And the right likes to say Obama was weakening the military.

And I remember people like you defending Bush, while he was doing it. Obamas bailouts actually pale in comparison.

No, we are bailing out farmers because of brand new trade policies put in place by Donald Trump.

Why spend money on campaigns when you can do it with the taxpayers money? If he cared about illegals he wouldn't be hiring them at his resorts.

The economic point of trade is for both nations to benefit; you get more or what you want, I get more or what I want and overall more units of goods are created at market efficient prices.

On the whole, America long ago chose to specialize economically in higher-end services + technology while outsourcing most mass production for cheaper consumer prices. Obviously works well for those up and coming nations as well.

You cannot praise capitalism and free markets in one breath (while decrying "socialism") and then cry for government intervention in the next. If you want the government to pick the winners and losers in a global market, fine, but call it what it is.

If only team D offered up better solutions or had the moral high ground to critique Trumps socialism, bailouts, subsidies, taxes, trade blunders, policy misteps...
