Truckers Turn On Trump

>>Nothing gets done in America without the
hard working men and women of the trucking industry, do we agree with that?>>That’s Donald Trump back in October of
2017 pretending as if he genuinely cares about the well being of truckers in America. Well, if he genuinely cared about them he
wouldn’t be pushing forward with the type of economic policy decisions he’s been making,
because they are hurting truckers and they are really feeling the pain. In fact, Business Insider spoke to some of
these truckers and the quotes are pretty incredible. Now keep in mind that the majority of truckers
are conservative, I’ll give you those numbers in just a minute. But everyone Business Insider spoke to voted
for Trump. Morris Kaufman, a lifelong conservative is
one of the people who voted for Trump. He’s a trucker and he says quote, Trump is
absolutely a moron. His idiotic ideas will tank the economy even
further.>>Love it.>>He also said quote, you cannot bully your
way to a good economy. And what he’s referring to there is the trade
war. The trade war has really hurt truckers, it’s
hurt manufacturing in America. And what does Trump have to say when that
type of criticism comes up? He says, my life would be a lot easier if
I didn’t take on China. But I like doing because I have to do it. What is that even mean?>>It means that face.>>It’s amazing.>>He’s such a baby.>>Let me give you some more. Trump’s trade wars are expected to reduce
the average US household’s income by $580 by 2020 and that’s according to the Congressional
Budget Office. They did analysis on this and just released
a report. And now JL Sims is another trucker who happens
to vote for Trump and he says, quote, the truth about the rates being so low is Trump’s
trade policies manufacturers are scared. Last months manufacturing jobs numbers finally
began to reflect the reduced production. Everyone looks at unemployment rates and things,
mistakenly, that the economy is in great shape. Manufacturing tells the real story. This is a conservative guys, is a conservative. It’s not me saying that, the unemployment
numbers are BS and it’s not a good metric to look at when you wanna talk about a robust
economy. This is a conservative who’s in this field
and sees firsthand how disastrous Trump’s economic policies have been.>>So let’s put more numbers to it, cuz Business
Insider looked at transport research groups and what they’ve reported. Year over year, trucking loads have gone down
37% in July. And rates for those same loads have gone down
by 18%. So the quantity has gone down and so has the
price. So this has been devastating for truckers. I’m actually really surprise at this number,
nearly three-quarters of truck drivers are Republicans. So they lean very, very Republican. Part of the reason I’m surprised is as a soft
spot in my heart for truckers, because we started on Sirius Satellite Radio, and we
used to have a lot of truckers listening to us. We used to have a satellite, I don’t know
if we still have it on show But a trucker hat that said, keep on trucking.>>I remember that.>>Right, and so a lot of truck drivers love
the Young Turks, but apparently most of them, because we believe in facts are Republicans. But even all those guys who like Jesus, this
is devastating but if you think look okay, fine, he’s hurt this one particular industry,
right? No, it’s that and leading economic indicator. So if the truckers are having trouble, because
there’s less products to move, that means the manufacturers are producing less products. And that’s when you hit the iceberg and the
recession hits. Look, some folks are saying, it’d be good
if the recession came. It reminds me when people say, it will be
good if Trump won, because then it will lead to better times later. No, no, no, don’t root for bad things to happen,
okay? Cuz you never know how bad things can get,
as we saw with Donald Trump. You never know how bad that recession can
get, I don’t want it to happen. But whether we want it or not, doesn’t change
the facts. And they’re tracking 37% less goods year over
year. Things are about to, we’re about to hit the
iceberg. Trump sitting on top of the Titanic going,
what iceberg? I have the best ships, they’re the unsinkable
ships.>>So I wanna give you a little more information,
because it isn’t just the trade war that’s negatively impacting these truckers, it’s
also Trump’s tax policy. Let’s go to graphic eight, Trump’s tax reworking
in 2017 led to many truck drivers having to pay hundreds in taxes this year, thanks to
a change in per-diem laws. But for some trucks it was actually worse
than that. Dennis Bridges, an accountant who specializes
in doing taxes for truckers, told Mother Jones in April that 75% of his clients on unusually
large tax payment, and about 20% had to fork over more than $5,000>>Well, apparently there are three professions
that vote, most Republican are surgeons, cuz they make a lot of money, farmers and truckers. Well, when you hit one of your top constituencies
with a giant tax, because you wanted to give more away to big corporations, not gonna play
well.>>It’s not gonna play well, but I also want
to kind of wrap this story with giving you guys some caution, right? Don’t get too confident, don’t think that
getting a Democrat elected is in the bag. You don’t need to worry about anything, because
there are people who will be hurt economically and they’ll still support Trump. Take a look.>>Industry data shows the rates trucking
companies charge are down nearly as much as 17%. The reason in part, the President’s trade
war, with fewer goods like steel and electronics coming into us ports, fewer trucks are needed
to move them. Zimmerman says his company’s revenues are
down 8% from last year. Do you in any way feel that he’s the man responsible
for the trade war and the setback you’ve been dealt?>>It has an effect on our business. Yes, but I don’t blame him for it.>>That’s it, it has an effect on our business
but I don’t blame the guy making the economic decisions for what’s happening in my industry,
it’s absurd.>>Okay, all right. But at the same time I don’t want want you
to get discouraged the overall numbers politically are fantastic for Democrats and terrible for
Donald Trump. He is got a five point drop in his approval
ratings overall, he’s down to 40% approval. Look, any other president at 40% people will
be talking about, now almost a year out from the election, he’s in a world of trouble. And laws of physics still apply, the only
thing that’s hanging in there is half the Americans still approve of how Trump is handling
the economy. If any kind of recession hits and he loses
that base, good night Irene. It’s over before it even started. I know you’re thinking don’t say that, don’t
say that, because you’re so shell shocked from 2016. But I’m telling you, you’re over shell shocked. Look at these numbers, they’re a disaster. On foreign affairs he polls at 40%, on immigration
he polls at 37%, they hate this immigration policies. On handling race relations he polls at 32%. Even on my whites, he polls at only 40% on
race relations and dropping. He’s a disaster across the board. If things continue like this and if the economy
takes a downturn as the trucking story indicates, he’s gonna get lacked. He’s gonna get clobbered, it’s gonna be so
embarrassing. I think Scaramucci might be onto something
about him just bailing and going cuz he doesn’t wanna get embarrassed. It’s gonna be a historic landslide. If things go that way, I know, look, and now
finally I’ll do the note of caution cuz I can see Anna getting nervous.>>Yeah, that optimism is ridiculous, the
odds are->>No, no, the optimism is 100% real. But the problem is his opponents are the Democrats
and the Democrats can lose any race.>>Right.>>Yeah.>>So we have got to make sure that they pick
someone who’s actually gonna fight for their American worker. If you get a progressive who’s gonna fight
aggressively for the average American, we’re gonna win easy. You get like a Biden, going, well, I don’t
know, Trump might be on to something, I don’t know. I wanna work with the Republicans, then you
might hand the election to this idiot who otherwise has no chance.

  3. Every time someone claims Trump's approval has dropped, they then state some figure between 35-40%. That was his approval rating in mid 2017. Nothing has changed in two years. Get it?

  4. 17 year trucker here. Rates and volume are considerably down for some time now. My dipshit family is mostly republican’t…not this guy 😐👈. Progressive for as long as they stay with the facts. Feel the Bern!

  5. History proves repugnantkkklans are Great at Wars And Destroying the Economy. Democrats then have to Fix it,just look at Clinton and Obama Economies to fix damage left by Conservatives!

  6. It's not just Trump's policies it's also large trucking companies like Swift that bid the prices so low that it ruins it for everybody else. these big trucking companies are willing to run their trucks at a loss in order to gain market share. They know they're putting out the mom and pop trucking companies babe getting low and they know that they can write off those losses and future taxes. Walmart Amazon all these big companies do it. these big trucking companies have done it for so long that their bidding themselves out of business.

  7. Dont get how working class people vote right wing because they dont give a shit about the working class your only voting against your own interest

  8. Nothing tastes better than the tears of a dumb ass farmer or trucker who voted for the orange POS and are now going broke. Reap what you so. Unfortunately the majority of the country has to suffer also.

  9. Drumpf cares about nobody, except himself! And these idiots vote against their own interests when they vote for Repugs & a complete moron, like this pathetic excuse for a human-being!!

  11. No one should be seen in public wearing a trucker hat but a trucker. It's like putting on a white tracksuit and having a huge dog drag you about town with a choke chain around its neck.

  12. Don't blame Trump. He did EVERYTHING in his power to PROVE he was incompetent and unfit BEFORE the election was ever held…


  14. Apprentice politics and economics. Trump you got it wrong man. This isn’t how to run a country. Sorry you are out in November 2020.

  15. ONLY we Americans can change this embarrassment. VOTE all DEMOCRAT in 2020 🇺🇸🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🇺🇸
    Because republicans are Turing a blind eye 🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈

  16. you know there are a lot of white people who identify with a particular ethnicity and many of different ethnicities who simply look like white people right? And they will take offense.

  17. I can see him winning the election and by the same margins the polls have the Democrats winning.
    The electronic voting machines, they've already shown to be quite vulnerable and since wealthy Republicans own those machines already, they will just have them swap the votes and Trump will win in a landslide.
    My last prediction is that the Democrats won't contest it due to the fact that their leaders are already being paid by those same Republican power players.

  18. My sons are both upset because the Trump tax policies mean they can no longer deduct property taxes amongst other things. They didn't vote for Trump but that doesn't mean they're not financially damaged by his policies which are doing damage to the entire country, Republican or not.

  19. How is he handling the economy, all he did was give the super wealthy big tax cuts, that is not helping the Working class .

  20. I'm a driver/ owner operator myself and yes from what I see and hear out here on the road, yes these drivers love Trump. Why we have so many out here that's dumb enough to love him is bizarre. The freight rates suck and the roads suck even worse, tearing up my truck. And yes the fuel taxes and prices are outrageous.

  21. Send these clips to CNN , ABC , and CBS. That way you can save Americans and not live like American peasants ! Was America at one time The Leader of Nations in 1950 ?

  22. As a fellow trucker 30 years we had a saying ( if you got a truck brought it ) Can't wait until 2020 and lock him lock him up

  23. In 1992 I lived with very nice kind turkish people , and most of them were truckers , leading the trucking companies, in a very strategically manner here in America .

  24. Truck drivers seeing their jobs taken away by artificial intelligence, job automation, and self driving trucks. And Andrew Yang and Bernie Sanders have a solid progressive plan to deal with it and solve it. Not Donald Trump and Joe Biden

  25. Truckers are defacto Marxists but American truckers don't know this.
    Remember, Karl Marx's advice to the working class is: "Workers of the world, seize the means of production".
    Most, if not all truckers, desire to own their very own truck.
    Purchasing instead of seizing is not the issue.
    The issue is CONTROLLING the means of production (your truck) through ownership.


  27. Do y'all really think that Trump cares about truck driver's. He fooled y'all to. He just wanted your vote. In 2020 vote him out. It's going to get worser. If Trump steals another 4yrs it's really going to get bad. Vote all republicans out because they sit around and watch and they don't do nothing about it. China just put more tariffs on America because of Trumps tariffs. Wake up truck drivers.

  28. The Trump administration wanted to alter the way the unemployment number were being counted. That was an article in the Washington Post.

  29. I’m a trucker I’m trucking as we speak owner operator struggling to survive currently and the winter is coming for us it’s gonna get even worse and NO I didn’t vote for this orange piece of shit in fact I didn’t vote at all but there is no doubt I will vote for Bernie real true genuine champion of this great nation who will for sure change our lives drastically, please people if you care for your self and your loved ones let’s get Bernie into White House, God Bless Bernie Sanders! God Bless America!

  30. You people of America get up and speak the truth trump is helping American at all he is bringing American down these who support trump are foolish people

  31. Little Donnie's trade policies have hurt TRUCKERS, MANUFACTURING, not to mention FARMERS.
    That's a lot of people to get pissed off at you just before an election!
    But, he still thinks his dwindling army of brain-dead, inbred supporters will keep him in office for another 14 years (?) and the guy at 6:15 is a good case in point!
    We should send this over-sized Ommpa Loompa back to where he came from…
    … but, Loompaland doesn't want him back.

  32. Farmers and Truckers will vote for this idiot again because they are the type who refuse to understand that he is destroying this country.

  33. Anybody that has two more pedophiles working for him George that got busted 3 months ago 4 child porn probably was w/ EPSTEIN!!! &&& Roger Stone still both waiting on court hearings should have at least security clearances stripped !! Does'nt any1 agree???

  34. Shit is about to hit the fan folks, I see a huge slowdown in online sales, people are just not spending and things are getting a lot more expensive soon

  35. Wake up people Trump is lieing to you again. He thinks everyone is stupid. After his term is up, people will still be living paycheck to paycheck. Some people will end up with no jobs, and homeless. If he tells you that the sun is shining, you better look out the window. Because it's probably raining.

  36. Surgeons are probably doing ok, but the truckers, the farmers, the coal miners and the rest of the working class all got conned by trump. Wake up America!!!

  37. Why is manufacturing down? Because people are buying less. Why are people buying less? Because Trump's economic policies have increased the costs of goods.

  38. Ask the coal miners in Kentucky and West Virginia how they feel about Shitstain Donnie and how he refused to meet with miners who have black lung cancer and other medical problems.

  39. ? People where I'm from are going out to eat and buying unnecessary stuff right and left. Business is booming all around me. Driving around having fun. Everyone is hiring. This is BS. I haven't voted in any polls. Anyone else?

  40. Trump could still fix the election, the manufacturers of the voting machines made Republican political contributions.

  41. "Nothing gets done in America without the hard working men and women of the trucking…in-duhs-tree"
    Then why is Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court you bloated dipshit?

  42. Just go to Walmart anyday of the week. You'll see people spending on all kinds of junk they don't need. Parking lot stays full. So. I call BS.

  43. Battered Woman Syndrome. The same people who are suffering from Trump's tariffs are likely to continue supporting him. Tsk Tsk.

  44. I work at a shipping center for a top 5 manufacturing giant and as of next month they are CUTTING all of 3rd shift at 2 shipping facilities…Shit is getting real and most people don't know what's coming

  45. I am a union produce worker in Northeast Ohio and this trade war is going to destroy most of an entire town if it continues this way. F*** Walmart, I work at a family-owned independent grocery store. He has no f**** idea what he's doing.


  47. Again…
    Creating facts with out actual hard evidence or actual statistics they can provide..
    reading off a card does not make it true..
    reference to one trucker means dogshit…
    don't listen to these LIARS
    they are Turkish frauds who lie time and time again…
    PROVIDE EVIDENCE besides a blue background with white letters…
    THIS Country is flourishing…
    Not one statistic from something that is believable ….
    First it was Russia
    Then it was he's a racist
    now it's the economy…
    it's a joke…
    The economy is at an all time best…
    TRUMP em BABY 2020

  48. 25th AMENDMENT ANYONE????

  49. I live in a small town in South Dakota. And the Walmart is cutting it's hours. It's no longer ooen 24 hours a day. Even Walmart is taking a hit.

  50. Just imagine what an intelligent writer could do with Trump’s presidency. They could go Euripidean, with American details strictly observed. A talented person could do wonders with a mythological Greek tragedy full of glory and pathos. Trump is, after all, a glorious tragedy as well as comedy. But both papers, as well as CNN and the networks, are under the influence of the pimps of death, as I call the neocons; those dark forces behind the Iraq and Afghanistan tragedies. William Kristol, a Never Trumper, has grown increasingly cartoonish by always being wrong, yet his career keeps advancing. As the saying goes, there’s a sucker born every minute.
