Trumps election and subsequent actions since have only confirmed what most around the planet already know - Obama (and Hillary) are yesterdays irrelevance that no-one cares about, it's time for new ideas, new concepts, new deals - it's what the American people voted for and it appears to be a good decision - the bloke is already at work and he's not even at work yet!!!

I don't think Trump has the power to fundamentally change the way the corporate oligarchy operates.

But the oligarchy will definitely change Trump. He has already bailed on some of his key campaign promises like deporting 3 million Mexicans. Looks like the cheap labor gets to stay.

And prosecuting Clinton.

Just a big talker...How stupid do you have to be to believe anything he says?

And look at Trumps appointees...old school DC insiders.

Don't mean to derail the thread but I was curious. Trump is in the midst of what clearly must be a huge and comprehensive IRS audit given how long it's taking. Now he gets to appoint the head of the IRS. How can anyone have faith in the outcome of the audit? Self preservation on the part of the IRS team doing the audit would certainly favor 'look the other way' if anything dodgy is found.

I wonder what Trump supporters will be saying once this 35% tariff is enacted and everyone is suddenly paying 35% more for everything.

New ideas? Tariffs are ideas from the 1700's. What's so new about them?

Not by making it sooooooo expensive for businesses that you force them to move out of the country.

Not knocking trump however:

The only way you will be able to accomplish this is by bringing Americas standard of living down to Third world levels , so we can compete.

The reality is you would have to force business to stay via regulations and penalties or pay them to stay.

America can't keep its standard of living and compete against slave labor , non worker rights, non benefits, cost of living and non regulations in Third world countries. The 3rd highly unlikely option is to make Global worker rights, benefits, and regulations, which will never happen.

Another issue with keeping manufacturing jobs is, are they even going to be required 20 years from now? With automation,robotics, and 3d printing technologies making big leaps within the next 20 years are those jobs even needed.


Personally , I think the bigger issue in the US is the H1 Visa jobs being taken by foreign workers for cheaper wages and overhead.

Well walmart and other places where the middle to lower class can afford to shop are going to either go out of business or significantly raise their prices.......

Those are the people that are going to suffer the most

He's a corporate welfare shill.
Just look at Carrier.


Face it. What happened to pure-unadulterated-free-let-the-market-decide capitalism?

I think there is someone on food stamps who needs investigating.
So I'll see you later.


So lowering taxes on huge employers to incentivize them to keep their jobs in the U.S. is corporate welfare?

So instead of incentivizing job providers to stay and taxing the ones who import cheap goods to even the playing field, what would you suggest?

What is your alternative? I bet you won't even answer.

"Corporate welfare"? Please explain this term to me. Explain to me how in the last 8 years, without this "corporate welfare" more companies have outsourced and even physically moved to other countries leaving hard working good American citizens without work or money to care for their families?

Please tell me how that is better for them?

A business runs to make a profit. If you make it less profitable here for them to remain in business, they WILL find another country that allows them to make that profit when it is less expensive to "make their product" there and ship it back here.

Please explain how this benefits Americans?


So let me understand this...

You're not really for let the market decide Capitalism?

You're for bailing out business' that fail just because they're "American".


Great logic there.


It's not bailing them out. It's lowering their taxes. It's not costing tax payers anything out of their pockets. A bail out would be to give them a loan of some sort.

How is this not capitalism? If it is capitalism now then it will be capitalism then also being that nothing will change except the tax rate.

Do you have a problem with keeping jobs in the U.S.? Are an American that lives in the U.S.?

If you do want to keep jobs in the U.S. and you are an American that lives in the U.S. then I have a question for you.

What alternative from the OP do you offer as a solution to keep jobs in the U.S.?

paying TAXES


I like how you had to shout "taxes", all the while defending the business not having to pay "TAXES" while they suck on the "TAX payers" nipple.

Great logic there.


In what way are they sucking on the tax payers nipple? Explain YOUR logic.

It takes multiple tweets, at 144 max character each, to get the message across. Spelling and grammar errors? are you stupid, short cuts and truncated words are used to get the messages within character count.
Why are you son anal, full of hate of Trump, I'll guess.

The IRS has been auditing Trump for the past 8 years (under Obama) so no cheating. Now that he is President, the IRS does Trumps taxes, and that is public info.

The 35% tariff is NOT across all products, only those products that were previously USA built, but production moved out of the USA, just to lower costs and then are sold back to the US. All of these products have competitors with USA built products which will not have a tariff.
