Wall Street Multinationals Exploit Coronavirus Pandemic To Demand Tariff Removal…

Wall Street’s U.S. multinationals moved the majority of U.S. apparel manufacturing to southeast Asia for the past several decades; as a result they virtually wiped out major apparel hubs in the United States.  Now those same multinationals are claiming their production shift to making masks and PPE in China means the tariffs on imports should be lifted; and they are sending their corporate lobbyists into DC to pitch that message.

Nonsense.

There are no tariffs on U.S. healthcare products made in the USA.  If the apparel industry wants to avoid tariffs, then bring the manufacturing back home.  Critical manufacturing in the United States is what U.S. consumers of those and other goods want.

President Trump should not lower tariffs on imported PPE, he should actually raise those tariffs as high as needed to shift that manufacturing back to the U.S.

The time is now to wage battle against the Wall Street manufacturers & K-St lobbyists.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Trump administration is “turbocharging” an initiative to remove global industrial supply chains from China as it weighs new tariffs to punish Beijing for its handling of the coronavirus outbreak, according to officials familiar with U.S. planning.

[…] “We’ve been working on [reducing the reliance of our supply chains in China] over the last few years but we are now turbo-charging that initiative,” Keith Krach, undersecretary for Economic Growth, Energy and the Environment at the U.S. State Department told Reuters.

“I think it is essential to understand where the critical areas are and where critical bottlenecks exist,” Krach said, adding that the matter was key to U.S. security and one the government could announce new action on soon.

The U.S. Commerce Department, State and other agencies are looking for ways to push companies to move both sourcing and manufacturing out of China. Tax incentives and potential re-shoring subsidies are among measures being considered to spur changes, the current and former officials told Reuters.

“There is a whole of government push on this,” said one. Agencies are probing which manufacturing should be deemed “essential” and how to produce these goods outside of China.

[…]  “This moment is a perfect storm; the pandemic has crystallized all the worries that people have had about doing business with China,” said another senior U.S. official.

“All the money that people think they made by making deals with China before, now they’ve been eclipsed many fold by the economic damage” from the coronavirus, the official said.  (read more)

This is not only good policy, it’s good politics.  The vast majority of Americans now realize how important it is for critical manufacturing to return to the United States.

Considering the position of the new USMCA trade agreement, this is the perfect moment to put additional punitive pressure on China, increase tariffs on imported goods, and support an entire government approach to incentivize a resurgence in American manufacturing independence.

    Overwhelming Majority Say Time To ‘Decouple’ From China

    If there is one thing to come out of this pandemic, it is the fact that Americans believe the U.S. relationship with China has to change. Support for this runs across party lines and education levels.

    The golden days of China as the go-to manufacturing hub for American companies is becoming a bygone era. At leasts that is what more than 70% of survey respondents say they want in a world post-pandemic.

        I doubt it. They knew it would have essentially had the same effect as a bad flu and knew there would be casualties. So people would die but an insignificant amount. And yes I would agree, the amount lost would probably actually be a benefit as it is nowhere near what would be needed to cause any irreparable harm to their country. Regardless, their citizens are expected to die for the emperor if/when needed for what their central communist think tank believes is for the greater good. (CCP Supremacy)

        This was designed to cause a reset in the global order of wealth distribution. Where Trumps America First economic policies where literally suffocating the CCP parasites. With no end in sight.

        The biggest mistake Trump made dealing with this situation in my opinion, was going along with the emphasis placed on testing more then anything else. The experts were obsessed with testing. Not with prevention (because its just the flu). At least initially that was blatantly clear with the non emphasis on masks etc…The masks became a thing afterwards to create more fear and lockdown justifications etc..
        Its obvious to me that shady regimes such as the CCP China decided to manipulate the test results or simply stop testing all together. Meanwhile USA was/is diligently sparing no expense to ensure every case of this new flu virus was documented. Thats the reason why it appears we have so many confirmed cases. Its part of the plan to in some way make Trump look bad. We didnt test anybody like this before. Not during the H1N1 Swine Flue either.

          For many items, yes.there is a lot we Americans can do.

          And if we just guard our effing intellectual property, we should literally be able to leave China in the dust bin of outdated manufacturing.

    Tell Congress to let their globalist friends know that the tea leaves say Congress is going to have learn to run USA’s business via tariffs, because Americans are done with them stealing everything we have and calling it taxation. We’re through with being robbed by a gang of slobs who try to convince us they are our betters.

    Trump should ban all shipments of medical equipment from China, those that are allowed in must pass a test at the expense of the Chinese company.

    President Trump is our General George S. Patton, Jr., but he is waging political and economic warfare on our enemies (foreign and domestic). His attitude is the same. “We’re going to hold him by his balls and we’re going to kick him in the ass; twist his balls and kick the living shit out of him all the time.” He has the people behind him. Now we need to get the Congress Critters in line. The United States will be unstoppable.

    This kind of stuff just makes me laugh. It’s like they haven’t been paying attention for the last few years. The repatriation of American industry is going to happen. Now we just need to re-elect Pres. Trump to see it through.

    China has been sucking the life out of us for years by
    counterfeiting our best selling products in everything
    possible.

    They sold poisoned dog food, killing thousands of dogs
    here in the US. a while back.

    They sent BABY FORMULA made with powdered melmac ( used for
    making plastic dishes.) Who was punished for that?

    They sent 250 lbs. of OXYCOTIN (sp) made from ground
    up plaster board.

    They sent a dump truck load of counterfeit
    ROLEX AND OTHER WATCHES. That must have
    been about 30 years ago. Luckily….
    Port Authorities found them and drove over
    them with a road grader….smashed them all…flat.

    There have been so many I can’t remember them all !!

    “White House balks as models show frightening acceleration of future coronavirus deaths”
    What models? Are they talking about Democrat models, democrat doctors models? Democrat doctors are lying pieces of donkey dung just like any democrat. Doctors are almost worst than politicians when it comes to lying!

    HOAX
