Why the complaints now? All the US president is doing is standing up for his workers. We Australians have been taking a beating from China for 30 years and you cowards in the media have failed to point it out. Our weak politicians and the colluding media have given all of our manufacturing jobs away . It’s time to get tough and start negotiating better deals for Australia. The first step is voting out weak politicians that pander to big business. The Americans stood up to the political and media bullies and voted for a president that would work for them and not the Chinese government.
