We broke the Disney abuse story two days ago, check it out here. Disney fired workers and replaced them with foreigners. And we are talking people who were pretty high up in the food chain.
(Conservative Tribune) Every day, it seems that Donald Trump comes up with new ways to help American workers, ways that most politicians wouldn’t dare talk about — but that doesn’t stop The Donald.
In an interview with Breitbart, Trump made a bold statement against Disney’s policy of hiring foreign workers as well as bashed Republican presidential rival Sen. Marco Rubio.
The interview centered around the government’s controversial H1-B program, which allows foreign workers into the United States at the expense of millions of Americans. Rubio recently floated a bill to expand the program, but Trump didn’t like it one bit.
“I am calling TODAY on Disney to hire back every one of the workers they replaced, and I am calling on Rubio to immediately rescind his sponsorship of the I-Squared bill and apologize to every Floridian for endorsing it,” Trump said.
“I am further calling on Rubio to return the money he has received from Silicon Valley CEOs and to donate the money to a charity helping unemployed Americans whose jobs Rubio has helped to destroy,” he said.
Trump even went a step further, promising that should he become president, he will take legal action against any company that replaces American workers with foreign workers.
“If I am president, I will not issue any H-1B visas to companies that replace American workers and my Department of Justice will pursue action against them,” he said.
Trump was particularly harsh on Rubio’s proposal.
“It’s a disaster. It would allow any company in America to replace any worker with cheaper foreign labor. It legalizes job theft. It gives companies the legal right to pass over Americans, displace Americans, or directly replace Americans for good-paying middle class jobs. More than 80 percent of these H-1Bs are paid less than the average wage,” he said.
Trump also disagreed with Rubio’s statements that America has a shortage of tech workers, which has been his justification for the H1-B expansion bill.
“Rubio is dead wrong. America produces the best and brightest in the world. It’s time to stand up for our own students — many of whom are racked with terrible, terrible debt and facing a disastrous job market,” Trump said.
“We are graduating two times more students in science, technology, engineering, and math than find jobs in those fields every year. We have a surplus of talented Americans and we need them to get jobs first,” he said.
Trump has castigated President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, and made no secret of his desire to beef up America’s military, but he constantly pushes economic strength, too. He promises that, should he become president, he would create millions of jobs and restore the American dream.
So far, many people have believed that, vaulting Trump to the top of the GOP pack. Hopefully, if elected, Trump will follow through on those promises and help “make America great again.”
