The Koch brothers the billionaire plutocrats and GOP mega-donors network of organizations are railing against President Trumps tariffs on China to protect American workers and U.S. industry.

They are every bit as evil as Soros.
I want income taxes eliminated.

There is no such thing as “Free Trade”, they may call it that, but that doesn’t make it so.
Koch Brothers: We must be able to export jobs and American industry to China.
As bad as Soros.
So, do they make money from China- or are they being blackmailed?
Someone should look into it.
China is big on getting ‘the goods’ on important people.
They want that cheap goods from China.
Yup. The globalists come in all types, but all all greedy.
Maybe more so.These guys are American.
