Less regulations? WTF Donnie?

Twit has tweeted this. I wonder if this means he'll pay more for steel he imports from China, or if it's just for us not smart peeps:


The U.S. is going to substantialy reduce taxes and regulations on businesses, but any business that leaves our country for another country,

fires its employees, builds a new factory or plant in the other country, and then thinks it will sell its product back into the U.S. ......

without retribution or consequence, is WRONG! There will be a tax on our soon to be strong border of 35% for these companies ......

wanting to sell their product, cars, A.C. units etc., back across the border. This tax will make leaving financially difficult, but.....

expensive mistake! THE UNITED STATES IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS

1. I suspect the tax and regulatory cuts for businesses is just a wink and nod to his buds.

Putting the burden for keeping businesses/jobs in the US on the workers willingness to accept pay cuts, benefit reductions, less safe working environments and increased personal taxes has long been the Republican model for the working class. Trump appears to be positioning himself to make this dream come true on a national level.

Watch, his supporters will defend this as "making America great again" and and tear into anyone trying to point out how we working people are being screwed yet again.

2. These guys just don't care

You can rub their noses in things like the Triangle fire as proof that business desperately needs to be regulated and they'll shrug it off as "that guy had bad luck." To them, dead workers are just a by product of doing business, nothing to see here, look at my balance sheet.

That's why there needs to be a wall between business and government, as well as between church and state.
