#NeverTrumpers are Kamikaze Pilots in Hillary Clinton's Airforce

Jonah Goldburg is in the #NeverTrump camp, and as usual grossly overstates Trumps trade policy. What a surprise. As all the #NeverTrumpers say they can't be persuaded to vote for DJT, then whats the point listening to their whining? Its a waste of time.

We cannot enforce trade agreements if we are unwilling to unleash sanctions against countries that dump products tax free into our markets, or manipulate their currency making our exports unaffordable in their markets, or blocking entirely our ability to export products to their markets, or even when they are brazenly stealing intellectual property and violating patents.

Ronald Reagan liked free trade, yes. But he also stopped Japan from dumping semiconductors into the US, and made agreements with them to voluntarily reduce import of cars. He did this to save American industries and jobs, which are key to national security. The economy did just fine.

The Red Chinese are rebuilding their blue water Navy largely on profits from huge trade deficits. We are talking about advanced precision weapons, fighters, and nuclear subs that can target our cities. The promise of free trade was to increase our manufacturing base, not destroy it. Americans are going to have to decide whether national security is more important than buying super cheap flat screen TVs from Communist competitors.

Secondly, Trump will reduce regulations and corporate taxes making it more feasible to operate in this country again. These #NeverTrumpers are not going to get away with their gross exaggerations and lies.
