When was the last time we were on an equal playing field with trade and the rest of the world; if ever? Colonial days……..maybe? My knowledge of the economy and trade from that far back is not good. Not taught much in school. Oh, world history taught what each countries industrial strengths and resources were but not about fair or equal trade.
If you think we’ve been on a fair/equal playing field look in your closet. Made in China, dominates. You’d be hard pressed to find Made in the USA. I would love to be visiting an average working Chinese home, look in their closet for “Made in the USA” clothing. I doubt it would reflect the USA. It isn’t just clothing, turn something over in your living room, what’s the label say? Made in China or another foreign country.
I’d rather have a president trying to equal things out, and make some mistakes along the way………rather than do nothing; which has been our nations status quo for way too long.
Something is worth trying vs. nothing!
