First, some wonderful news:
Trump Abandons Trans-Pacific Partnership, Obama’s Signature Trade Deal – New York Times (Fake news source)
We’re actually getting a President who is doing what he promised to do. The TPP was a terrible trade pact for Americans. So terrible that the unions applauded its demise:
If Mr. Trump scrambled coalitions overseas, he did so at home, too. Democrats and labor groups praised his move. James P. Hoffa, general president of the Teamsters union, said Mr. Trump had “taken the first step toward fixing 30 years of bad trade policies.” Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, said it would “bury the moldering corpse” of the Pacific deal, though she expressed concern about how Nafta would be renegotiated.
And even Comrade Sanders gave his grudging approval with a backhanded swipe at the end worthy of an old communist:
“I am glad the Trans-Pacific Partnership is dead and gone,” Sanders said. “For the last 30 years, we have had a series of trade deals — including the North American Free Trade Agreement, permanent normal trade relations with China and others — which have cost us millions of decent-paying jobs and caused a ‘race to the bottom’ which has lowered wages for American workers. Now is the time to develop a new trade policy that helps working families, not just multinational corporations. If President Trump is serious about a new policy to help American workers, then I would be delighted to work with him.”
Based on the logic that’s been used by Liberals for the past few months, I can only assume that this mild approval from Sanders means that he’s a fascist collaborator. Right?
