    Below are the seven key proposals he’s outlining, via Politico, which has the transcript of his prepared speech.

    1) Withdraw the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

    2) “Appoint the toughest and smartest trade negotiators to fight on behalf of American workers.”

    3) “Direct the Secretary of Commerce to identify every violation of trade agreements a foreign country is currently using to harm our workers. I will then direct all appropriate agencies to use every tool under American and international law to end these abuses.”

    4) “Tell our NAFTA partners that I intend to immediately renegotiate the terms of that agreement to get a better deal for our workers. And I don’t mean just a little bit better, I mean a lot better. If they do not agree to a renegotiation, then I will submit notice under Article 2205 of the NAFTA agreement that America intends to withdraw from the deal.”

    5) “I am going to instruct my Treasury Secretary to label China a currency manipulator. Any country that devalues their currency in order to take advantage of the United States will be met with sharply.”

    6) “I am going to instruct the U.S. Trade Representative to bring trade cases against China, both in this country and at the WTO. China’s unfair subsidy behavior is prohibited by the terms of its entrance to the WTO, and I intend to enforce those rules.”

    7) “If China does not stop its illegal activities, including its theft of American trade secrets, I will use every lawful presidential power to remedy trade disputes, including the application of tariffs consistent with Section 201 and 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 and Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962.”

    So, not one word about lowering the corporate tax rate. Nothing about bringing off-shore money back to the US. Nothing about illegal immigrants taking US jobs. Just a lot of posturing, threats of leaving existing agreements, and tough talk about making new deals.

    #5. I can hear it now, "Manipulatin' China".

    #7 sounds like an unleashing of executive orders, the result would be increasing prices for China made goods. This is commonly known as inflation.

    Why would he need to talk about bringing off-shore money back. He has already talked about dealing with immigration. When one is on the campaign trail it is all posturing. It has to be because one is not yet in the whitehouse.

    Because corporations are keeping their money off-shore. That means they aren't using that money to hire US citizens, and are likely using it to hire foreigners in other countries.

    Not one word about cutting corporate tax rates.

    Well, it should have been mentioned in any plan having to do with bringing jobs back to the US. After all, there are jobs here in the US that are not being worked by citizens because of undocumented workers.
