When Donald Trump talks about “Making America Great Again”, he often references China and says “America doesn’t win anymore”. As a very successful businessman, he unequivocally says he is the best man to reverse this outcome and once again, place America in the winner circle on international trade transactions. Trump, more than any of the other candidates, is the perfect person for improving the nation’s economy. Take the deals the United States has recently cut with China and how this impacts employment in the U.S.
Experts agree that when imports “surge, there are significant negative effects on employment– total job losses from rising Chinese import competition over 1999-2011” were in the range of 2-2.4 million. People who lose high-paying jobs in manufacturing can find alternative work – but typically at a much lower wage in a low-productivity part of the service sector.”
Trump has been preaching the need for America to get a bigger slice of the pie for months, but his critics say he doesn’t provide a roadmap for arriving there. We feel that winning at the bargaining table is an art, not something that you explicitly write down for others to follow– you have the natural ability to lead in the business arena, or you don’t. Trump claims he can reverse the trend of America getting the short end of the stick, and we have not heard anything to contradict this assertion. The other candidates appear weak where our economy is concerned.
