President Trump Puts Multinational Corporations on Notice: ‘Start Looking for an Alternative to China’

Trump wants U.S. corporations to be more patriotic.

President Donald Trump is rapidly escalating his trade war with China, and drawing a line in the sand for multinational corporations.

He laid down the gauntlet in a series of tweets from earlier today:

Trump’s strong words had an immediate impact on the stock market today, as it fluctuated downward as a result. Globalist lobbying groups like the National Retail Federation and the Chamber of Commerce are particularly perturbed and sounding the alarm about Trump’s demands from the capitalist class.

“The U.S. Chamber has been on the front lines of efforts to resolve these challenges through negotiation and encouraging tough action by the United States government,” wrote Myron Brilliant, Executive Vice President and Head of International Affairs for the U.S. Chamber.

“Despite our concerns, the 40-year old trade relationship between our two countries has been for the most part productive, constructive, and mutually beneficial. U.S. companies have been ambassadors for positive changes to the Chinese economy that continue to benefit both our people,” Brilliant added.

“For years, retailers have been diversifying their supply chains, but finding alternative sources is a costly and lengthy process that can take years,” said National Retail Federation senior vice president for government relations David French in a statement. “It is unrealistic for American retailers to move out of the world’s second largest economy, as 95 percent of the world’s consumers live outside our borders.”

Trump does not share the point of view with the corporate lobbyists, and wants multinational corporations to back him as he works to pull the American economy from China’s death grip.

The nation can not be great again without companies fully on board about putting America first. Economic patriotism is key, as FOX News commentator Tucker Carlson has explained on his titular TV show.

Trump and Carlson are correct. Corporations and companies must serve the American worker, not vice versa. It’s come time to pick a side, and either stand with the U.S. or stand with the ruthless Chinese communists.

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.
