Donald Trump believes that it is immoral to move a factory overseas. That was the upshot of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's pre-inauguration comments, summarizing the new administration's position on trade. His remarks should cause deep concern to anyone who values trade as part of a free society.
The good news, according to Spicer, is that tariffs aren't definitely a part of Trump's game plan. However, the president is very concerned about “American companies who go offshore, get rid of American jobs, and then want to sell back to the United States.” This is something Trump just “doesn't think is right.”
