Dude, it's not protectionism. It's a THREAT to GM to prevent them from closing any more American factories and outsourcing jobs to Mexico. Please read, "The Art of the Deal," by Trump.
Yes, I agree, reducing taxes will improve the economy. Here is a video of Clinton saying that she wants to RAISE TAXES ON THE MIDDLE CLASS: https://youtu.be/eTnN13AaMbQ?t=40s

Yup. I would've been more than happy to vote for Sanders over Trump because Sanders is pro 2nd-A (as much as a liberal can be) and he is not a misogynist nor a possible racist. However, the media has been very unfair to Trump. I reviewed his supposed comment saying Mexicans are racists and it is not true but taken out of context: https://youtu.be/uo-7ISmwAi0?t=1m14s
. He pointed out to his Mexican audience that he does not mean "you" and "you" when saying that "some" (not all) Mexicans that Mexico
sends us (not the ones that run across the border of their own accord. The Government of Mexico sends these people to us) are rapists and criminals. He might be a misogynist or it could be just a bit of locker room machismo.
However, Sanders is NOT on the ballot but Trump is.
I dislike Trump. I think he has verbal diarrhoea. However, I will vote for him. Why? For the first time in modern history, we have a candidate who is PRO AMERICAN AND POPULIST. He told GM that he'd raise a 35% tax on GM cars built in Mexico if they shut down any more American factories. NO POLITICIAN REPUBLICAN NOR DEMOCRAT HAS EVER DARED SAY THIS.
A vote for Trump is a vote for America the beautiful. A vote for Hillary is a vote for globalist corporations, biased mass media, corrupt politicians, and foreign influence, wall street and everyone else who has milked the middle class dry. If you have $1000 in your piggy bank, give 1/2 of it to the Trump campaign NOW or America will no longer be America. Globalists have given the Hillary campaign 500 million directly and many more billions indirectly via social engineering movies, other media, and super PACs. I invite you ACT NOW. God bless America.
Who do you think pays the 35% import tax? Do you think the president has the power to establish an import tax targeting certain companies? There are plenty other reasons to vote Trump but those aren't the best because he has little chance getting such an import tax passed.
Protectionism isn't the answer. The answer is reduce corporate taxes and the cost of doing business in the United States so we can compete with other countries. As a business owner, taxes, regulations and government mandates are about to drive me out of business.
