On Friday and Saturday, President Trump had been meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan to discuss economic relations, trade, and other issues with our ally nation. Then, following the meeting, at a Green Bay Wisconsin rally on Saturday night, President Donald Trump revealed that he renegotiated a $40 Billion deal with Japanese automakers to bring car manufacturing plants back to the United States. He said to the massive Wisconsin crowd of thousands that…

“Prime Minister [Shinzo] Abe, we’re negotiating trade deals because every country has been ripping us off for years, and I really like the prime minister, he’s a friend of mine, but I said, ‘Mr. prime minister, we gotta do something. For so many decades we’ve been losing tens of billions of dollars to China, and Japan, and Indiana, and name any country and we lost, but we’re not losing anymore.”

The President added…

“I said listen, we gotta do something. $68 billion in trade losses over the last four or five years, a year. So we’re renegotiating and I think he’ll be fair. I think he’ll be fair. By the way, he started by saying he’s putting $40 billion into the United States for new car factories. Toyota is coming in with $14 billion dollars. Many, many companies are coming in. And they’re coming in, frankly, to Michigan. They’re coming back, they want to be back, to Ohio, to Pennsylvania, to North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and what’s the name of this special place – it’s called Wisconsin. So they’ll be investing shortly and it’s started already, $40 billion with a b, $40 billion dollars, and it’ll be a lot more than that. The poverty rate for Wisconsin families has reached the lowest rate in 22 years. The unemployment rate for Wisconsin workers has reached historic lows, has never been this low before, ever, ever, ever. Think of that. We’re now the number one economy in the world and it’s not even close.”

At that moment, the crowd chanted…

“USA, USA, USA, USA!”

President Trump continued speaking and then added…

“Prime Minister Abe said to me today, ‘Nobody’s ever talked to me this way’ from our country, it’s true. No, he said it friendly.”

The president commented that in all fairness, the bad trade deals go back further than Barack Obama’s presidency. As with times before, President Trump said that America has been treated as the world’s piggy bank and that the American people have been taken advantage of. He added that over the remainder of his Presidency, indicating that he would continue his work through the end of a second term, Americans would be left with the strongest and greatest economy that they ever have had! After all, between his immigration initiative, his USMCA trade agreement, and his deals and negotiations between foreign nations in regards to the economy and trade, America IS ON TRACK to do just that!
