Trump in Detroit: I want to keep jobs and wealth in America.

Hillary Clinton’s Speech: A Trumpet Upon Which Disaster On Disaster Was Proclaimed

The elitist hypocrisy of Clinton’s remarks was not lost on those Americans left behind for the past eight years by the economic and immigration policies of Clinton and Obama, and most importantly to those Americans whose constitutional liberty is threatened with attack should Mrs. Clinton win this election, her remarks were the sound of a trumpet upon which disaster on disaster was proclaimed.

Bandow: Chinese Repression Threatens Economic Dynamism and Political Stability
