From Pat Buchanan writing at World Net Daily:
One never hears Trump discuss the architecture of our rules-based global economy. Rather, he speaks of Mexico, China and Japan as tough rivals, not “trade partners,” smart antagonists who need to face tough American negotiators who will kick their butts.

Trump to Ford: Bring that factory back to Michigan!
