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.

Published

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.

AMERICA FIRST: Kanye West Bringing Adidas Headquarters, Manufacturing Jobs to Wyoming

West, a Trump supporter, wants to bring manufacturing jobs back to America.

Published

on

Kanye West is set to bring hundreds of manufacturing jobs to the United States through moving production facilities of his Adidas Yeezys brand to the country from nations such as China, Cambodia and Vietnam.

West plans on opening a facility in Cody, Wyoming, near where the rapper acquired the Bighorn Mountain Ranch with the intention of making it his primary residence.

Kanye grew a strong attachment with the Mountain West state after recording his 2018 album ‘Ye’ in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Steve Smith, Yeezys’s production designer, spoke of West’s desire to bring back manufacturing jobs from abroad during a fashion industry event in November.

We’re going to bring jobs back here. We’re going to make Yeezys in America. This is revolution.”

In an ironic twist, a Dutch NGO is scolding West over his plan to move jobs to America from the Asian countries.

The Clean Clothes Campaign claims that West is negatively impacting the sweatshop workers that currently manufacture Adidas Yeezy products in dismal workplace conditions. The charity maintains they’d be better off with their existing employment structure, under which many earn no more than $4 a day.

Many American companies outsource their manufacturing and business operations under the premise of profiting from the sweatshop conditions prevalent in the East Asian labor markets.

It doesn’t occur to “charitable” organizations such as the Clean Clothes campaign that the most effective way to shut down such employment models would be to move manufacturing to nations with far more decent and fair labor conditions, such as the United States.

Adidas Yeezys is already subletting a factory in Cody. The brand is seeking at least a dozen new workers for the operation from the local community.
