Democrats Finally Face Reality on Globalization

After decades of criticism and warnings from Republicans, Democrats are finally fed up with the strategy of globalization that defines the country’s trade policy.

Once again, Democrats find themselves echoing former President Donald Trump as 2024 elections draw nearer.

This time, they’re latching on to his “America First” policies that promoted more domestic production over global imports.

“Opening the U.S. market to imports from other countries can, and has disrupted domestic industries,” Representative Richard Neal (D-MA) said during a Ways and Means committee hearing.

“U.S. trade policies should not come at the expense of American jobs or the rights of workers at home or abroad,” he said, referring to the most recent update to NAFTA, also known as the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

His comments came after White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan lashed out at the World Trade Organization last month in a speech that questioned the role of markets in the global economy.

“In the name of oversimplified market efficiency, entire supply chains of strategic goods, along with the industries and jobs that made them, moved overseas,” Sullivan said.

“And the postulate that deep trade liberalization would help America export goods – not jobs and capacity — was a promise made, but not kept.”

He also targeted China, saying, ““We can’t wait for WTO reform. We have to be pursuing a range of other strategies to deal with the fact of China as it is.”

Still, the US Chamber of Commerce advised against leaving the WTO.

“Leaving the WTO would be a lonely course: Leaders of the world’s largest economies have reaffirmed their commitment to the organization — and to its reform,” the body wrote in 2020. “If the United States left the WTO, its members would be free to raise tariffs and other trade barriers against U.S. exports.”

But with increasing legislative focus on domestic production and American worker rights. it’s clear something has to change.


  1. The sad thing is that the stupid, un-informed Dem voters think what this turd says is the first time it was mentioned. They either don’t know or choose to not remember that this was Trumps philosophy from the get-go.

  2. Aa the wise person said of the truth: it must first be opposed, then ridiculed, after a while accepted, and then comes the time to prove that it is not new, and that the credit of it belongs to some one else.

  3. Every policy President Trump implemented was for the good of our nation and the good of the American Citizens. Too bad people with half a brain couldn’t comprehend that. Maybe this time around they can do the right and smart thing and put the Best POTUS Possible to save our America.
