Republican Business Owners Panic As Trump’s Policies Ruin Their Lives



Earlier this week, CNN sat down with a couple
of Republicans, small business owners to talk about Donald Trump's tariffs and what these
people told CNN was exactly what the rest of us have been talking about for quite some
time now. And that is things or bad things are very
bad for their businesses. Their businesses are losing money. And again, these were Trump supporting republican
small business owners who now say, quote, we're teetering on the edge of panic. And Trump's trade war has been a gut punch
to our business. Uh, one of the business owners that they talked
to owns a small travel accessories business and travel accessories happened to be one
of the things that Donald Trump is slapped a bunch of tariffs on. So whenever this company wants to bring in
their goods from overseas or the materials to make their goods here in the United States,
but they have to bring the materials from overseas, they're having to pay those tariffs
and then they're having to pass it along to their customers. And what these owners explained later after
talking about how panicked they were because of Trump's policies. They talked about the fact that because of
these higher prices, their businesses are suffering, suffering to the point where they're
on the edge of extinction, they may go out of business. The sad part about this story is that this
is not unique. This is something we have seen reports on
for at least the last six months. Farmers declaring bankruptcy at rates not
seen in at least the last decade, not since the great recession, losing their businesses,
CNN and other outlets and talk to those people at the time and they said, wow, I'm really,
you know, shocked that Trump would do this to us. This, this hurts. You know, I, I d I don't know that I support
him anymore, but unfortunately there are also too many people who in the same situation
who were willing to say, I still support them. If I have to lose my farm, I have to lose
my farm. You know, I, I'd, I'd die for this man. They actually said that we, we did videos
on it at the time. That is what they said, but here's the thing,
and and to me, this is what I think CNN missed in their analysis. Like they just wanted to get some republican
business owners on there to talk about how much they don't like Trump, what they really
should be doing more often. Every outlet is talking to the victims of
policy. They could have had a brilliant segment here,
but it fell flat. Talk to the people impacted by what's happening
today and not just the tariffs, the trade war, all of that. How about you go out there and you talk to
the community that was poisoned because this administration repealed regulations on how
much toxic waste corporations can dump into our waterways. They said, sure. Dump more poisons in our water. Go Talk to the people drinking that water. Hell, follow up with Flint. See how things are going. Their follow up with any of the other 2000
areas in this country that have lead levels in their drinking water that are actually
higher than they ever were in Flint. Okay, 2000 other places are actually worse
than Flint. One third of people in this country are drinking
toxic chemicals every day and every single one of those problems I'm describing is the
result of a policy that came out of Washington DC. Most of them, but not all from Republicans. Go Talk to people, report on what's actually
happening in this country. Show people the victims faces. Show them the real world consequences of the
people they send to Washington DC. That's what's missing from the media today. And again, CNN almost could have had a home
run with this issue, but they didn't. They really didn't. I do have sympathy for these people. You know, the trade war is not necessarily
something Trump was talking about on the campaign trail. So it's hard to say that they fell for a con
with this. The trade war is Donald Trump's own creation
because of his own stupidity and lack of understanding about economic policy. So yes, on this issue, I have sympathy for
these people. They didn't sign up for this, they didn't
want this. They're stuck with it. And there's nothing that Congress is able
to do at the moment to fix it for them. These stories are going to become more prevalent. We're going to see more people going out of
business, and even the ones interviewed on CNN did warn that this is going to have a,
a, you know, basically a ripple effect throughout economies. One small business closes, the second one
closes. Suddenly there's less money in the communities,
fewer people able to go out to other businesses and buy things, go out to restaurants and
have dinner. Everybody starts contracting. The economy starts contracting. We've seen the market tank $1 trillion globally,
just on Monday. Yeah, things are going to get bad. And that's why it's important to go talk to
the people who are directly affected. Don't pull the pundits on your networks to
talk about this. Don't pull the politicians on to lie about
it. Go and talk to the people so that everyone
in this country can see the real world consequences of the stupidity coming from the White House.

  1. trumpeteers , you wonna die for that guy ?!
    when the asshole starts his illegal war vs Iran , join the army and set yourself in the first line when the invasion begins , pow pow , you die a fucking wasted hero for trumpet and his minions.

  2. I’m gonna have to disagree with you on these one Farron. These people knew exactly what kind of an erratic character Trump was yet voted for him anyways and most would vote for him again. The deserve exactly what they get. The rest of us are doomed because of the long term damage this presidency will inflict on us.

  3. What I don’t understand is how most of the items in the Trump Towers are made in China…how does that work for him? There’s a loophole in there that we’re not seeing..

  4. Republicans can cry me a river.. Y'all put this pile of feces in office and your Senators are trying to derail this country.. You put on a red hat and now your business is matching.. How great is America now?

  5. if you have sympathy with this kind of scum because they didn't think they'd get screwed over while wanting to do just that to others, then you're just as much of a piece of shit
    seriously, fuck you

  6. nothing "sad" about any of this story
    except maybe that there is no more fitting punishment for those assholes that will ensure their life gets ruined to the point they desperately want to kill themselves

  7. I fucking love the fact these idiots are now going bankrupt because they voted for an openly racist, ignorant islamophobic asshole,etc. and thought they wouldnt be affected. It'd be "others" suffering not them. Fuck them!!!

  8. The people who knew him best (New Yorkers) were warning people not to fall for Donnies business smoke and mirrors, but the same people that talk crap about New Yorkers being shysters and city slickers fell for the biggest con man that could’ve ever come out of New York. 🙄

  9. Trumps import tariffs on Chinese goods threaten to hit American consumers in particular. If the trade war escalates further, the conflict can make a considerable number of consumer goods more expensive.

    For example, not only Chinese clothing and bags become more expensive for American consumers due to the higher import duties, but also fire alarms, laptops and furniture (pdf). And so far, a large proportion of consumer goods that the US imports have not been taken into consideration.

    But if Trump continues with a 25 percent tax on almost all Chinese goods, as he has threatened, then more and more Americans will be confronted with higher prices of all kinds of products.

    How is it working for you ? 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣

  10. The way the stock market fluctuates upon his actions or words makes me suspect that him, or someone close to him are working the market to their advantage as well.

  11. Republican business owners what’s the problem you got a nice tax cut from the Cheeto in charge that money should help out during The Great China Tariff War
