If we have Duterte, US has Trump.

 

Many of us especially those with relatives in the US can relate to this thread. But sooner or later, the entire nation, too. The Philippines' economy (i;e. labor, macro etc.) will surely be affected as well.

 

But that's another story.

 

Let's talk about the current ones. About the most powerful leader in the world, Donald Trump. Ten days after his inauguration (January 20, 2017), it seems like a hell for those who are being hit by his “Immigration executive order” or the anti-(illegal) immigrants law.

 

It draws various reactions worldwide. As his days progress, it’s more like of “how to please the Trump” than any relevant internal / external deal.  Lol

 

Anyway, his latest “screw it” moment (rage) was a “dumb deal” with the Australia’s prime minister over the refugee resettlement. That was after his meeting with the UK prime minister, Theresa May. Alas, the latter had been castigated for her allegedly fawning behavior towards the new US president. 

 

So there. Read more here and post your thoughts. ;)

ang tanong diyan dapat eh. may magagawa ba ang pilipinas kung yan ang policy ng us? pwede sila maghain ng reklamo sa United Nations pero sa huli gagawin at gagawin pa rin ng amerika ang gusto niyang gawin.

 

kung isang world power ang pilipinas baka may magagawa pa siya pero sa ngayon walang bargaining chip ang pilipinas. kung tatalikod ka naman sa amerika mayayari tayo sa china lalo na mahina ang ating militar laban sa china kung biglang lumusob china sa atin

The strange thing is, my dad is an immigrant too and a muslim. Pero he voted for trump.

 

I do not know what he is trying to accomplish with this temporary ban of his. But he better accomplish it. Hindi nya naman pwedeng gawing north korea ang US eh. Dapat sa 90 days na yan mapatunayan nya na justified itong ban na ito. Kasi ano pagkatapos? Extend nanaman? Dagdag yun bansang kasama sa ban?

 

Like it or not, US is a country built by immigrants and is made what it is by immigrants. Kaya nga maliban na lang sa mga native americans talaga, lahat naman ng amerikano me kaninuninuan na galing sa ibang lugar. At malaki din ang inaangkat ng mga nagma-migrate dyan. Parang Canda din.

Trump is just doing what he promised during his campaign.  Kagaya dito maraming nagrereact pag yung promise mo sa campaign is actually being done.  Nasanay na ba ang mga tao sa laway lang ang campaign promises?  US also told that Phil. is not a country of concern kaya wala naman sigurong problema sa mga pinoy sa US.   About naman sa illegal immigrants as a whole masama bang mag strict implementation ang US para sa kanilang internal security?

According to my uncle, a US citizen, Trump is good for the US as he is pro-business and Pro-American. He lowered business and personal income taxes which could mean more orifit sharing for employees and more spending power for these same employees and for Americans in general.

So what connection does it have to do with my post? The context of my statement is what he is doing for American and not what he's doing for his family business. The next time you quote my post, make sure you understand what is being posted and not quote a post just because you can't answer my question on another thread. This is an obvious trolling post.

Hindi ba malinaw? Kung pro american sya, eh di dapat mga suppliers nya american din.

Pero tama na, mas malala pa problema natin dito sa pinas. Dyan na muna sila. Basta madami silang similarities ni Duterte, yun lang masasabi ko.

Another non sequitur argument.

 

An American company having its products manufactured in another country does not make it less pro-American.

 

Jollibee buys its beef from India. Does that make Jollibee less pro-Filipino?

 

Neither does it necessarily make you less pro-Filipino if you buy China-made sports shoes.

 

It's called participating in global trade.

Its not just an american company. Its a company owned by the family of the american president and a senior white house official, with products endorsing america first but actually has tags saying it was made in china.

Theres a lot of hypocrisy right there. Not to mention conflict of interests.

His platform is no to illegal immigrants that taking their jobs due to cheaper labor (wala naman siyang sinabing paaalisin niya yung mga legal immigrans sa bansa)  and prevents going in the country of  potential terrorist.  Ano naman connect  dun sa foreign legitimate business that partners with US based company.  Pareho naman silang kumikita.

It is a company outsourcing its manufacturing in China long before Trump became President.

 

Public perceptions of hypocrisy and conflict of interests of such companies comes from the public's ignorance of how global trade works. If you are aware of the business processes and value chain, you'd think differently.

 

Businesses are not just manufacturing. In most of these types of consumer goods businesses in the US, less than 20%  of the value of business is manufacturing. The remaining 80% of value is the combined results of research and development, product design, brand management, logistics, distribution, and retailing. And it goes back to America as value added business. That is why a $5 item made in China is sold all over the world as a branded product worth $50 after it has gone through the supply value chain. $5 goes to China while a greater portion of the $50 goes back to America.

Hay naku di mo talaga ma gets. Diba ang gusto nga ni Trump ang mga manufacturing sa US gawin? Ok lang sana kung hindi yun ang campaign promise niya, 'no?

 

I'm personally am fine about global trade, problema kung sarili mong campaign promise tapos ikaw at pamilya mo ang unang nag va violate nito, ano ang tawag dun? Diba hypocrite?

 

Ayan isang article showing what his direction is regarding "local" manufacturing.

Buy American, Hire American daw... sa China.

Ikaw ang hindi makaintindi na "Buy American" and "Hire American" have nothing to do with manufacturing of American brand consumer goods in China.

 

The American economy benefits more from the value chain in selling Chinese-made American-branded products than if those goods were manufactured in the US soil.

 

Even if they hire fellow Americans to make T-shirts, shoes, etc... the Americans themselves wouldn't be able to afford to buy them. 

 

All accusations of hypocrisy on this matter is borne of ignorance.
