President Trump Weekly Address: “Made In America”…

Everything President Trump is presenting within the America-First economic plan is connected.  As President Trump and his economic and national security team confront N-Korea, via China’s enabling, the economic dynamic underlines the framework.

Always remember, each part of the message is connected to each other part of the policy.

.

[Transcript] My fellow Americans, Here at the White House, we are dedicating the month of July to three of our favorite words – MADE IN AMERICA. For more than two centuries, those three beautiful words have been the world standard for quality, craftsmanship and excellence – and they still are today.

As President, one of my highest priorities is to restore American Manufacturing. For decades, American jobs have been ripped out of our communities, industries and towns have been stripped bare, and the entire communities have been uprooted and left. Foreign nations got rich at America’s expense – and many special interests profited from this great global theft of American wealth.

Since taking the oath of office, our government has adopted a new philosophy: AMERICA FIRST – and believe me, it’s about time. The era of economic surrender is over – and a new national pride is sweeping across our land. You see it, I see it, we all see it.

Industry confidence has soared to the highest level ever recorded.

One of my first acts was ordering all federal agencies to enforce two simple rules: Buy American, and Hire American. We want to build with American Workers, and with American Iron, Aluminum and Steel.

We are also tearing down every possible barrier to domestic energy production to unleash the full power of our economy. The American people will finally be allowed to tap into the vast energy wealth sitting right beneath our feet or right below our shores.

We have also sent a clear message to the world that we will not allow other nations to take advantage of us any longer.

That’s why I withdrew from the one-sided Paris Climate Accord – and believe me, it was one-sided. Not a good deal for our country. And the job-killing Trans Pacific Partnership, and that’s why we are pursuing a total renegotiation of NAFTA and if we don’t get it, we will terminate – that is end NAFTA forever.

Every other nation on earth protects its own interests. America is finally going to do the same.

And as we continue to fight for American workers and industry, it won’t be long before we see the Made in America label proudly displayed on thousands of new products all across this great land and exported all around the world.

Thank you, God bless you, God bless America. We are all doing a job, we are working very hard.

It will be America First.

It will be Make America Great Again.

It’s happening.

      President Trump just may be the most underestimated man I have ever seen. He is fearless and refuses to be bullied by anyone including the so-called MSM and Putin. What wonderful things he could accomplish for America if the Left was not fighting him tooth and nail. I understand why they are fighting but I want so much for Trump to succeed that I am dreaming here.

      As an aside, compare President Trump to Senator Chuck Schumer. Are they not as different as two people can be? President Trump is shaping up to be a great president and Schumer is no more than a fly on the arse of an elephant.

        Reagan does not hold a candle to Trump because he did not understand Economics. Therefore he allowed Hostile Takeovers and Leveraged buyouts.
        I wrote this ages ago when I was trying to figure out what happened to the country I love.
        ……….
        In 1970 the % of the workforce employed in manufacturing was 26.4% In 2013, it was about 8.8 % of total U.S. employment at which point the quit keeping track. We have had close ~23% unemployment rate for the last 8 years.

        So what happened?
        Nixon is the President who gave us the EPA by executive order, OSHA, opened the US market to strengthen Mao’s Communist China, and broke the Bretton Woods agreement, closing the gold window since foreign banks had stripped all the ‘good deliverable gold’ from Fort Knox. This lead to massive devaluation of the dollar. Followed by the OPEC cartel hiking the price of oil.
        But it was Reagan’s Administration, the Era of the Hostile Takeover aka Leverage Buyouts that really gutted the core of the USA. — Our Manufacturing.

        First you have to understand what a “Leveraged buyout” IS.
        “…A leveraged buyout (or LBO, or highly-leveraged transaction (HLT), or “bootstrap” transaction) occurs when an investor, typically financial sponsor, acquires a controlling interest in a company’s equity and where a significant percentage of the purchase price is financed through leverage (borrowing). The assets of the acquired company are used as collateral for the borrowed capital, sometimes with assets of the acquiring company. Typically, leveraged buyout uses a combination of various debt instruments from bank and debt capital markets…
        The leveraged buyout boom of the 1980s was conceived by a number of corporate financiers, most notably Jerome Kohlberg, Jr. and later his protégé Henry Kravis. Working for Bear Stearns at the time, Kohlberg and Kravis, along with Kravis’ cousin George Roberts, began a series of what they described as “bootstrap” investments…”
        — WIKI – Leveraged_buyout

        Many of these targeted companies, like the one I worked for, were DEBT FREE. They owned the factories and equipment.

        Notice the PROPERTY used for COLLATERAL of these loans was NOT owned by the Corporate Raiders! THIS is nothing more than THEFT and FRAUD! It would be like me looking at the 500 acres owned free and clear by a couple of retirees and I go to the bank and get a mortgage using that land as collateral. Actually since the bank prints the money on the spot and US citizens eventually pay for it via currency devaluation (Lower wages/higher prices) WE are now the moral and ethical owners.

        So where the heck was CONGRESS. Where the heck were the COURTS when these raiders were confiscating our national wealth, our manufacturing base???
        “…Both economic and regulatory factors combined to spur the explosion in large takeovers and, in turn, large LBOs. The three regulatory factors were the Reagan administration’s relatively laissez-faire policies on antitrust and securities laws, which allowed mergers the government would have challenged in earlier years; the 1982 Supreme Court decision striking down state antitakeover laws (which were resurrected with great effectiveness in the late eighties); and deregulation of many industries, which prompted restructurings and mergers. The main economic factor was the development of the original-issue high-yield debt instrument. The so-called “junk bond” innovation, pioneered by Michael Milken of Drexel Burnham, provided many hostile bidders and LBO firms with the enormous amounts of capital needed to finance multi-billion-dollar deals….” http://www.econlib.org/library/Enc1/TakeoversandLeveragedBuyouts.html

        So what did the US government do about this highly unethical practices???
        ..In January 1982, former US Secretary of the Treasury William Simon and a group of investors acquired Gibson Greetings, a producer of greeting cards, for $80 million, of which only $1 million was rumored to have been contributed by the investors. By mid-1983, just sixteen months after the original deal, Gibson completed a $290 million IPO and Simon made approximately $66 million.[9] The success of the Gibson Greetings investment attracted the attention of the wider media to the nascent boom in leveraged buyouts.[10] Between 1979 and 1989, it was estimated that there were over 2,000 leveraged buyouts valued in excess of $250 billion…..— WIKI – Leveraged_buyout
        So a US Secretary of the Treasury started the sellout of our economy. Reagan through his laissez faire attitude did nothing to stop it.

        This is a sampling of the industries with over 50% foreign ownership, according to Source Watch http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Foreign_ownership_of_U.S._corporations

        Color me unimpressed by Ronald Reagan.

    Whilst reading President Trump’s address, the song and lyrics “Delivering the Goods” by Judas Priest popped into my head…

    Feeling like we’re, ready to kick tonight
    No hesitating, my bodies aching
    Looking for some action, satisfaction all right
    Charging, vein faced, as active as one-hundred solid proof
    Megaton, Leviathan, we’re ready to hit the roof

    You better watch out and hold on tight
    We’re heading your way like dynamite
    Uh, Delivering the goods
    Uh, Delivering the goods

    Shake down, rock ’em boys, crack that whip strap mean
    Pulse rate, air waves, battle lies in every place we’ve been
    Stealing your hearts all across the land
    Hot blood doing good, we’re going to load you with our brand
    You better watch out and hold on tight
    We’re heading your way like dynamite

    Uh, Delivering the goods
    Yeah, Delivering the goods

    Have it your way
    Stealing your hearts

    Well we don’t pull no punches, we aim where the crunch is
    Bound to do most damage to your brain
    If you’re looking for it mellow
    you’re nothing more than yellow
    Gonna do it again and again
    We’ll beat you to submission
    So you might as well surrender
    You gotta learn your lesson
    ‘Cause there ain’t nobody here to defend ya

    Faster, higher
    ‘Til it seems that we’re gonna break
    Oh shootin’ further, giving more than you’re ever gonna take
    Leaving your heads
    Crushed out on the floor
    Begging for mercy
    Be careful or we’ll do it some more
    You better watch out and hold on tight
    We’re heading your way like dynamite

    Uh, Delivering the goods

    We’ve used “Made by American Craftsmen in the USA.” for over 25 years. 5 years ago we changed it to, ” Made in the USA, with 100% USA components.”. Our competitors use, “Made in America out of Global components.”. Which one would you buy? BTW, sales since November have been insane.

      Yes!

      I want to see “Made in USA by US citizens with 100% USA components ” on every product!

      I fear that “Made in America” might shiftily include other nations in North America and South America, the continents. Made in America might thus include lots of non-USA nations.

      So “Made in USA” is what I want to see.

      For some products it will take time: certain factories need building first (old ones were torn down), certain agricultural products need deregulation first (like for one example, cotton for clothing), certain US natural resources must be harvestable again.

      For a while we will have to settle for Made in USA of imported products until USA is making our own/harvesting our own again.

      And even then, according to trade deals for imports we will accept under “America First fair trade” …
      We might need include some imported products and materials too. For if we are going to have trade agreements at all, we have to be willing to actually use what we import.

      It is America first fair trade, not America only no trade. Although I would prefer the latter for anything that is a true necessity!

        Small item. Inconsequential to most people, but trying to find feminine liners that are absolutely made in America is near impossible. I’ve been trying to find them all week. Even if some brands are made in America, they don’t have the words on the packaging so no one knows where they are made and assume they are made in the U.S.A. They shouldn’t. From what I’m learning, most are not.

        Sorry for ranting about personal products, but I cannot understand how anyone would trust such a product that isn’t made in America. .

        Agree. While many are saying vote them out when speaking of our present rino’s no one is asking how do we do that. Grassroots efforts like those of the tea party (still going) must find qualified conservative Republican candidates to replace the traitors. I like you will never vote for a commie/democrat. This is the scam that’s been run on us for decades. If your unhappy with what Republicans are doing vote them out (vote democrat). We must stop this ridiculous cycle. Obamacare was the result the last time this happened.

          I work on my current rep who is a Ryan syncophant but in NC. Rep. Richard Hudson.
          I wrote him last and told him that NC voted for Trump. And that NC had not voted for Ryan, and that my town was not named Janesville. And that he had best stop with all the Ryan-promotion because most voters who love Trump hate Ryan.

          It apparently isn’t sinking in, as I got a new (automated) email from Hudson with all the wonders Ryan is doing lately…but since Hudson is not up for re-election in 2018, I will keep trying to get Hudson to recognize the problem for a little while longer, and change his ways and his tune.

    Ever since the EPA was unleashed on American manufacturers the Made in America products have deteriorated or become non-existent. The manufacturers had to compete on a non level playing field and it showed with the corners they cut. We have been at war with the left economically since World War 2. They knew they couldn’t defeat us on a battlefield and instead they have been destroying us economically and through lawfare.

    I was putting my tools away yesterday and happened to look at a 12″ adjustable wrench I found while working on the Interstate. It proudly says “Made in USA” by the Diamond Tool and Horseshoe Company. I have had it for 50 years and who knows how long the previous owner had it before he lost it out of his truck. That tool works great and is a testament to the skill and pride that American workers once had before being pushed out of the market by their own government.

    Thank God for President Trump!

      Excellent 👍

      I’m trying to find the proper term that, to me, reflects the “renewal” of American spirit.

      Rebirth has been overplayed
      Renewal has been overplayed
      Renaissance has been overplayed
      Recovery has been overplayed

      Thus, I feel that Mr. President is leading this beautiful country toward a restoration.

      Yes, that’s the word – restoration.

      A restoration of pride in America
      A restoration of patriotism in America
      A restoration of faith in America
      A restoration of hope in America
      A restoration of strength in America
      A restoration of dignity in America
      A restoration of gratitude in America
      A restoration of law and order in America
