JD Vance on Free Trade

 

 


GOP used to be okay with trade deals with China; not anymore

Even going back 20-30 years ago, the Republican Party was ok with trade deals and negotiations with China that destroyed the manufacturing base that, by the way, hollowed out our ability to make our own weapons on the national security side and destroyed a lot of good middle-class jobs in state that I came from. We are not doing that anymore. we are the pro-America party, not the pro-China party.

Trump scrapped terrible trade deals, and he was right

Our country used to value working class jobs, and then the manufacturing base of our economy was shipped overseas. I'll fight the corporate elites who want to continue the status quo. President Trump scrapped terrible trade deals and renegotiated them, imposing punitive tariffs on companies that manufacture in China and other nations. These were the right policies, and the effort to rebuild our industrial base is only beginning.

U.S. companies struggle with unfair competition from China

JD moved back to Ohio in 2017. He has seen firsthand livelihoods devastated by job loss, addiction, economic turmoil and so much more. He stood up a business in Cincinnati and has focused on growing companies that create well-paying jobs. His business experience taught him firsthand that so many American companies struggle with unfair competition from China and from their own government, which often rewards multinational technology firms over Ohio small businesses.
