    Just seems as if #45 is getting even crazier -- even by his standards. I don't think he knows that he can't order companies to do what he says.






    Donald J. Trump


    @realDonaldTrump



    Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing...your companies HOME and making your products in the USA. I will be responding to China’s Tariffs this afternoon. This is a GREAT opportunity for the United States. Also, I am ordering all carriers, including Fed Ex, Amazon, UPS and the Post Office, to SEARCH FOR & REFUSE,........all deliveries of Fentanyl from China (or anywhere else!). Fentanyl kills 100,000 Americans a year. President Xi said this would stop - it didn’t. Our Economy, because of our gains in the last 2 1/2 years, is MUCH larger than that of China. We will keep it that way!

    Just details. The criticism of TPP was that it bound corporations to trade with small producers in small countries that joined first until their available supply was exhausted as opposed to allowing corporations to contract globally for the goods its needs with the suppliers they deemed best for their needs.

    So, Trump's gone socialist. Companies are apparently under the central control of the government.

    I bet his base, which hated socialism, suddenly likes socialism. Well, this socialism, because you know, Trump proposed it.

    Trump's gone full socialist. More so than Obama or any Dem in recent memory. Let's see if his base reacts, because we all know how much they hate socialism.

    But the agricorps have undoubtedly made out like bandits, buying up bankrupt farms for pennies on the dollar. And I'm guessing they are also raking in large on those billions in subsidies put in place by the Trump administration. Subsidies which probably require a lot of paperwork, and a lot of time, exactly what will bankrupt farmers, and play right into large corporation's wheelhouse's as they have lawyers on staff to handle paperwork like this.


    I would be interested in seeing how much of America's farmland is now owned by foreign entities.

    He's a Fascist and always had authoritarian tendencies. He loves Putin and Kim because he admires dictatorships, as long as he's the dictator.

    I just like the "American companies are hereby ordered to..." line. Is there any doubt this guy thinks he's King? Jesus.
    Add it to the pile of “can you imagine how these dip****s would have reacted if Obama said it?”
