2. Okay, all well and good

Companies have found a means to benefit themselves by establishing production in country, but how does that help our country or our workers?

3. How does that help? They aren't bringing the $ back to the US

Those dollars, if you can call them that, are not coming back to the US and helping US workers and consumers. They're great for the corporate financials and corporate officer compensation.

4. So Trump's great idea...

to balance this out a little? Cut corporate tax rates, of course! The companies that moved their production facilities to China and third world countries all over the globe took those jobs away from Americans, and Trump rewards them for it!

Of course the MAGA-mooks still think Trump is going to bring those jobs back to the U.S. He isn't, but as long as Trump hates black and brown people they'll stick with him because he reflects their "values".

With his asinine tariffs and ridiculous tax cuts for corporations who are giving the U.S. the finger, it seems to me that Trump is doing the exact opposite of what should be done to help Americans. But I have to keep telling myself that Trump is a "stable genius" and is the greatest negotiator in the world.
