My Trump Challenge

Let me start out by saying that I voted for Ross Perot in 1992, based solely on the trade issue. I knew then that these trade deals would be the death knell for the jobs of many of my union brothers and sisters who depended on manufacturing for a good, middle class living.

Trump has now tapped into that disaffection with that large group of union and former union workers.

But where was he when it mattered? I have challenged any of my union brethren to find one quote, one single public statement from Donald Trump against NAFTA or any other trade deal prior to his announcing for President.

He took advantage of the same low wage loopholes that many others did. You know the story, ties from China, picture frames from India, suits from Mexico. If he believed in his heart that these deals were wrong, the time to speak up was when they were being decided and the time to show your support was when you actually did the manufacturing (or lent your name to the products).

His opposition, now, to the trade deals are nothing more than a con job in an effort to game the political system.

Anyone who falls for his line of shit is a fool, or needs an excuse to vote for a bigot.

The guy is a phony from head to toe. He is using marketing techniques the same way a late night infomercial pitchman sells a Shamwow!

In fact, we should just call him "Shamwow!"
