Trump says EU car companies need to relocate to America, or face tariffs.

Isn't Trump going to be embarrassed when he realizes the major European car companies have factories throughout the South?!

No, he'll just claim they did it because of his demands and the rubes will buy it.

And that most of the European (and even Japanese and increasingly Korean) manufacturers' product typically have more "made in USA" content than the average American manufacturer's product? :D

Yes, a lot of manufacturers set up in the South because union protections essentially don't exist and it's right-to-be-screwed states that actively try to bust unions, so they don't have to pay as much.  Interestingly, most of what's made Stateside by US manufacturers tends to be trucks; a lot of cars tend to be made in either Canada or Mexico, or largely from Canadian or Mexican parts (enough that they'd probably not be considered TAA compliant).

Updated Senate information from 538: Democrats aren't as hosed as we first thought. Tester, Manchin, Baldwin, Brown, and Casey are all looking good. Heitkamp (ND) might be in trouble, Nelson (FL) might be in trouble. Donnelly (IN), Stabenow (MI), and McCaskill (MO) are unknowns right now.

If the Commerce Department concludes that Trump can use the "national security" rationale to slap tariffs on automotive imports, the definition of that phrase will have been stretched so far that it is effectively meaningless. The same argument could be used for tariffs on literally anything.

I was close. It was the "they gotta leave the US" thing I was incorrect about.

I bought a Toyota a while back. My mom (not a Trumper but typically pro union and such) said "I bought a Chevy because it's American."

I popped hood on both. Mine was assembled in Tennessee with Japanese and American parts. hers was assembled in Mexico with parts from the US and Canada.

I fell over laughing.

I'm of the opposite ilk- Now that the nation is fully engrossed in concentration camps, now is a great time to start some farkery in the Russia investigation or elsewhere. I give the odds of a Saturday Night Massacre at 33%.

With today being the deadline Congress set for Rosenstein to turn over documents (or else), this may be the perfect time for Trump to say, "I'm tired of the insubordination from a guy I hired" and cut Rod loose.

She's permitted to claw the cat cushion and the wool Army blanket on top of the couch ottoman. Both of those items can handle it, the cat cushion is a salvaged item and the wool blanket is just plain abuse proof.

He's a dipsh*t, but he probably knows this. Keep in mind, he's speaking to his base. He's always speaking to his base. It's all about manipulating his supporters. They are just like his family, people he can abuse and trash and they'll keep coming back to him no matter what. The common clay of the new West.

Many companies that produce very large parts are still made in North America. In many cases, the costs to ship these items outweigh any cost savings that could be made from labor. Chances are your fridge was made in Mexico, your car in Mexico or the US/Canada. Same with the Carrier plants he so famously "saved" (he didn't). Most cars still USA or nearby. Industrial machinery. Stuff like that. But as soon as competition can save on labor costs and make it cheaper somewhere else, it'll be somewhere else.

Oh and likewise, if GM is making cars for China or the EU, they're probably making them overseas.

There might be a couple of job shops around that do custom stuff, like for auto parts or things that require pristine machining, but for the most part I would consider those service industries and not manufacturing.

And then of course you have food. We still make a lot of food here, because most of that stuff can be easily automated, so the labor costs are reduced. And guess what, food labor is where the whole immigration stuff becomes the catch phrase of the racists. Nevermind that most of the racists don't actually want those jobs, or if they had those jobs, they'd get fired because the immigrants work 5 times harder than them and don't complain or cause issues.

But yeah. Manufacturing isn't coming back. It's stupid as f*ck. We'll bring manufacturing back when we revert to a hellhole 3rd world and the African/Asian wages begin to match us. It shouldn't happen, but the way things are going it will.
