Presidential candidate Donald Trump hosted a campaign event last night in a football stadium in Alabama in front of a raucous crowd of 30,000.
While speaking about trade, China, and American job loss, “the Donald” mentioned how he is a big fan of Oreo cookies, but he would never eat them again since Nabisco plans on moving to Mexico…
Here’s his full riff…
From The Blaze:
“You know, Mexico is the new China,” Trump told the crowd, referencing the recent decision by Nabisco to move its factories there.
“I love Oreos. I’ll never eat them again. Okay? I’ll never eat them again,” Trump said. “No, Nabisco closes the plant, they just announced a couple of days ago, in Chicago and they are moving the plant to Mexico. Now, why?”
“I don’t blame China. I respect them,” Trump said. “I’m not angry at them. I’m angry at our leaders for being so stupid. I’m not angry at China.”
Oreos — more specifically, Nabisco — caused the ire of the billionaire presidential contender after the company announced its decision not to invest the $130 million for a factory upgrade and will move production across the county’s southern border into Mexico. Nabisco also recently shut down its Philadelphia factory in an effort to expand factories in Virginia and New Jersey, although union members believe their jobs will eventually be outsourced to Mexico as well.
You know things are bad when American workers fear losing their jobs to outsourcing in order for the company to employ cheap laborers.
He’s not wrong about China. What the communist nation is doing is capitalizing on the weakness of current American leaders. They’re taking advantage of a flaw in our highly liberal system that disincentivizes making money.
What would be great about a Trump presidency is that he will not kowtow to any foreign land, and will always put the American people first. There won’t be an Obama-like Middle East apology tour under Trump, that’s for certain.
