    An interesting interview with Trump.....the epitome of an American capitalist...who says we must deal with China or else we're done...

    Donald Trump discusses with Michael Savage subjects like China, a 25% tariff, jobs, Iran, oil, the dollar, the START treaty, his possible run for President, etc.

    No.

    A business is run to make a profit.

    A government should be run to break even.

    Yep a business is run to make a profit not for the benefit of it's workers.
    The less the workers are paid the more the business makes.
