    Trump pokes his nose into one of the world's biggest mergers

    Yet the merger of the companies – the second-largest deal announced last year -- hasn't been approved by the federal government that Trump now controls - and regulatory concerns remain, especially because it could reshape the world’s food supply. And Trump doesn't yet have an agriculture secretary to even consider whether the deal would help farmers and set policies on such mergers.

    The tactic shows how his hands-on style could create problems, how he’s blurring lines in the way traditional government works, and how committed he is to forcing companies to create new American jobs to fulfill his political promises. He has personally become involved in a number of deals, including bids to save jobs at auto plants and with Carrier, an Indiana air conditioning company. His tweets have rattled the stock market and sent company CEOs hurriedly rushing to Trump Tower for a meeting. They have privately angered business executives, who say business policy shouldn't be set by a president-elect in 140 characters.

    Publicly, however, executives have spoken glowingly about Trump’s approach to the business community, given they have no other choice.
    This can go bad in so many ways.

    The same reason slavery passed out. A well paid worker is cheaper than a slave. A well paid worker would spend the money earned on goods and services which means there will be more work to be done and more money to be made by the employer.

    The whole exchange demonstrate he does understand what the phrase means. It is about having the same rights under the law not that we are literally all the same. In context everything he says makes perfect sense. English isn't my mothertongue so I might be missing something.

    False logic -- there's no reason those nations can't be pressured to increase the quality of life for their workers, especially by the companies themselves who could simply choose to do business in countries or with companies that don't use child labor.

    In the same way many companies hire "illegals" and pay them under the table in America, these aren't things that Americans "want" so much as unethical things that companies do to make more money for their stockholders.

    Trump himself hires foreign workers to tend his vineyards and manufactures many of his products overseas -- shouldn't he be leading by example?

    It's not just the iPhones. It's pretty much everything. Manufacturing in the US is just more expensive than anywhere else. American workers would have to be willing to take huge pay cuts to make it viable.

    Well, that's a problem you only get when you elect deatheaters who want to legismate the entire country into poverty and don't even want the concept of minimum wage to exist.

    That's where you're right. He's gonna make those 7 million illegal citizens into legal Americans not to be exploitable by corporations again.

    he'll deport the 3-4 million prisoners sucking you tax money though.

    So you're saying he's not planning to run for a second term?
