Protestors at Joe Biden’s Detroit rally unveiled banners exposing the Democratic frontrunner’s dismal record on trade policy, having supported all of the terrible trade and outsourcing arrangements that have decimated middle-class manufacturing jobs in the midwestern state.
Watch video of the display here:
The former Vice President took to immediately likening the labor protestors to ‘Bernie Bros’ and simultaneously asking if they had been sent to the event by Donald Trump.
The protestor’s banners delivered a clear message on their opposition to Biden, stating that ‘NAFTA Killed Our Jobs’ and that ‘Biden Betrayed Workers.’
Joe Biden has in fact spearheaded the globalist push for trade deals such as NAFTA and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Such global trade agreements have gutted the industrial and manufacturing sectors of states such as Michigan, a reality that Donald Trump called attention to in 2016 in order to become the first Republican to win the state in a Presidential election in a generation.
Bernie Sanders also has a track record of opposing Biden’s disastrous trade deals. But polls thus far do indicate that Biden leads Sanders handily for the primary in the midwestern state, which will occur in Tuesday.
Should Biden win the nomination, the Democratic Party will have once more nominated a candidate with a clear track record in support of Hillary Clinton’s infamous globalist vision– “a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.”
Those weren’t the only protestors who interrupted the event, either. Reports indicate that Biden’s rally was disrupted more than once by pro-worker protestors who oppose the career politician’s lifelong record in support of outsourcing and globalist trade deals.
This Biden rally was supposed to be a show of force in Michigan. It started like an hour late and has been interrupted by protestors for 10 minutes straight, with Biden basically unable to give his speech

Chinese State Media Hack Cites CATO Institute To Defend Globalist Trade Policies
Politics makes strange bedfellows.
An editor of a Chinese-government controlled media group cited a CATO Institute article to argue against Senator Josh Hawley’s criticisms of the World Trade Organization in a tweet on Tuesday, telling the Missouri Senator to “get educated” on the benefits the globalist trade organization supposedly provides.
Here is response from a real WTO expert. Someone who actually knows about WTO. So get educated. https://t.co/5o4xrXpAWp

Chen Weihua is the EU bureau chief of China Daily, a daily newspaper following in the mold of many Chinese media organizations in being entirely state-owned and affiliated with the Chinese government.
It would nominally comes as a surprise that an operative of the Chinese Communist Party would cite the free-trade libertarian think tank’s rebuttal to Senator Hawley’s argument against the WTO, but politics makes for strange bedfellows. Both the Chinese government’s outsourcing-based economic model and western corporate elites cozy with CATO benefit from a continued regime of low trade barriers and free trade, placing the ideological libertarians and Chinese communists in the same camp on trade policy.
Senator Hawley had put Weihua on blast for propagandizing against the populist-right senator’s call to abolish the World Trade Organization and replace it with an economic nationalist and pro-worker alternative. The WTO has been a critical element in the outsourcing of millions of American jobs and vital national industry to China and other countries where cheap labor is plentiful.
#China not happy about my call to confront their economic imperialism by ending the WTO & replacing it with system that’s good for American workers. I love being insulted by #china state-run press https://t.co/z7Y887ztvf

Staunch America First advocates pushed back against Weihua and CATO’s defense of “free trade” with China, with economic nationalists arguing that the country should never even have been let into the WTO to begin with.
Communist China should have never been allowed into the WTO. China has taken American manufacturing and millions of jobs to China using cheap slave labor – stealing US IP and R&D. China has not been a trade partner to US – they have engaged in one-sided trade practices.
