Why Trump is wrong on trade--guest-worker visa programs
“We don’t have a level playing field for our workers,” President Trump told a group of workers in Kenosha, Wis., Tuesday.
Truth is, if we were to ever level the playing field with countries like Mexico and China, the average American worker would be making $3 an hour and spending their pittance on third-world health care and decrepit housing. Please, don’t level the playing field.
--JS..Cheap shot at Pres Trump..
When few things are going your way in politics,(?) though, it’s customary to return to rhetoric that made you successful. So, as Republicans have been unable to push forward on health-care reform or tax reform — or anything not named Neil Gorsuch, for that matter — it is unsurprising that Trump would turn to protectionism as a way to bolster his political fortunes.
