Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) took aim at President Donald Trump’s trade agenda today, essentially holding the President’s proposed trade deal hostage unless he removes tariffs.

In an op/ed published by the globalist Wall Street Journal, Grassley paid lip service to the economic progress caused by Trump’s trade policies before giving the President an ultimatum: end the tariffs or he will sink the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

“The administration can take the lead by promptly lifting tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada and Mexico and working with allies to address the true source of overcapacity: China,” wrote Grassley, who serves as chairman of the Finance Committee.

Here are some their selected tweets laying out exactly what is happening right now with the Trump administration fighting the corporate power structure to help the U.S. economy:

Trump has to fight the orthodoxy of both major political parties in order to get anything done. It’s amazing he has achieved so many accomplishments with the entrenched forces out to destroy him. Draining the swamp will never be easy, with snakes like Grassley lacking the courage to stand for ‘America First.’

POLL: Truck Drivers Won’t Deliver to Cities With Defunded Police Departments

They will be on their own.

Published

A poll conducted among truck drivers by an industry organization reveals that a substantial majority of drivers will decline to deliver shipping loads to cities that “defund” their police departments, a new progressive policy proposal gaining acceptance in many Democratic cities in the wake of the death of George Floyd and the race riots that followed.

The poll was conducted by trucking industry news site CDLLife. The company polled CDL license holders on its app, asking “Would you pick up/deliver to cities with defunded or disbanded police departments? Why or why not?”

A whopping 77% of truck drivers who use the app said that they would not engage in trucking in cities without police departments. Some drivers explained their reasoning.

I will not deliver to an area with a disbanded police department. My life matter and I do this for my family. We are already at the mercy of these towns and cities with laws and hate against us for parking, getting a meal or even using a restroom.

For my own safety and security of my customers’ loads, I have already informed my dispatcher that I will refuse all loads to cities that have defunded their police departments.

Trucking remains one of the most dangerous jobs in the country, more so than actually being a police officer. Department of Labor research has indicated truck driving is the most dangerous job in the country, rated through fatalities per capita.

One Minneapolis truck driver was attacked by a mob of rioters staging a roadblock on a public highway. The rioters were seen attacking the man’s truck and assailing his windshield after he tried to drive through their dangerous checkpoint. Remarkably, the driver himself was detained by the Minneapolis Police Department after the permitted rioters to shut down the highway, but was later released from custody without charges.
