Donald Trump is waging a trade war that hurts a lot of American workers. Maybe he would understand that if our heavy-handed documentaries about the global trading system were more informative.

him taxing European auto makers is kind of ironic given that he owns a rolls-Royce Phantom and other from Europe

Why is the Government holding China solely responsible , it's mainly the choice of profit driven American mutli-nationals and the push toward globalisation has them moving their entire business's offshore, taking advantage of abjectly impoverished citizens from third world socialist regimes - which we supposedly oppose - with zero employee protection practices and offensively extreme low rates of pay? All to increase share holders dividends? It's really Tariffs against US products and business practices... It's ultimately responsible for the destruction of domestic industry, the sole reason for the ongoing erosion of the middle class with increased unemployment and ever reducing opportunities... Meaning it's actually not Mexico or it's people's fault no matter how much POTUS keeps insinuating it... As a positive side note though, I think it's fair to say the Don's Business Guru publishing career is FUBAR.... Who would ever listen to a word this maniac has to say about anything, period.... He's knows absolutely nothing, considering by his own admission, he "know's 'all the words'.....'" What an absolute joke he has become, ironically, nobodies laughing anymore it's merely just sad now.....

The voice actor they use in "Death By China"... Is Martin Sheen. Suddenly feeling more shaky about all the zany antics they pulled off in the West Wing. (also just acknowledging that getting an "ex-president" to narrate this is genius, evil and manipulative, but genius)

@TheRealDonaldTrump Get your head out of your ass and fix yourself. You aren't doing too well for America and... Wait. This isn't Twitter. Ah fuck it. Also another thing is who has a sniper or a way for me to have my abilities in this world? Asking for a friend. Genius film at the end there.

One of the simplest illustrations of trade deficit I heard was that of you and your grocer. Most members of the community buy much more from him than he does from you. That is a trade imbalance but most of us don't see it as a dire problem

Venezuela isn't socialist, socialism is government ran by society. Venezuela just had a corrupt election after Maduro took power after Chavez died and won't let go off power, then holder a corrupt election, thats dictatorship not a society running the government.

As purposely bad as that Last part was I'm still pretty impressed by the after effects work. That's. Provably because it seems just out of reach of my current abilities. It's a shame that I will never reach that echelon due my is inevitable death in the coming weeks due to either suicide, the heat death of the universe, athsma, mega cancer or all of the above concurrently. Or perhaps it's a blessing for I will finally know peace in the eternal silence that awaits us all. Also I'm so happy trump got elected as a canadian (soon be former) college student who has had no tangible consequences of his presidency what so ever its fascinating like live TV. Hes also just the personification of how the rest of the world views America as a whole.

Has anyone perhaps thought that Trump is doing this shit to intentionally fuck us around? I'm just saying. Another thought; What was Benedict Arnold's motivating factor behind his treason? It might be similar, probably not but perhaps a bit.

DEPORT John Oliver he is a traitor to America working for deep state.HBO ,CNN equals FAKE BIAS NEWS paid by deep state.CNN is destroying America !! Are you waiting for another 9/11 or a dirtybomb to come across the border before you secure the border and it’s starts with a wall. Soros spent 13 billion dollars against our country. Clinton stole millions, what foundation ,please .Dems want the illegal Latino’s votes they don’t care about America.CNN and medias double standards if Trump had sold the 20% of our uranium to Russia like Obama and Clinton did; CNN would be asking for prison but if it’s Dems sell it, it’s OK . All ,traitors to America.

To be fair, they dont ship many BMW to China. x) Ive been there 4 times as of now and ive seen like 2 Mercedes and not a single BMW.
Julie W. (26 days ago)
Yes, trade is complicating, but Donald doesn't know the absolute MINIMUM of trade. Think how TERRIFYING that is. He has a kindergartner view of EVERYTHING. This is a SUPPOSED ECONOMICS MAJOR!!! That, along with the fact that Trump CLEARLY doesn't know anything about hyperinflation or anything other than pulling money out of companies (or countries) while they are going into bankruptcy, shows that his education was purchased, not earned. (Although, that's already pretty obvious to anyone who has eyes and/or ears - Trump doesn't even know the colours of his own country's flag!! He coloured in a blue stripe!)

@8:50 kudos to the writers for building a little story for cover around a homophobic joke, which by aluminum guy's comment, was obvious the lowest fruit to be picked. There's nothing else about the stereotype of poorly informed, poorly educated (and just poor in general) red state factory workers to make light of, no sir.
Connor Stickels (6 days ago)
I don't see it as homophobic, the statement was that no one likes Trump, and the real joke was about Melania not loving him. He never made the worker's gender important to the joke.

A 500 billion $ trade deficit annually for almost 20 years is pretty bad... Just like 22 trillion $ of government debt is bad. I'm not saying tarrifs are the way to go, but we are not far from having to throw a hail Mary to recover... I just hope this moron being president Spurs the first 3rd party president. This polarization of views is a serious problem that is taking away from the most serious of issues. BTW, there is no 'degree' in web design. Universities don't even recognize web dev classes as credit towards a CS degree. They are usually elective classes, sometimes not even that -- if they are even offered. It's a bit frustrating because of how big web dev is, along with mobile, and yet it doesn't really officially count... But it may be a blessing in disguise because I don't have to go 50k+ into debt to launch a dev career. In fact, almost 2/3 devs never even attended a university and are self-taught.

According to the US Labor Statistics, manufacturing makes up about 8% of the US workforce, and steel/aluminum manufacturing would only be a fraction of that 8%, with the remaining portion of manufacturing jobs being hurt by the tariffs. There is absolutely no way that the tariffs can be beneficial to the country. They are an absolute disaster.

Sounds weird hearing John Oliver say aluminum. Not wanting to start anything but he’s English so he should say aluminium. (Even my iPad has flagged aluminum as a mistake)😁
