I want to point out—and it’s not nit-picking—politicians don’t ship jobs anywhere. The President’s party championed the lowering of trade barriers for decades, and Americans were assured that a steady supply of cheaper consumer goods was in their interest. 1/3
2/3 Even with smarter and more efficient work, Americans couldn’t beat workers making a tenth as much on price. Business owners created global supply chains to find the lowest-cost labor possible.
3/3 Politicians didn’t have workers crate up production equipment for shipment elsewhere in the world. Politicians didn’t order foremen to train their foreign replacements. They were under constant pressure from capitalists to lower tariffs, and end protection of US industry
