Obama did it to cause Drumpf a problem. Since Drumpf has been so vocal about illegal aliens, he will be highly criticized if he changes this back. I think that there is another way for Drumpf to solve this for the Cubans using political asylum as a part of it. Most of the people coming through Mexico, unless they were Cuban, were not under political duress. Obama is showing that he has never really cared about people, only things that help promote his ideology and pocketbook.

Some of those voting the amendment down cited concerns with drug safety, but that sounds like B.S. to me. They're in big Pharma's pockets. We're talking Canada, not some third world country. Most of the drugs are manufactured in the U.S. anyway. Drug safety is not the issue.

I agree that it is B.S.. I take a half dozen different medications and most are made in other parts of the world (they are generics). Some in Israel, others in the Philippines, one in Taiwan. Drugs from Mexico, however, are a different story. The quality control there is highly suspect.


I've been all for importing drugs from Canada. Mexico is another story. Drumpf attacked the drug companies yesterday and their stocks fell. The Drug lobby is strong and scared of Drumpf. It was Obama that was going to drain the swamp. Now that Drumpf is in there and they are scared, liberals are fighting him. Maybe liberals can figure out that Drumpf is a Centrist. I doubt it though.

F.F., wanting to elect Clinton shows they have no shame. Their toy was taken away from them and they are having a tantrum. They need to be put in the corner, and Drumpf has been doing just that. Then you get idiots that believe the liberal propaganda that never gets backed up.

There is no doubt that there has been collusion between big pharma and our establishment politicians to keep drug prices high in the U.S.. I've seen it first hand. A few years back I was without health insurance and could not afford to fill my insulin prescription. I ended up getting it from a Canadian pharmacy until our government put a stop to that.

So, to go back to the original point, you're saying Drumpf "can't" have his products produced in the U.S. because of the regulatory climate, even after I've shown you multiple examples of companies that do? Evidently, they find a way to make a profit and "compete in the world marketplace." If Drumpf can't, that speaks more to his business acumen, or lack thereof. If he wanted to produce in the U.S., he could. He CHOOSES not to. I guess this is yet another of his "do as I say, not as I do" scenarios.

Really? Lie(s) far less than Clinton? http://www.politifact.com/personalities/donald-trump/ http://www.politifact.com/personalities/hillary-clinton/

You assume I'm a Clinton supporter. Which makes you incorrect.....yet again. Having said that, it's not about her. She's not the president-elect. "Well, at least he's not as bad as..." doesn't defend his actions. A thief can't defend himself in court by saying, "Well, at least I didn't rob as many banks as..."

Drumpf and treason? Treason is committed by someone, “owing allegiance to the United States who…adheres to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort.” Sounds like Drumpf's defense of Russia fits the bill pretty well, not to mention his discussion of lifting the sanctions on them for their hacking. Of course, reports are he stands to make billions off the oil deals that will happen if/when those sanctions are lifted, but from previous statements made on here, a number of Drumpf's supporters seem OK with that type of collusion.

You may well be correct. Still, this is an example of the Drumpf administration potentially putting the benefits to a multinational corporation ahead of American interests if/when these sanctions are lifted. It stinks to high heaven, regardless of whether Drumpf personally benefits or not. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/12/world/europe/rex-tillersons-company-exxon-has-billions-at-stake-over-russia-sanctions.html?_r=0

"Western sanctions were first enacted on Russia in March 2014 in response to the Russian annexation of Crimea. Then the United States and its allies, including the Netherlands, implicated Russia in the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over eastern Ukraine that July. All on board were killed, including 193 Dutch people heading to Asia for vacations and work, flying for a just few moments over a war zone.

That prompted tighter sanctions. A month later, Russian tanks entered eastern Ukraine, turning the tide against the forces of the American-backed Ukrainian central government. Today, about 300 American soldiers rotate through Ukraine as trainers.

After the Russian incursion in 2014, the United States prohibited the transfer of advanced offshore and shale oil technology to Russia. The American government announced on Sept. 12 that year that Exxon was to halt all offshore drilling assistance to Rosneft, the Russian state oil company, by Sept. 26.

But Exxon Mobil’s high-tech rig was already drilling in the Kara Sea, in an unfinished $700 million project that had yet to find oil. It would be worthless if not completed.

Russian executives then told Exxon Mobil that Russia’s security services would fly in a Russian crew — in essence seize the rig — if Exxon Mobil complied with the American law and left without completing the well, according to an oil company executive who had visited the rig in the Arctic.

Exxon relayed the threat to the American government, and the Treasury Department capitulated, granting an extension that stretched the window to work until Oct. 10. In a statement in 2014, the Russian state oil company denied conveying such a threat to Mr. Tillerson’s company.

With the extension in hand, Exxon Mobil discovered a major field with about 750 million barrels of new oil for Russia a few weeks later. Igor I. Sechin, the chief executive of the Russian state oil company, called the newly discovered oil field Pobeda — Russian for victory.

It is one of the Arctic developments that Exxon Mobil has rights to work on should the sanctions be lifted."

All you are doing is ignoring that simple fact that waves of businesses have fled this country due to the high business tax rate and the regulatory issues that have prevented them from continuing to operate in the U.S.. As far as where the Drumpf products were made, he is going to gravitate towards businesses that are going to give the best deal. Which it is apparently not U.S. companies at this point. He is doing exactly what any logical business person is going to do. BTW, where is the clothing Obama wears manufactured?

He criticizes the policies that cause the companies to leave. He may also say a company should not move their operations outside the US and then import back in, but it is not empty rhetoric as he plans to put in place policies that will help those companies remain here. So we can be competitive with other countries, which we are not currently.

In any case, Drumpf had nothing to do with the current environment for business. I only hope it can change for the sake of the people that need better jobs.

WALLACE: You brought up trade. You would end NAFTA. You would kill the Pacific Trade Agreement. You would impose tariffs on some products like 35 on Ford cars made in Mexico. "The Wall Street Journal" says that you are running as, quote, "the most anti-trade candidate since Herbert Hoover."

Drumpf: OK, so here's the deal. First of all, "The Wall Street Journal" was bought for $5 billion. It's now worth $500 million, OK. They don't have to tell me what to do.

"The Wall Street Journal" has been wrong so many different times about so many different things. I am all for free trade, but it's got to be fair. When Ford moves their massive plants to Mexico, we get nothing. We lose all of these jobs. What do we get out of it? I don't want them to move their plant --

FOX NEWS HOST CHRIS WALLACE: But I want to pick up on that because --

Drumpf: No, the -- the point is, I don't want them to move their plants. I want them to stay in Michigan. I want them to stay in all of the places where they are, or expanded to other places. But I want it to be in the United States. I don't want them to go to Mexico. I don't want them to go to China.

WALLACE: But this brings up the point, the conservative American Enterprise Institute says, look, Donald Drumpf, he owns a dozen hotels, properties, all over the world. Your Drumpf Collection clothing line, some of it is made in Mexico –

Drumpf: It's true.

WALLACE: -- and China.

Drumpf: That's true. I want it to be made here.

WALLACE: I know, but the point they say is you're doing just what Ford is, you're taking –

Drumpf: Sure.

WALLACE: -- advantage of a global trading market.

Drumpf: I never dispute that. I put it in my speeches. I say it -- the ties are made in China and different things. I don't want that. I just ordered 4,000 television sets. You know where they come from? South Korea. And yet, we defend South Korea for practically nothing. We have 28,000 soldiers. They're making a fortune.

I don't want to order them from South Korea. I don't think anybody makes television sets in the United States anymore. I don't want to order from South Korea. I want to order from here. I talk about it all the time. We don’t make anything anymore.


Now you look at Boeing. Boeing’s going over to China. They’re going to build a massive plant because China’s demanding it in order to order airplanes from Boeing. So Boeing now is going to China, building a massive plant. I don’t want that. I don’t want that.
