    I anticipate Congress and Trump would conjure up a trade tariff bailout for these areas that are getting hit so they dont lose support either in this election cycle or 2020 when Trump's re-election comes around.

    That way they can say they are tough on getting fair trade while saying whoever doesn't support the corporate welfare is anti-american.

      Considering that there are only six companies which control around 90% of the media in the country I would hardly give the local "news readers" comments any weight. They read what is handed to them, and you can bet that this information did not originate locally. Research the facts, then draw your own conclusions, don't let these idiots do your thinking for you. Journalism died years ago.
