Do you think he knows he's lying, or is it possible that he really is this ignorant? Either way, he probably doesn't mind sounding ignorant because he knows his base is even more so.

I remember when the big push was 'Buy American' was the big pitch. This was when Japan was cleaning our clock with cheap imports. Given a choice Americans perfer cheap goods to saving American manufacturing jobs. Sad but true.

You used then weapons you have. Can we continue to pretend that China has acted in good faith? Or that the goods are worth even what we pay for them? A refrigerator if bought in 1999, and made in the USA, was better than the like one I bought in 2009 and for the same price. You gets what you pays for.
