Straight Talk from Donald Trump about Jobs and the Economy

An interview with the hotel magnate has far more common sense about employment and trade than anything you hear out of Washington, where everyone talks up creating jobs but with no specifics about how.

China is manipulating currency to its great advantage, Trump says, and is exploiting American weakness. His recommendation: we should tax Chinese goods to level the playing field and thereby bring back some of the manufacturing jobs that have been outsourced.

So-called “free” trade has been a disaster for American employment for years, but Trump is one of the few figures in public life who will say so.
