"Wow! An American president just urged Americans to stop buying products from American companies like John Deere, Caterpillar and Ford. The argument is you should avoid the cost of tariffs by picking companies without facilities in China. But wow. Deere. Ford. Caterpillar"

Many people of course already do something like that when they avoid anything made in China, no matter what brand it is. So in one sense, name-checking the American corporation shouldn't matter but of course it cuts deeper that way.

He's got a history of trying to shame companies into making everything here, despite economically and politically supporting their desire not to do.

Irony, thy name "Republican."
