A Ford Focus has an inherent market value in this country. People are not going to pay more just because Ford is being charged a tariff. When Ford realizes their $30,000 Focus is not moving, they'll do something about it.

I'll answer that.

Because he's a royal douchebag.

Consumers are hurt by not having jobs. Pulling out of these free trade agreements will fix that.
I wasn't responding to a proposal to pull out of free trade agreements. I was responding to the idea (post #43) that Trump's wall could be paid for by adding a 35% tariff on Fords made in Mexico.

Ford decided years ago to move the plants to the U.S.

That is what pulling out of free trade means. Tarrifs.

I know it would be fun to go see Mr. Trump at a stadium with thousands of people.

What I don't understand is why some people would listen to basically the same speech of no substance over and over and over.

But hey, we all have to amuse ourselves with something. Mr. Trump's body of work that I prefer are the Apprentice and WWE Wrestlemania 23.

Apparently there were over 16,000 at this rally.

Other candidates would be happy with a 10th this number.

Substance? Trumps speeches have plenty of substance. Even his detractors, such as yourself can't stop talking about him month after month. This speaks for itself.

I used the Focus as an example. The particular car or model doesn't matter. Since you had no answer to my larger point you resorted to triviality. If I had mentioned black Fords you would have said Ford doesn't make black Fords in Mexico, only blue ones.
