Default Trump warns of ‘retribution’ for companies that offshore jobs, threatening 35 percent

GASP!....this I could get behind.

<President-elect Donald Trump fired another warning shot Sunday at U.S. companies considering moving their operations out of the country, threatening “retributions or consequences” such as a hefty border tax if they do.>

<The pronouncements came in a string of early morning tweets. Trump said he intends to incentivize businesses to stay in America by lowering corporate taxes and slashing regulations, two key components of his economic agenda. But he also warned that companies with offshore factories would face a 35 percent tariff on goods sold back to the United States.>

Add to this idea a bit...

Trump gets trillions of dollars of off shore corporate profits to come back to the US with a one time 10% tax.

Romney had such a plan and after elected, Obama tried to get it out of him, but failed..

That kind of money can build the factories that produce jobs.

Cut regulations and administration costs and add another big chuck of dough to the pile..

Trump is a business man who understands you don't just sit around and play golf. This man is all about getting things done that will benefit all Americans. To bad he will make the Democrats look like they have been sitting on their collective hands. If it were not for that, maybe the two parties could get along...

True, Kirk. Apple alone is sitting on 200 - 300 billion in cash assets overseas. Sooner or later Apple will be looking for expansion, and would obviously prefer using their own money. Our government says no. So, do not expect the next Iphone 9 to be built in Detroit.

It's a brilliant strategy. Demand a company produce in the US, then eliminate the source of capital available.

It is not going to produce jobs on the scale you are thinking. Factories are going to be robots not people.

It takes lots of people to build those factories...

It then takes a supply line full of people to feed the needs of production.

Not to mention the out sourcing of sub contractors for said parts.

You might be surprised at just how many people would have jobs directly or indirectly.

Robots are here to stay. High labor costs were the reason they are here. So in that way your right.

I think it is still much better than having those plants out side of our borders. Democrats disagree. But of course they don't have much say anymore.

It never surprises me anymore, to watch how Progressives try to control business activities from what they pay their employees, and their CEO's down to whom they can sell and what insurance and benefit packages they have to buy. None of these efforts promote the general welfare of the country.

Yet when anyone else does something controlling, that is a positive for business, the same Progressives complain about overstepping.

The Democratic Party has yet to recognize why they lost 2016 so big. By big I mean they lost at "EVERY LEVEL" from state legislatures, to governors, to the Congress and the POTUS.

Proof is in the pudding and that pudding includes re-election of Pelosi and their current love of Elizabeth Warren and promoting Congressman Ellison for Chairman of the party.

Americans do not want a centrally controlled economy with an Imperial President dictating acceptable social norms and business practices. Americans want to be safe from predators, scammers and our nation's enemies. And that includes politicians.
