Keep America Great is President Donald Trump choice of slogans and in my view, keep saying it, be patriotic to your country. Being a proud American, or in my case a proud Canadian, or whatever your country of origin, stand proud.
But not a day goes by that we don’t hear President Trump saying that America is tired of being taken advantage of, pointing his finger at everybody and or every country, and the last part of that sentence would be “Keep America great “
He seems to be blaming other countries for what?
That’s where he keeps loosing me.
The NAFTA deal seems to be a thorn in his backside and I personally think he’s upset because he’s not getting his own way.
But that’s outside the box looking in.
Put it in perspective. Buying Canadian steel or aluminum pose a national security threat to Americans and if so HOW? Or, are we taking their jobs away from American steel workers? If that’s the case call a spade a spade, but Canada is far from a security threat to the Americans.
How silly is that, a poorly informed President.
But, is it true; are all their friends and allies taking advantage of the United States of America? Are the Canadians doing cross boarder shopping, putting a dint in their economy? How about these Canadians that spend their winters, spend their pension dollars at a loss of 25%, just for the luxury of the sunny south, (which happens to be in the U S).
Maybe our Canadians should stay home, dress a little warmer and enjoy our seasonal weather. We have everything here, except, ‘that sunny warm weather’, DARN.
Those Canadians should be ashamed.
Canadians should also be ashamed of themselves for spending their hard earned money/dollar at a loss, just to be accused of taking advantage of American hospitality.
Are the rich and famous from around the world going to Las Vegas for a vacation, spending millions of dollars????? Are they taking advantage of the U.S.? I guess so, but only if they win?????
Just a note,
Why do you think the Canadian dollar is so low in the first place? Do you think our government wanted it that way? “It’s just that way for some unknown reason?”
The current President said, these countries that the US has been helping out financially and militarily, is now going to a stop. We’re not being taking advantage of anymore, no sir, not any more, nope, nope.
Lets “Keep America great” … I like it and I’m Canadian
But what if, behind the scenes, the US always gets something in return for their … “Generosity”. Which is a subject that is never talked or written about. What does the US get in return?
I read an article a while back that during WW 2, and, yes the US did help with the war effort, but in return for helping England out, England had to share very sensitive top secret information in return. Now at the time (as the story goes) the US didn’t worry about Germany or the war itself. Most politicians thought there was a lot of water between the war arena and America and who cares what happens over there. But rest assured the US didn’t give arms away free, just because they liked England or cared so much for their allies.
There was a smell of money to be made.
So after the Pearl Harbor attack, they were forced into the conflict and not before and not by choice.
If we’re talking manufacturing jobs, up to date, their jobs were lost due to (I believe greed), more profits to be had abroad. To employ somebody in another country, you just unemployed somebody here. As the story goes, Trumps own companies manufacture products abroad, so why do you think that is?
It makes good business sense. That’s the bottom line, “money”.
His companies are no different than most others and I do understand making profits, make a company healthy and viable for all concerned. Just makes good business sense.
But “Walk the talk” stop blaming all America’s friends and allies for your unemployment problem or whatever you think everybody is doing to America. You be the leader and bring all your manufacturing home.
These counties are not the cause, but they sure will remember.
“Keep America Great” is a good thought, employ your own, keep jobs at home, I get it, that’s what a good Politician/ President does, look after their own people. But I smell another reason?
There is no pointing of fingers. Who did what to whom, but if you had to ask me my opinion, the American government has always taken advantage of or got something in return for their help, “generosity”
But, President Donald Trump says, “America is tired of being taken advantage of? “ Eh!
This is only my opinion and with very little research but only years of observation.
I rest my Case. Eh
