QUESTION: Do you hear anything that would indicate that Donald Trump would make a positive difference in the Big Bang should he become president?
He says he will jawbone Ford Motor Co/ to not build a plant in Mexico and that he will use some form of tariff to fix the trade balance between China and the U.S.
ANSWER: Trade is not our problem, debt is. The Donald knows all about debt since his corporations have filed for bankruptcy twice. Donald Trump has become infamous for his TV show yelling, Youre fired! every week on primetime television. Yet, after Trumps casino operations filed bankruptcy he remains the chairman, and one must wonder why he is not fired. Trump will remain as chairman and CEO and continue to collect a $2 million dollar paycheck. So, Trump is clever and filed for bankruptcy twice, yet stays in control. He knows how to protect his personal finances. In both instances of Trumps corporations filing for bankruptcy, Trump personally has not. Hence, when his casino fell into about a billion dollars in debt, the corporation filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Trump knows how to reduce his debt through bankruptcy, making his creditors take haircuts. It is called restructuring.
Now, if he wanted to run on a platform that he will restructure the debt, as he is an expert on how to default on his creditors, then perhaps we should listen to his proposal. But so far, he offers nothing new, just the same old nonsense. His announcement to run for president had a big audience; they cheered because they were actors he paid only $50 to show up. You would think he should have paid at least $100 so they could have dinner.
One upside: he could save the government money, since he probably would still fly around in his own Trump Air Force One, which he decked out to rival Obama. As the story goes, Obama flew to Palm Beach to play golf with Tiger Woods and parked in Trumps spot. Trump landed and told his pilot to move right up behind Obamas plane. Secret Service called and warned if he moves one inch further, they would open fire.
Why Not? Couldn’t be worse than Bush or Obama?
In spite of all the non-stereotype thinking, we all might be really surprised. Narrow-minded, shallow thinking, as well as non-thinking, gave us Obama.
Obama has TRUMPed Congress... maybe Trump could trump Obama..
Uhhhh....US workers who lose their manufacturing jobs to overseas competition don't pay the taxes on what they would've earned. They collect government freebies. That adds to debt. Then there's that nasty trade imbalance which has caused the DEBT we owe to Japan and China. Now let's add in the taxes and economic activity those manufacturing operations would generate if they were in the US.
The anti-Trumps are getting irrational in their rantings.
“Trade is not our problem, debt is.”
Trade imbalances cause debt. The United States trade deficit is about 40 billion per month. The United States buys four times as much from China as China buys from the United States.
You can’t have a POTUS who owns that much property in NYC...Plus, he’s not square enough...We don’t need another “Joe Cool” in the WH.
i have a trade imblaance with my grocer, have had for years with only my girth being a problem
Trump’s populist Smoot-Hawley approach is rapidly winning over Americans.
We need to bring back American business, and stop importing everything from China.
Are you sure about that?
What do you think we’re in?
Tens of millions out of work, wages stagnant for decades, few jobs added since 2000...
Service sector low paying jobs now the wave of the future...
Most people would recognize that we’re in a depression.
Just because the government has subsidized it to the point it doesn’t look exactly like one, it doesn’t change the reality of it.
Take a look at the last year of the Bush administration and the full six years of Obama’s.
You can withdraw that question if you like...
Do you really thing the Establishment/Globalist in Washington care more about Americans or RIGGED TRADE DEALS?
We had Tariffs in since the inception of our Republic. Oh where the Founding Fathers against “Free Trade”? No they were all about Freedom, but not RIGGED TRADE AGREEMENTS.
How is it fair the United States is the ONLY COUNTRY THAT STILL PAYS TARIFFS TO FOREIGN COMMUNIST COUNTRIES LIKE CHINA?
I'm sorry you can't piss on us and say it's raining. Please DO NOT FALL FOR THIS B.S.
Now I know why the Establishment/Globalist fear Donald Trump. They know they can't bribe him.
Uhhhh....tax revenue aside, the only thing that adds to the debt is gov’t spending. When your income changes, you adjust accordingly.
