CHINA-DEMOCRAT COLLUSION: Red Threat Focuses New Tariffs on Punishing Crucial 2020 States

Seems like the Chinese communists really want the Democrats to win in 2020.

As the trade war escalates, China is targeting tariffs to hurt pro-Trump states, including crucial swing states in America’s heartland, where President Donald Trump will need votes the most in order to win re-election in 2020.

China announced on Wednesday that the country will levy an additional 25 percent tariff on 106 American products, including pork, soybeans and aircraft, totaling $50 billion in U.S. dollars. This was done as a likely response to Trump’s announcement of tariffs on 1,333 Chinese products.

The soybean tariffs will prove particularly problematic to the U.S. economy, as they are currently the largest U.S. export to China. Rural states that overwhelmingly support Trump will be hit the hardest by China’s new push, which includes 25 percent levies on whiskey and tobacco that are designed to hurt the industry of Kentucky.

China will levy a 15 percent duty on ginseng, which will primarily hurt Wisconsin. Wisconsin produces roughly 85 percent of ginseng exports out of the U.S. to China, and it is one of the states that Trump needs to retain if he wants a second term of his presidency. Tariffs on automobile producers in Michigan are expected to have the same effect.

President Trump responded by focusing his ire on the policies of the Federal Reserve while strengthening his rhetoric against China and the U.S.-based corporations that do business in the hostile communist nation.

Despite what the Chinese communists and their Democratic partners have in store to punish the U.S. economy, Trump refuses to back down on trade as he remains dedicated to making America great again.

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

They will be on their own.

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.
