Tom Donohue and U.S. CoC Beg White House: Please Don’t Stop Buying From China, We’ll Lose Our Manufacturing Investments….

You knew it was going to happen… The U.S. Chamber of Commerce (President Tom Donohue) begins having apoplectic fits at the thought of even stronger Trump administration policies that might undercut their Chinese manufacturing investments.

The U.S. CoC is the biggest stakeholder of U.S. multinational companies doing business in China.  The Trump administration has been warning them for years to put America First in their business plans; and now with the Chinese Pandemic showing just how dangerous it is for critical manufacturing to be made in the U.S.A, chamber President Tom Donohue is pleading to keep the U.S. dependent on China.

Keep in mind, this is the EXACT SAME group who said the steel and aluminum tariffs were going to cause massive inflation driving up the price of all consumer goods and cars by thousands of dollars… It never happened; because the CoC are manipulative liars.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – White House plans to expand “Buy America” mandates to the medical equipment and pharmaceutical sectors could worsen shortages of urgently needed medicines and delay discovery of a vaccine for the new coronavirus, over 80 business groups warned.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and dozens of other business and trade groups urged U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow and other top U.S. officials to drop plans for the order, arguing it would also damage U.S. trading relationship for years to come.

“Preventing federal agencies from sourcing medical equipment and pharmaceutical ingredients from abroad … would only exacerbate the supply shortages racking the United States,” said a letter from the groups, which was also addressed to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, a long-time trade hawk who is crafting the order, told Fox News late on Wednesday evening that he expected movement on the issue shortly. (read more)

Our battle against the U.S. Chamber of Crony Commerce has been ongoing for many years.  When Donald Trump came down the escalator, our initial support was based on the possibility President Trump would crush the influence of the CoC and all its minions.

Donohue is the disgusting bile, the residue, that remains after the pus is drained from the swamp.  Donohue is the pusher of a Wall Street toxic infection that damn near destroyed the economy of the United States.

The CoC were the primary architects of Clinton, Bush and Obama trade agreements including the insufferable TPP.   All three previous administrations sub-contracted the writing of trade agreements to Donohue and his corrupt Wall Street corporate cronies.

The CoC is by far the largest lobbying group in Washington DC and they spend tens of millions trying to retain their Chinese investments.  This group will never see quarter from us….

    US Chamber of Commerce should not be allowed to put “U.S.” in front of their name as they care nothing about the U.S.A. or its people but only the profits of its multi-national corporation donors. US CoC has done wonders for CCP’s economy while they seem to care less how many Americans lose jobs because of their actions.

        You can’t get upset with a child who cries and screams that they want to continue watching tv, when they’ve been allowed to watch tv 24/7, and all of a sudden you get rid of the tv, right?

        The CoC is only doing what has been successful in the past. I don’t blame them. They are a business. And the business of business is money. They want to make money and have influence.

        I am MAD, UPSET, PISSED OFF that the politicians WE elected, who promised US what they would do for US, instead outsourced the writing of trade laws to those who have a different self-interest.

        It is not the duty of the CoC to be pro-America. It is their duty to be pro-business, and when the politicians abdicate their sworn duty to American citizens by outsourcing the writing of trade laws to a trade group made up of businesses intent on making money on the world stage, then this was bound to happen.

        But it’s not the CoC’s fault. It’s the entrenched political system with gerrymandering and no term limits that is the real problem, in my opinion.

    We should definitely bring back pharmaceutical, medical device and supply manufacturing, but it will take a staged process, until domestic operations can come online and meet cGMP standards, after which protective tariffs, like steel and aluminum, should go in to protect this essential domestic industry.

    America First is actually a full reversal from the establishment policies we have blindly followed for thirty years. Economics itself will need to be reinvented around national objectives: balance employment, wages, taxes, imports and exports to drive broad-based prosperity for one’s country.

    “This group will never see quarter from us….” Beautiful, They are no different than the communist in China. They want China to rule the US businesses. Anybody associated with the Communism of Commerce should never see quarter from us. USCOC needs to be destroyed. Any SOB who can defend China at this point is not an American as far as I am concerned. Donahue is much more of a threat to the US than Flynn ever even thought about being. Donahue should be charged with FARA violations, i.e., aiding and abetting enemies of the U.S.

  12. Let me start out with this statement. Greed is not good or bad, it depends on how it is used.

    Good greed is a motivator to produce something society wants or needs, without using outside forces to make it happen. Good greed does not need the government to impose rules to give them the upper hand.

    Bad greed destroys healthy competition and a healthy society. Bad greed squeezes the life out of the society in the long-run.

    Another way to look at things, it is the difference of a Win-Win mentality and a Win-Lose mentality. Good greed looks to make things Win-Win. Whereas, bad greed is a Win-Lose mentality.

    From another aspect, these “businesses” have failed to follow the axiom of “Do not put all your eggs in one basket.”

    With the above in mind, the CoC is falling on the wrong side of things. They are motivated by Win-Lose. Moreover, they seem to have put all their eggs in one basket.

    This guy can’t be serious. We all just witnessed the CCP threaten, literally threaten, to cut off pharmaceutical & medical supplies to the US alerting us all to the dangerous position we were in, how beholden we are to the CCP. That can’t stand and the American people know it. We never should have allowed it to get to this point and we demand something be done about it, now! It’s us, the American people demanding it, POTUS is just acting on our behalf.
