Walmart says the cost of products from China will drive prices up for the consumers!

But wait, Trump promised that we would pay less the things we buys! He said this in his campaign speeches and now we are going to screw! I love this "WINNING"!


The tariffs will destroy our economy and the what Trump will do nothing to save us from a recession or us into to a deep depression! Meanwhile the rich will get their tax cuts and will not share with their workers. One of Trump's many lies and all for what? Nothing as usual!

1. Screw Mal-Wart

they're the outlet store for communist China.

You wonder why manufacturing jobs have been disappearing in this country? It's because Americans would rather buy shoddy crap from China, and WalMart is eager to grease the skids on our country's economic future, as long as the Walton family can make profits from importing junk from Chinese factories that treat both labor and the environment poorly.

And did you know why the stock market took a dump when the tariffs weren't avoided? That's because so very much of the companies on the stock market also depend on selling out American workers, too.

5. Fucking Wal*Mart moves into an area, sells merch at or below cost to drive out businesses.

.

The local economy starts to falter, as unemployment goes up and wages go down, then they start to raise their prices because they have a captive market. All the while socializing expenses and privatizing profits by making employees have to fall back on public assistance to the tune of over $1 million a year per store.

8. It's possible if you don't mind paying 24$ a pair.

Not an option for all of us.

2. Lots of Trump voters shop at Walmart

This is going to be an unpleasant surprise for them.

3. If morality, ethics, patriotism and empathy haven't been enough to erode support

for the repugs and their maladministration then maybe economics will do it. I'm happy to pay more in exchange for repuglican suffering, i'm only sorry that it will also hurt loyal Americans too.
