It can be hard to get any real news about the Trump agenda out of Washington and the dishonest fake news media given the media’s increasingly delusional obsession with Russia and alleged yet to be proven collusion.
Thankfully you don’t have to get all your information from the fake news media any longer.
Yesterday President Trump, Vice President Pence, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, and Speaker Paul Ryan were all at the Whitehouse to announce a major investment decision in what can only described as the Trump agenda coming home.
Taiwanese electronics manufacturing company Foxconn, announced they would invest $10B in Southeast Wisconsin to expand their manufacturing with a brand new facility, initially leading to 3,000 new jobs, or much higher according to President Trump.
This is vintage Trump and exactly what his agenda is all about. It’s the kind of thing he talked about for years leading up to his run and throughout the entire campaign.
Bringing back electronics manufacturing is no small feat. I can’t remember the last electronics company that made anything outside of Asia, and Foxconn isn’t an obscure company. With revenues in excess of $135B and assets over $70B, they produce the electronics we all use everyday.
It’s likely Foxconn wouldn’t have made this investment decision if Donald Trump wasn’t a President whose administration is making serious efforts at tax reform and major tax cuts for corporations.
Contrast Governor Walker and President Trump’s successful pursuit of billions of investment dollars to Canadian Premiers Rachel Notley, John Horgan and our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and their abject failure to lure any new investment.
If anything, their policies have chased billions and billions of dollars out of our country!
In Alberta we’ve seen the exodus of Shell and Conocophillips, and now this week Petronas pulled the plug on between $11-36B dollars in BC’s north for what could have been a massive LNG industry.
The policies of the left hurt the economy of Canada, and this is only being exacerbated by the pro-industry, pro-business policies of the Trump administration as we’ve now been witnessing for six months.
Yet, not one member of Canada’s federal government, not one NDP MLA in BC or Alberta will acknowledge that this country is in big trouble if we don’t change our tune to compete with the U.S..
They’re blind and full of anti-Trump and anti-American sentiment to actually think there is some good that could come to this country with the Trump administration opening up the flow of manufacturing and energy investment back into the U.S..
Believe me, if we had the will, Canada could be hand in hand with the U.S. in bringing jobs back and lowering taxes. But our virtue signalling Liberal and New Democrat politicians are just too busy being partisan ideologues to notice.
