The man of the people ... doing for the greater good of the people ... set in place by the people ... to the chagrin of the anti-people.

While he expands the NSA. Appointed a pajeet to run the FCC. Has the authority to fire a huge portion of the staff in that "swamp" he's supposed to drain (the positions do not need to be filled again anytime soon). Oh and Hillary suffered enough.

I mean, you’re not wrong.. I don’t think any of these leaders are on the side of the people. You can’t appoint a wolf to lead the sheep to anywhere other than their demise.

Trade reciprocity is not the whole story. We also need parity of labor laws. If a country allows sweat shops, it's products should have a high tariff to encourage making it at home. Preferably with high tech automation.

Nail on head. Same for countries with few or no regulations trying to sell into a market where domestic producers face a raft of regulations. Same for companies/industries that receive state support in their home markets selling into foreign markets. And even just to protect important, high employment industries in your own market in a display of good old fashioned protectionism. There are many, many variables in international trade that will always necessitate tariffs and trade barriers, the whole "free trade makes us all richer" is just more catchphrase politics from the hard of thinking.

"Free trade makes us all richer" is neoliberal poison.

It's probably best to wait on us and find out who is he main person of the branch in your ghetto and rectify the situation.

We should be using tariffs and the like to be looking out for our best interests... other countries are going to do the same

I always find it funny that the left screams that tarriffs are evil, and then goes on to completely ignore that every country in the world imposes tarriffs on the US. The reasoning makes more sense, when you realize the democrats want the US to be the literal dumping ground of every other country's deplorables and junk.

To add to this,

They want America to be the “Beta Bucks” for the rest of the world.

Despite their constant decades-long complaint about America being World Police, in truth, they have been addicted to America being reliable and always bailing out of trouble when things go wrong.

Maybe at the top but most of the left is so ideologically subverted they can be shown a single photo and think they have full understanding of an issue based on morality. They have no goals even though it seems that way. Their leaders have goals and understand what's happening. They're pissed that Trump is trying to split the black vote.

People who say tariffs are evil are most certainly not on the left. They seem to think economics is like gender: "well I may despise the working class, but I self-identify as left wing"

It blows my mind that the left spins fair trade deals as the worst thing the president is doing when its the fucking other countries that react with bullshit moves against america in the first place.. makes you wonder whos side the media companies are on.

One just has to look at the mess GATT made of everything in the 1970's, when these artificial barriers we being pushed globally, Trade needs to be on level playing field. The US negotiators in the past did not always bargain that hard for our rights

[–] Dfens [S] 2 points 1 points (+3|-2) ago 

The United States is insisting that all countries that have placed artificial Trade Barriers and Tariffs on goods going into their country, remove those Barriers & Tariffs or be met with more than Reciprocity by the U.S.A. Trade must be fair and no longer a one way street! -- https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1010978975391322112
