What happened was Obama gave a shit ton of money to Solar City or w/e to make solar panels.

Because China did not respect that weak POS, they flooded our solar panel market with insanely cheap, government subsidized solar panels.

Trump is now telling China to fuck off.

I believe it was Solyndra.

I heard from others here, Solyndra loans were part of a money funneling scheme. But don't quote me on it.

I heard that too, but a lot of American companies got shafted when the Chinese subsidized their solar industry to flood the market. German companies too were virtually wiped out of the industry.

Solar City got money from NY State, Solyndra from Obama's stimulus program.

So this is another case of attempting to solve a problem caused by government intervention with more government intervention?

Great plan

The reason why there are borders and why borders must exist: our country's government intervening to solve a problem caused by another country's government.

Edit: striking irrelevant commentary

So the US government should allow China to keep pumping our country full of subsidized solar panels?
