Trump right on trade

I have never voted for a Republican, but if the presidential race goes down to Hillary versus Donald, I will vote for Donald Trump.

Honeywell used to have manufacturing facilities in Spokane. They are now in Thailand. How divisive would it be to slap tariffs on products coming from those locations back to the United States?

Part of my job is to review and evaluate information technology resumes. At least every third of them brags about “managing and working with off-shore teams.” How hateful would it appear to minimize the “off-shoring” of professional work, giving the opportunities to our young specialists?

When Trump talks about the “wall,” this is what he means. And he is totally right in suggesting that our immigration and foreign trade policy should work for the majority of our population, not for international mega-corporations.
