Donald Trump Unveils Plan for ‘Pro-American’ Trade Policy Aimed at Independence from China

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Democrats and RINOS are dragging their feet on the topic of confronting the Communist Party that has done so much damage worldwide to free people, and who has gotten their grip firmly around the throat of the United States of America, with the American President and his administration securely in their camp.

Donald J. Trump, on the other hand, is not a fan of the CCP.

Trump proved his steadfast plan to release Americans from the CCP in a video, where he calls for the United States to decouple from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)  with what he described as a “sweeping pro-American overhaul of our tax and trade policy”.

Trump’s announcement comes at the perfect time as Fox News reported that there is a hearing on the dangers of the CCP to the United States, Tuesday night.

“The new House China Select Committee is holding its first hearing Tuesday night, featuring testimony from former national security officials and others who can deliver a “concrete assessment” of the threat the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) poses to the United States.

Committee Chairman Mike Gallagher, R-Wis., invited former Deputy National Security Advisor Matthew Pottinger; former National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster; Chinese human rights advocate Tong Yi; and president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing Scott Paul to testify.”

The hearing, titled “The Chinese Communist Party’s Threat to America” is set to begin at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday. The committee was created for the 118th Congress by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and was established with broad bipartisan support.

Trump and the supporters of his plan want to massively increase American manufacturing which would end our nation’s economic dependence on China.

In Trump style, he had a brilliant video campaign that spelled out the points he wanted to drive home, starting with the point that Democrat POTUS Joe Biden is a disaster and on the topic of the CCP, Biden is compromised and dangerous to the Republic.

Trump pointed out that while Biden talks about being pro-American manufacturing, he is “pushing the same pro-China globalist agenda that ripped the industrial heart out of our country.”

Trump’s America First agenda is has always been full of pro-American manufacturing plans, and Biden even dared lift some of Trump’s talking points when discussing the matter at his second State of the Union address a few weeks ago.

No wonder Trump was a bit heated up. We know that Biden can copy what Trump says, but he ca not copy what Trump does. For that, we need Trump back in the White House.

Here is Trump’s plan again with what he is calling ‘Agenda 47’ for the 47th president:

“THIS is the way! #Agenda47:

takes a SLEDGEHAMMER to Globalism with America First trade platform for 2nd term. Universal Tariffs  Total Independence From China  Patriotic Protectionism  Reviving Mercantilism for the 21st Century


Breitbart news covered Trump’s plan, reporting:

“Trump shared his vision “to move from the Biden system that punishes domestic producers and rewards outsourcers to a system that rewards domestic production and taxes foreign companies and those who export American jobs.”

“To achieve this goal, we will phase in a system of universal base-line tariffs on most foreign products. On top of this, higher tariffs will increase incrementally depending on how much individual foreign countries devalue their currency,” Trump said.

He added taxes on American producers will reduce as the new tariff system is employed, enabling domestic employers to hire more workers:

As tariffs on foreign producers go up, taxes on American producers will go down and go down very substantially, and that means a lot of jobs coming in. Not only will this system end our gaping trade deficits – and they are massive right now – and bring back millions of American jobs, it will also bring trillions and trillions of dollars pouring into the United States Treasury from foreign countries and allow us to invest that money in American workers, American families, and American communities.

This plan will be the linchpin of a new strategic manufacturing initiative that builds on my historical success in ending NAFTA [North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement].

Trump then focused exclusively on China, putting forth a series of policy plans, including phasing out all key imports, to “completely eliminate dependence on China in all critical areas.”

Trump, in the video, explained his plan:

We will revoke China’s most-favored-nation trade status and adopt a four-year plan to phase out all Chinese imports of essential goods, everything from electronics to steel to pharmaceuticals. This will include strong protections to ensure China cannot circumvent restrictions by passing goods through conduit countries – countries that don’t make a product, but all of the sudden they’re selling a lot of product. It comes right through China, right out China, and right into our country.

We will also adopt new rules to stop U.S. companies from pouring investments into China and to stop China from buying up America… And we will eliminate federal contracts to any company that outsources to China.

The 45th president asserted that Biden “will never get the job done” and that “[h]e is weak on China because the corrupt Biden family has received millions and millions of dollars from entities tied to the Chinese Communist Party.”
