The current economic improvements are not a black and white difference between Obama and Trump. Trump has done NOTHING policy-wise yet; he is resting on the policy foundations of the past 8 years of the Obama administration. Nevertheless, his mostly ignorant-of-economics, self-confirmation-biased "true believers" will happily consume the hash of lies and distortions they are fed. Are their incomes going up? Is life easier? All they have to do is make a trip to the mailbox to find out that *nothing* has changed. What's going to surprise most of them is how once Clown Trump and his circus get going, how they are going to be left behind.
We have a *structural* disruption in worldwide benefits to labor; that structural disruption is ACCELERATING. Clown Trump and his base are going to find that out soon enough, as labor becomes ever more the commodity and automation continues to hallow out jobs. Wake up!
Exactly! And, given that Foxcon is committed to nearly 100% automation and relatively low skill in their factories, these jobs will *not* pay that well. They may *appear* to pay well in Western PA, where jobs are wanting, but then China will have leverage against Trump if he tries to screw around with tariffs - China can just say, "we're leaving" and then what. Who is going to "give" - Trump, or China? China is playing Trump like the chimp that he is.
Look, China is planning to lay off MILLIONS of workers in China, to automate. They may put this factory into PA and wait for Trump to be replaced, then they will go FULL automation and WIN! To the Chinese, Trump is below "bush league" (pun, intended).
Read some history about Russian propaganda; Putin is GOOD at this; it's a high-level art in Russia. Don't believe me, Comrade? Here, let this guy deconstruct it for you! http://smallwarsjournal.com/jr...
