment. By the force of his personality Trump could have a decent crack at say winning over the lower income African American vote.

How does creating a trade tariff or embargo create more options? It limits them. He stated that his goal would be to force manufactures to not go overseas.
