Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Philip Bump, Washington Post: President Trump is heading to Wisconsin on Tuesday to tour the manufacturing facility for Snap-On Tools and to sign an executive order billed as "Hire American, Buy American." A preview of the order described to reporters Monday explains the contours of the second half of that title: Government agencies will be encouraged to give priority to American companies when awarding contracts, with a review of waivers and exemptions that allowed the use of foreign-made products. This is a remarkably hypocritical position for Trump to espouse, as it has been since the outset of his campaign.

It's worth noting that even the "hire American" part of Trump's executive order is hypocritical.

We looked at the reliance of Trump properties on guest-worker visas last year. Since 2013, Trump properties including Mar-a-Lago, Trump Vineyards and Trump National Golf Club have sought to fill more than 500 positions with foreign workers under the H-2A visa program. In total, those positions would have earned almost $1 million a month in salary over their durations.

At least he's trying.

It's a hell of a lot more progress than anything liberals or Obama did.

"At least he's trying." is the exact reaction Drumph hopes his moronic followers will have when he poses next to factories and semi trucks, meanwhile he surrounds himself with bankers and polluters and helps rig the economy against his voters every day while destroying their irreparable planet.

Suckers fall for bumpers sticker slogans and photo ops.
