Trump perfectly digs the shiv into Obama and Bush over giving away all our manufacturing to China

By Patrick following x   2017 Nov 10, 7:16pm 470 views   32 comments   watch   quote     share  


Emerging after two hours of talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Trump said he doesn't fault China for taking advantage of differences between the way the two countries do business.

"I don't blame China," Trump said during remarks to business leaders inside the Great Hall of the People. "After all, who can blame a country for being able to take advantage of another country for benefit of their citizens? I give China great credit."

Instead of pointing the finger at Beijing for exacerbating trade disputes, Trump blamed past US administrations "for allowing this trade deficit to take place and to grow."

Trump is absolutely right. You can't blame China for accepting an awesome deal. It's like any of us accepting a brand new $80K Mercedes for $10K from a drunk dealer.

Evidently 62 million + 2 are foolish enough to think there is anything substantive to this retarded pissant other than his desire to shit on any existing structure and to masturbate in front of a camera. Sad.

Another post for you to delete Patrick.

How clueless does someone have to be to blame globalization on Bush and Obama ? Do you think we could have had a world where the average person in china lived on under a dollar a day, while we consumed the way we do indefinitely ?

We all know why you buy Trumps nonsense.

I guess it's true that the bar has been so low, that we should be glad Trump isn't sticking to all his previous rhetoric about China. Thank God for small favors. He's also acting like maybe he's not going to start WW3 with N. Korea.

OH thank goodness. Look at the 5 D chess.

Obama's guilty of selling out America to China, but no more so than any other president since Nixon, and certainly not as much as Reagan, Clinton, and the two Bushes. Most of that manufacturing was given to China in the 1980s and 1990s. Putting all the blame on Obama is just inaccurate.

I’m not. I pumped most of my cash into the market when I saw it spiking in January as Trump took office. It’s literally been a windfall for me. Now I wonder if 2018 will be another year of gains or should I sell now and move the money into something less exciting but more stable.

I did the same thing in November, when the prediction of a crash after his election never came. I took 100K that was sitting on the sidelines and made a quick 10%. I jumped back out when the market went sideways for a while in March. I kick myself, in hindsight, for not staying in with that chunk, but all my other accounts continue to climb.

That's true. It's been ongoing to decades. I blamed Obama and Bush too much, but just because they are the most recent presidents to go along with the destruction of US manufacturing.

THat destruction of US manufacturing goes along with cheap imports, cheaper than we can make them here, because of how poor they are there.

Do you think the clothing we buy here should be made in America ? Maybe it will be soon, when clothes can be "printed."

Is it that we shouldn't have allowed free markets and capitalism to grow ? Some things are far outside the job description of President.

Right wingers complained when Obama tried to support investment (including government investment) in green energy manufacturing, which of course China dominates.

How well did that work out, or to state it a different way, how many BILLIONS did that cost the taxpayers?

No, it's because special snowflakes think they're worth $15/hr to do a basic job. The problem is here, with a lazy workforce that wants everything GIVEN to them, instead of WORKING for it.

Then you should credit all these presidents for keeping America as the most powerful and richest nation in the world.

The deal is USA has to move up the chain which is what the Silicon valley has helped them in the last 30 years. Now understandably that created a social problem as to what to do with millions who were thrown out of manufacturing and became unemployed and you can fault previous presidents for that. But that is another argument.

When did Nixon confer most favored-nation status to China?

1972?

Nixon must have been impressed by an 11-year Kenyan jihadi from Indonesia ordering him to designate China a most-favored nation and opening the gate to imports.

When McArthur took control of occupied Japan, he instituted unions, promoted the press and imposed a democratic constitution. The union thing got strange and the Japan instituted their own culture of industrial dialog between labor and capital but the rest endured.

The states should ask for no less of China. Elections, unions, press are bare minimums. Otherwise, you cunts can trade in your own shit however you like, slave-state goods aren't being sold in the USA! no matter how vigorously you blow us.

I talked to my brother for the first time in months. Last Thanksgiving he was full bore Libtard under the impression that Hillary was still a saint, and Trump was going to crash the economy.

Today he was telling the economy is so well he just bought a 60K 24ft fishing boat. He was calling Trump "The President".

He was complaining about his tax load and his premium prices, when I told him Trump is working on fixing that. He didn't lodge a bunch of Leftard defeatist bullshit at me like he did that last time we spoke about politics.
