Trump First: Trump’s Economic Policies Help Him, Hurt Us

Aug 08, 2016

In his speech this afternoon on trade and the economy, Donald Trump will certainly bemoan outsourcing that shifts “our jobs, our wealth and our factories to Mexico and overseas.”

The hypocrisy is palpable.

Trump has outsourced much of his Trump-branded clothing and other products to countries like Mexico, China, and Bangladesh. Currently, Trump is seeking more guest workers for his his resorts; jobs that American workers are eager to do. 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. Trump is so unstable he can’t see–or refuses to recognize–that he’s engaging in the same acts he decries.

It’s baffling and dangerous hypocrisy from Trump. 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 with a maniacal drive to enrich himself and pad his own pockets.

Trump’s economic philosophy is simple: Trump First.


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