Trump First: Trump Hypocritically Invests In Companies That Outsource

Jun 28, 2016

In his speech this afternoon on “Declaring America’s Economic Independence,” Donald Trump’s set to complain about outsourcing that shifts “our jobs, our wealth and our factories to Mexico and overseas.”

The hypocrisy is palpable.

On top of outsourcing much of his Trump-branded clothing and other products to countries like Mexico, China, and Bangladesh, Trump for weeks attacked Nabisco, Ford, Carrier, and other U.S.-based companies for outsourcing manufacturing. Then we learned what Trump was hiding: Trump was investing in and profiting off those same outsourcing firms, even as he criticized them for shipping jobs to Mexico.

It’s baffling hypocrisy from Trump, but not surprising. From running his Trump University racket to not paying his bills, Donald Trump’s built his wealth on the backs of working people — exploiting seniors, veterans, and small business owners to enrich himself and pad his own pockets.

Trump’s economic philosophy is simple: Trump First.

Donald Trump is 70-years-old and he’s made a career of prioritizing his profit margins above all else, leaving hardworking Americans of all stripes behind.

All Donald Trump’s ever wanted is to Make Trump Rich Again. Why would he change now?
