The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling:
Because I respect, value, and agree with much of Donald Trump’s opinions and know he loves our Country as I do, I will use his current advice from his new book as this week’s commentary.
Donald Trump is relentless when it comes to opposing Barack Obama and his policies.
He believes an Obama second term in the White House would be devastating for the United States.
We have many threats, he says, and the biggest threat is Obama.
Trump believes that stopping Obama is crucial.
He argues that dealing with OPEC’s illegal cartel and lowering oil prices is key to turning around the U.S. and global economies.
He also says he would slap a 25% tax on all imports from OPEC nations. A prime example is China. It is devaluing their currency to give themselves a competitive trade advantage.
Trump says he will hit China with a 25% tariff on all goods imported to the U.S.
He also advocates a 20% tax on all domestic companies that outsource their jobs overseas.
He further says, I love free trade, but free trade is no good if you do not have smart people making deals for you with other countries.
Trump is worth $7 Billion (with a B).
He wants to save Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. And, you do that, he says, by creating a strong economy.
Trump further favors eliminating the death tax, as I surely do, which he calls immoral and a jobs killer. He wants to lower taxes on capital gains and dividends and reduce the U.S. corporate rate from 39% to zero to encourage domestic business growth. And, he would levy a 20% tax on all companies who outsource jobs overseas.
Trump contends that Congress should throw out Obamacare. It cannot be reformed, salvaged, or fixed – it is that bad! And, that 2700-page Bill is hurting job creations.
Now, about illegal immigration – Trump calls living in America, the greatest blessing a person could ever receive, and I totally agree with that, and he wants a serious border fence. He supports tough enforcement when illegals are arrested and opposes efforts to grant in-state tuition to undocumented students.
And finally, Trump also says he wants to remain a player in the Presidential race because he is fighting for Common Sense and American Values. And, I suspect he might even still run for President in the Summer of 2012.
So, these are Trump’s thoughts with which I mostly agree.
