The US presidential candidate Donald Trump claimed that the Americans are living through the “greatest job theft” in the History of the World. He said US companies are moving out jobs to countries like India, China, Mexico, and Singapore.
He said while addressing his supporters in Florida, “America has lost 70,000 factories since China entered the World Trade Organisation, another Bill and Hillary backed disaster. We are living through the greatest jobs theft in the history of the world. There’s never been a country that’s lost jobs like we do, so stupidly, so easy to solve”. He added, “Goodrich Lighting Systems laid off 255 workers and moved their jobs to India. Baxter Health Care Corporation laid off 199 workers and moved their jobs to Singapore. Essilor Laboratories laid off 181 workers and moved their jobs, surprise, to Mexico. It’s getting worse and worse and worse”.
He further claimed, “I want the entire corrupt Washington establishment to hear the words we are about to say. When we win on November 8th, we are going to drain the swamp. Going to do it.”
Donald Trump said, it is his place to bring back jobs that have been stolen; stolen either by very stupid or corrupt politicians.
He said, “Florida has lost one in four of its manufacturing jobs since the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), a deal signed by Bill Clinton and supported by Hillary”.
He further claimed that the theft of American prosperity will end quickly and effectively, saying, “if a company wants to fire their workers, leave Florida, move to another country, and then shift their product back into the United States, we will make them pay a tax of 35 percent. They’re never going to leave this country. They’re never leaving. He knows. They’re never going to leave this country. A Trump administration will renegotiate NAFTA. If we don’t get the deal we want, we will terminate NAFTA and get a much better deal for our workers”.
