This is only tangentially related to this article, but I’m confounded by the Republican party turning against free trade. My entire adult life they’ve been beating us over the head with the concept that the free market is the best and fairest market, and now the party has swung completely the other direction. I guess it shows the power of Trump, because I can’t imagine JEB! or Little Marco coming out and saying we need to close off American markets from the rest of the world.
(And for the record, I’m strongly in favor of open borders and free markets)
