President Trump stood up for American workers Tuesday during his first State of the Union address, declaring that “the era of economic surrender is over.”
Trump used his speech to blast “unfair trade deals” that harm American workers.
“America has also finally turned the page on decades of unfair trade deals that sacrificed our prosperity and chipped away our companies, our jobs and our wealth. Our nation has lost its wealth but we’re getting it back so fast. Economic surrender is totally over. From now on, we expect trading relationships to be fair and very importantly, reciprocal.”
“We will work to fix back trade deals and negotiate new ones and they will be good ones, but they will be fair and we will protect American workers and american intellectual property through strong enforcement of our trade rules.” (RELATED: Trump Honors The Flag: ‘We Proudly Stand For The National Anthem’ [VIDEO])
