Editor’s note: In response to a recent article we wrote about the American/Chinese trade war’s impact on port cargo levels, we received the following complaint from a reader who’s name we have chosen not to publish.
Are you guys ALL liberal/ progressive/ Democrats or only 99% of you??
When will you get it that China took everyone else’s job EXCEPT YOURS so you think just because you lost some freight cartage that the entire rest of the country should go back to giving everything to China?
Trump may not succeed in reversing the trend YOU STARTED 30+ years ago but he is the best we have and you fight him all the way. Keep voting for Elizabeth Warren/ Berne the Socialist and idiots like that and no one will have any money to buy anything made anywhere and they will all go back to no jobs, no 401K and no pay raises.
