So far his ire has only been directed at manufacturing plants but if companies like GM and Carrier aren't allowed to open plants outside the USA without facing a massive tax what about other companies? The company I work for has 200,000 employees. Roughly 10,000 are IT professionals working in India. Is Trump going to force us to relocate those jobs to the USA? Or are his stances just about pandering to the so-called working class whites in the rust belt? I guess I'm trying to understand the underlying philosophy here, especially considering USA headquartered companies that sell products and services all over the world. Do the 60% of Apple's customers not located in the USA care whether the people assembling their iPhone are working in the USA or not? Should they? Could the era of Trump actually be harmful to the economy and jobs if US companies are selling fewer products/services outside the USA? Or products at Walmart becoming more expensive because of tarrifs Trump slaps on them?
