Can we stop arguing about whether this guy is racist yet?

Seriously.  He is making it pretty clear for us.  I just can't understand all of the people who are sticking up for him after these remarks.  He is blatantly discriminating against people who are from certain countries. 

Anyone remember this?

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

I don't care what he calls these countries, that doesn't bother me.  What bothers me is that he thinks we should not be accepting PEOPLE from these countries, just because they are from those countries.

That's good, but interestingly the latest tax changes actually promote overseas manufacturing.  Those apple jobs are all good of course but would happen anyway to grow the App business and the data centers were going to be built as well.  Steve Jobs made an interesting observation some years ago that the US does not turn out enough production engineers that could possibly be sufficient to fuel the Apple demand, so they have no choice but to manufacture overseas.

And of course their pricing model is to buy low (overseas) and sell high. That isn't going to change.  Manufacturers are not going to push up their cost of production in the US as long as they have access to vast cheap labor pools overseas.

That money would have never seen US soil without the tax change. They've been hoarding it overseas for a decade due to nothing more than the tax laws that were on the books.

For it to be promoting offshoring work, as you say, the manufacturing sector stateside is absolutely booming, at levels not seen since the early 2000s.

He could have closed the tax loophole and brought that many jobs and money back three fold. Instead he is actively fucking the economy. I wonder if the solar tax has anything to do with the fact the Exxon CEO is the Secretary of State
