Former President Donald J. Trump recently released a new campaign video that addresses his trade platform for a potential second term in office. In the statement, he calls for a “sweeping pro-American overhaul of our tax and trade policy” to boost American production and reduce our reliance on China.
The former president also slams Joe Biden’s trade policies, claiming the president is “pushing the same pro-China globalist agenda that ripped the industrial heart out of our country.” Trump War Room posted the video on Twitter titled, “#Agenda47: @realDonaldTrump takes a SLEDGEHAMMER to Globalism with America First trade platform for 2nd term.” See the video below.

The former president starts off by shredding Biden’s policies, “Joe Biden claims to support American manufacturing. But in reality he’s pushing the same pro China globalist agenda that ripped the industrial heart out of our country. It ripped us apart. Biden and the globalist support raising taxes on American production. They support more crippling regulations killing American jobs. They support skyrocketing domestic energy costs and they support massive anti American multinational agreements that send our wealth and factories overseas. Very simply the Biden agenda taxes America to build up China, China is the big beneficiary. We cannot let that happen.”
Trump goes on to discuss parts of his new plan, “My agenda will tax China to build up America. The heart of my vision is a sweeping pro American overhaul of our tax and trade policy to move from the Biden system that punishes domestic producers and rewards outsourcers to a system that rewards domestic production and taxes foreign companies and those who export American jobs. They will be rewarded and rewarded greatly and our country will benefit. To achieve this goal we will phase in a system universal baseline tariffs on most foreign products on top of this higher tariffs will increase incrementally.”
The former president then goes on to address the issue of dependence on China stating, “I will implement a bols series of reforms to completely eliminate dependence on China. In all critical areas. We will revoke China’s most favored nation trading status and adopt a four year plan to phase out all Chinese imports of essential goods everything from electronics to steel, to pharmaceuticals. This will include strong protections to ensure China cannot circumvent restrictions by passing goods through conduit countries, countries that don’t make a product, but all of a sudden they’re selling a lot of product. It comes right through China, right out of China, and right into our country. We will also adopt new rules to stop us companies from pouring investments into China and to stop China from buying up America allowing all of those investments that clearly serve American interests.”
Trump concludes his statement reiterating Biden’s incompetence, “Biden will never get the job done. He is weak on China because the corrupt Biden family has received millions and millions of dollars from entities tied to the Chinese Communist Party. Everybody knows that. They try and hide it and the fake news doesn’t want to talk about it. Biden’s pro China economic program puts America last and it’s killing our country. My cutting edge trade agenda will revitalize our economy by once again putting America first. And by the way, we’ll get along very well with China. And you know what the reason is they’ll respect us again like they did just two years ago. We will quickly become a manufacturing powerhouse like the world has never seen before. Thank you very much.”
