Do the math- how do you get a job back to America that has been lost to a low wages country? You either lower wages in America or build a protectionist wall. Am I missing some genius third way?

I haven't anywhere said if we will or will not , all I have said is that you have no idea what is going to happen so stop lecturing people with the belief that your view is the right view ,
We are all welcome to an opinion but I will not tolerate being lectured because you don't like his beliefs , suck it up he was elected democratically and he will do his job .
Whether or not you like it is inconsequential.

I am just repeating what he said again last night in his inauguration speech.

Should that not be believed? Who was he lying to? He sounded pretty emphatic to me.

Ok well let's agree to disagree rather than blue for no reason , you think he is no good , I think Hillary & Obama are frauds

I have no idea what he is going to do or not do for Australia but I have a feeling you may be surprised as to what will happen over the coming years , without being beholden corporate manipulation that the dems are .

Again just an opinion and not directed at you PT


There , easy peasy japanesee .

I just think that it's amazing that this thread is 26 pages long - 25 of which is taken up by the SJW's telling us what Trump has done wrong as president and how he will bring about Armageddon - and he hasn't had the job for a day yet!LOL

From the TV coverage I've seen since the Inauguration of President Trump, what is interesting is - and let's not even consider the vindictive O'bummer and Clinton, or the "celebrity" losers - the parallels between the thumb sucking hand wringing punter in the street in the US, and our own precious leftards ... these SJW's who claim superiority to anyone with a moderately conservative view, who engage in their endless pilgrimage to defend the downtrodden victim class, who spend all of their waking moments allegedly protecting the minorities from any kind of imagined abuse and suffering, still have the time to arrange vigilante groups to go out and force their opinions and beliefs on the people who rejected them ... and they do it by way of confrontation, blind rage, and criminal verbal and physical conflict, aimed directly at anyone who actually supports the democratically elected ruling party ... they are the greatest bunch of cry baby dick heads I can recall seeing in action anywhere!Cry

... and they STILL don't get it!Wacko

Yeah, Passing Through seems to have an almighty time struggling with the concept of Americans voting in someone based on their own self interest. As if we don't do the same here or something. LOL

I see the celebrity gang is out in force today again.

Madonna in her speech; "Good will win in the end"

Madonna in part of her song; "Donald Trump suck a d**k, I'm not your b*tch".

The celebrity hypocrisy above is a beautiful example of why these people helped Clinton lose the election, and they are still doing it. LOL

Settle in for a yuge 4 years.

I know some of you blokes wouldn't have a clue which way is up, but you vote with a sense of how you are impacted and the mutual benefit a govt can provide. Usually a US President has a neutral effect on our situation.

Clinton, Bush, Obama had little negative impact on Australia, apart from being involved in conflicts we didn't belong in. We had always battled a level of trade protectionism from them but we benefited in other ways, like security.

Trump wants us involved in blockading our biggest trade partner, and promises to make us pay heavily for the privilege. We spent a long time trying to get US to lower tariffs on particularly agricultural trade. Barnaby Joyce celebrated the negotiating of a better deal on a number of products that would energise our farming sector. Trump has vowed to undo that

Maybe you can't or don't want to see it but when we are struggling to pay our bills and lower paid workers and pensioners are being asked to carry a bigger burden for deficit repair, Trump has just raised our rent and increased the cost of everything we buy. 

How is that something to celebrate? He isn't making Australia great again.

that is democracy they voted him in, fine, the problem is if they think it is in their own self interest , well, it is always about Trump's self interest, America is stuffed for at least 4 years and many other countries with it
