The crisis of supply chains has been obvious to many of us for years. It’s why neoliberals who made us so vulnerable drive us crazy. Especially when they mock Trump’s instincts on trade when they were the lunatics!

Yes. Trump’s instincts on trade were and are correct. His execution is terrible. But at least he does understand it’s absolutely insane for a country as large as the US to outsource all manufacturing to other countries. It’s suicidal economically and politically.
Even saying that, to the neoliberals, is racism. But destroying your own manufacturing base and impoverishing 20% or more of your population in the process is far worse than that fake “racism.”
