The media did all it could to spin the POTUS Trump trip to Asia as a negative when in reality it was quite possibly among the most economically productive overseas trips in the history of the presidency which will help to create thousands of jobs here in the United States.
Check out this report via Investor’s Business Daily:
…despite the media snark, the trip was a big success from Trump’s perspective, especially on trade. While Trump was conferring with Chinese President Xi Jinping, U.S. companies announced some $250 billion in deals with China — a clear sign China wants to open its markets even more.
A more recent example was China’s decision, announced on Thanksgiving, to slash import taxes on some 187 consumer goods. As Bloomberg News correctly noted, this move “promises to boost the prospects of multinationals in the Chinese market,” in particular big U.S. consumer multinationals like Procter & Gamble Co. and medicine-maker Pfizer.
The above is what Mr. Trump meant when he called for “fair trade” over “free trade” and is yet another example of him doing exactly what he promised he would do. And as he delivers on improving the decades-long trade imbalance with China POTUS Trump has nearly wiped out ISIS, raised working class wages by 4% in just one year, reduced unemployment, cut thousands of pages of regulations, reduced the size of the federal government, appointed Constitution-minded judges, and is now set to make Congress actually pass some measure of tax cuts/reforms.
By any measure this president is notching up some very impressive victories even as the Establishment Media says otherwise.
