Trump: ‘Since NAFTA Was Approved, We Have Lost Nearly One Third of Our Manufacturing Jobs’

‘As a private citizen, I looked really with sadness as massive shipments of foreign cars have been dumped onto our shores while those same countries have shut their borders to our cars’

TRUMP: "As a private citizen, I looked really with sadness as massive shipments of foreign cars have been dumped onto our shores while those same countries have shut their borders to our cars. We take them, 'Come on in folks. Come on in. No tax, don't worry about it.' We make cars. They don’t take us. Not anymore. Since NAFTA was approved, we have lost nearly one third of our manufacturing jobs in the United States. Since China entered the World Trade Organization, we’ve lost 60,000 factories. Hard to believe. Our trade deficit last year reached nearly $800 billion. Who’s making these deals? I can take anybody in the audience. You’ll do better, believe me. These statistics really should have shaken up Washington into action, but nothing happened. But something did happen. Happened on November 8th. Believe me, it happened. Happened for you."
