Trump’s Economy Really Was Better Than Obama’s

Bloomberg
“In 2016, real median household income was $62,898, just $257 above its level in 1999. Over the next three years it grew almost $6,000, to $68,703. That’s perhaps why, despite the pandemic, 56% of U.S. voters polled last month said their families were better off today than they were four years ago,” Karl Smith writes.

Businesses Trying to Rebound After Unrest Face a Challenge: Not Enough Insurance

-The New York Times
“It’s a prominent refrain these days from activists in the aftermath of arson and looting—businesses have insurance. Buildings can be repaired. Broken glass is a small price to pay in a movement for justice,” Nellie Bowles writes. But for many small businesses and entrepreneurs, “there is no easy way to replace all that they lost.”

Trump Bars Americans From Investing in Firms That Help China’s Military

-The Wall Street Journal
“American Capital should not be used to finance the construction of Chinese Communist weapons literally aimed at killing Americans and driving the US military out of Asia,” White House Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro says. “This strong action by President Trump puts a stop to that Wall Street insanity.”

President Trump is visiting California today, “where he will be briefed on the devastating wildfires that have spread across the state,” Zachary Halaschak reports. “The president continues to support those who are battling raging wildfires in a locally executed, state-managed, and federally supported emergency response,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere said.

“No one other than the shooter is responsible for the gunfire ambush Saturday of two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car. But the same can’t be said for the protesters who blocked the entrance to the hospital where the two are being treated, and chanted ‘we hope they die,'” The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes.

Nineteen years after Jason Thomas helped rescue two Port Authority police officers from the wreckage of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, “President Donald Trump singled out his heroism during a speech to mark ‘American courage and sacrifice’ in a Pennsylvania field where one of the four hijacked planes crashed after its crew and passengers charged the cockpit,” Sabrina Eaton writes for Cleveland.com.

President Trump signs executive order to bring drug manufacturing back home

The White House – August 6, 2020
Visiting Ohio today, President Trump just signed an executive order to expand “Made in America” production, bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States, and ensure that our citizens have access to the life-saving medicines they need.
 
These actions come at a crucial time “as we fight this battle against the invisible enemy from China,” White House Director of Trade & Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro says.
 
Here are a few things the new order will accomplish:
Establish “Buy American” rules for Federal Government agencies
 Strip away regulatory barriers to domestic pharmaceutical manufacturing
 Help spark the manufacturing technologies needed to keep drug prices low and move more medicine production onshore 
President Trump signed the order today while visiting a Whirlpool manufacturing plant in Clyde, Ohio. This plant represents another important piece of President Trump’s pro-America, pro-worker trade strategy toward China and other countries.
 
In January 2018, the United States challenged years of unfair trade practices by imposing tariffs that stopped washing machine manufacturers, including Whirlpool, from getting undercut by Chinese imports. After President Trump took action, Whirlpool’s Clyde plant alone was able to create 200 new jobs for U.S. workers.
 
“Washington stood idly by as other countries engaged in unfair trade practices, such as massive subsidies, currency manipulation, and . . . the wholesale dumping of foreign-made products sold below cost for the sole purpose of driving you out of business” so they could later jack up prices, President Trump told workers today.
 
🎬 President Trump: “But we didn’t let that happen, did we?”
 
Today’s executive order directs the Department of Health and Human Services to use the Defense Production Act to buy essential medicines and other equipment from within the United States. Drug prices will be kept low for customers, and American companies will be able to compete more fairly on the world stage as a result.
 
In addition, the FDA and the Environmental Protection Agency will now give priority to domestic manufacturers during the regulatory review of pharmaceutical ingredients and essential medicines. Federal agencies will also help prevent the trafficking of counterfeit medicines from third-party sellers online.
 
“It’s a great day for America,” Navarro said.” The President has promised that he would bring home the supply chains in production for our essential medicines, and today we’re taking a very big step towards fulfillment of that promise.”
 
🎬 Peter Navarro: It’s important to bring our supply chains home
 
President Trump has long made returning blue-collar jobs to America a top priority. Now, the Coronavirus pandemic has made even clearer the risks of becoming reliant on foreign nations for our essential supplies. Fortunately, more than any other president in history, President Trump is a fearless advocate for both buying and hiring American.
 
As a result, his list of trade accomplishments keeps growing. NAFTA is gone, replaced by a far stronger United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. China and its enablers on the global stage are at last being held accountable. Trade agreements with South Korea, Japan, and others have been renegotiated to protect American jobs and customers.
 
“Globalization has made the financial elites who donate to politicians very wealthy, but it’s left millions and millions of our workers with nothing but poverty and heartache—and our towns and cities with empty factories and plants,” President Trump said.
 
“We’ve made extraordinary progress in reversing the dangerous tide of globalism.”
