President Trump mocked conservative mega-donor Charles Koch early Thursday for complaining that tariffs hurt foreign workers, telling the billionaire he is “correct.”

“Charles Koch of Koch Brothers, who claims to be giving away millions of dollars to politicians even though I know very few who have seen this (?), now makes the ridiculous statement that what President Trump is doing is unfair to ‘foreign workers.’ He is correct, AMERICA FIRST!” Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

55,000 of the 120,000 workers in the Koch enterprise are overseas.

Dear Mr. Koch, please cite for me any other country on the face of the earth that treats foreigners fair compared to their own nation’s employees? And I’m not talking about nationalized, forced labor of the likes utilized in totalitarian regimes.

It’s kinda comical that we’ve reached the point in our culture that stating a basic truth makes someone somehow “wise”. But it takes someone like trump to finally bring it out on the table in front of God and everybody.

I hope there is a LOT more to come.

Meanwhile Congress has been busy passing the “Tariff Relief Act” which undermines what Trump is doing.

Fairness is not a satisfactory basis for managing international trade.

The Chinese simply have lower costs than the US. Our landlords and drug companies will not cut rents & prices in half even if Trump begs them to.

Substantial and sustainable fiscal balance must be the primary basis for managing international trade.

We are in Greek territory when it comes to national debt.

We can not continue to run large trade deficits financed by large budget deficits.

“In 2016, the total U.S. trade deficit was $502 billion.”

“CBO estimates that that the federal budget deficit in 2016 will be $544 billion.”

When the press saw Jefferson's quote AKA your tagline they read 'important' in place of "impotent"

I like the "growth" approach, better.

Keeps the theoreticians out of your hair.

To "establishment" Republican "conservatives," the Kochs brothers' Bill of Rights Institute is purported to be a great resource for defenders of the Constitution and its principles. Yet, the brothers' current posturing seems more in line with Progressive rationalizing of the Constitution's meaning and import--leaving one to wonder just how any true defender of the Constitution could take pride in supporting the current Democrat Party, with its total commitment to Progressive ideology's totalitarian demands (Note: there's nothing "democratic" about that Party either.).
