When President Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaNo Hillary — the 'Third Way' is the wrong way Biden should pivot to a pro-growth strategy on immigration reform One year on, a critical role needs to be filled by the administration MORE leaves office, the national debt will be $20 trillion, over 60% of Americans will have less than $1,000 in a savings account, the U.S. will only rank 19th in the world when it comes to median wealth per adult, and over 46 million Americans will be on food stamps.
Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonNo Hillary — the 'Third Way' is the wrong way The dangerous erosion of Democratic Party foundations The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Facebook - Democrats see victory in a voting rights defeat MORE and bureaucrats on the left believe more government intervention and more restraints on the free market will solve the problem. Meanwhile, most of those on the right believe you just cut a few taxes, provide a subsidy here and there, and create a few jobs. Neither are right, luckily we actually have a businessman running for president.
Donald Trump understands the free market better than any other candidate running for President, especially Hillary Clinton.
Trump knows we live amidst economic scarcity. As a successful businessman, not a political hack, Trump knows that it’s production that actually matters, that not all jobs are created equally.
It’s not just about creating jobs or pulling a backroom deal in congress to keep a factory open in your respective congressional district, it’s about removing government from interfering with the free market and using the government to instead create and maintain a regulatory and tax environment in which private job-creators can prosper.
It also means renegotiating our horrible trade deals.
“Free Trade” must be smart trade, it most coincide with a tax system that allows American companies to have a level playing field with China, Japan and Mexico.
Trump’s tax plan will allow manufacturers to compete with other countries, and keep these jobs from going overseas or even out of business. By significantly reducing business taxes and rewarding companies that hire in America, we will transform the U.S. into the job magnet of the world, and we will never be ripped off again.
In Contrast, Hillary’s corporatist trade deals would eviscerate the U.S. middle class.
Trump also challenges the republican establishment notion that we should keep blowing up our deficit launching undeclared wars and protecting oil rich nations for pennies. He’ll use our military as a last resort and tell wealthy countries to pay their fair share, the American taxpayers are no longer their door mat.
Trump has been honest with the American people, the free market isn’t always fair, and as a real estate mogul, he knows that first hand. However, removing the chains from the free market will allow for our country to ensure that everyone who wants to work, has chance to do so.
