In three of his last projects Trump didn't buy American - he bought cheaper steel and aluminum that China was dumping (below cost) on the US market - and hid the source through a series of shell corporations.

Then he has the gall to tweet:
"We are going to bring steel and manufacturing back to Indiana!"



..and rant that "We allowed foreign countries to subsidize their goods, devalue their currencies, violate their agreements and cheat in every way imaginable. And our politicians did nothing about it,"

"The legacy of Pennsylvania steelworkers lives in the bridges, railways and skyscrapersthat make up our great American landscape. But our workers' loyalty — you know it better than anybody — was repaid with total betrayal."

It's our government's fautlt that it's even possible. Think about it. We scrap our cars and junk. It gets freighted 1/2 way around the world, smelted, manufactured into a new product, then shipped back across the world and importer to distributors tax free cheaper than we can producte it here with our own materials and labor.

These multi-national trade agreements screwed us over. Trump wants to end that, clinton wants even bigger free trade agreements.

Clinton screwed them with NAFTA. He never let them in the WTO either. He never let China go unpunished and thus encouraged them to manipulate the currency over and over.

Trump wasn't in office when China dumped the steel. The politicians who let that happen encouraged buyers of cheep steel. Lots of business people bought it or they wouldn't have been able to compete with those that did.

Another BS story about how Trump should have done something stupid but is a bad guy because he didn't. Had he bought the more expensive steel and failed to make a profit on the project they would criticize him for being a bad business person who bought to high and risk bankruptcy.

What I find amazing, is that the first link is from June...and not a thing to back up anything stated, not a quote, not a link....nothing....

Now what else I find amazing, the second link does the exact same thing as the first....

I'd be more worried about a comment like this:

Just another example how the example of Trump doesn't make America Great.

He pays no taxes
Insults fat people
Berates women
Uses a proven illegal foundation illegally
Bribes prosecutors to get out of court
Pays off tax assessors to lower taxes
Buys all Chinese products and steel
Hires illegal workers
Imports foreign workers
Goes to Cuba against the embargo

All proven all facts

One of only reasons he has any support is many Americans think all of this is okay just as long as he pretends to be a Christian.

Christian????

Why do you think he was given a Jewish Bible?

Trumps screws US workers - bought his building steel and aluminum from China.


When Donny does that the Trumpettes say 'Good business decision!'

When another company does that Donny and the Trumpettes cry 'Un-American!'

Buncha damn hypocrites!

And just like the first 2 links, not a single link to back anything up....

Who woulda thunk it?

Trumpettes feel the same way about facts as cats do about going swimming.
