In a speech on Monday, Aug. 17, President Trump pledged to give tax incentives to companies that bring their manufacturing back from China to the United States. It’s part of his plan to reduce dependence on the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and create a more robust domestic industry, Fox News reported.
“We will create tax credits for companies that bring jobs from China back to America and we’ll impose tariffs on countries that leave America to produce jobs overseas,” the president said.
In a speech slightly longer than an hour in Mankato, Minnesota, Trump reviewed his campaign’s accomplishments in different states. He noted, “With the help of Minnesota workers, we will be the premier medical and pharmaceutical manufacturer anywhere in the world.” He promised, “We will end our reliance on China [the CCP], we will make our critical drugs and supplies right here in the United States.”
The president also charged against his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, “If for some reason the other side happens to have a victory on Nov. 3, forget everything I said,” Trump said. “It all will be made in China plus, it all be made in other countries, like Vietnam and other places … and you just can forget everything I said,” he added.
President Trump made it clear what awaits Americans if the Democrats win the election, “Joe Biden is the puppet of left-wing extremists trying to erase our borders, eliminate our police, indoctrinate our children, vilify our heroes, take away our energy … destroy our Second Amendment, attack the right to life, and replace American freedom with left-wing fascism.”
Trump also criticized Beijing again for letting out the CCP Virus that caused what was once the “best economy in history” to collapse.
The president added a note of humor referring to the challenge he has in rebuilding the U.S. economy again after the pandemic.
“We built the greatest economy in the history of the world and now I have to do it again … you know what that is, is God testing me,” Trump smiled, and pretending a dialogue with God, the president said,
—”You know, you did it once.”
—”Did I do a great job, God? I’m the only one who could do it.”
—”That you shouldn’t say, now we’re going to have you do it again.”
Hours later, the president stopped to give a speech in the state of Wisconsin.
