Washington, D.C. – On August 3, President Trump signed a new executive order to prevent Americans from being displaced by foreign workers and offshore labor using federal dollars.
According to The White House, the new executive order combats the misuse of H-1B visas, which too often have been exploited to replace qualified U.S. workers with lower-cost foreign ones. President Trump is directing all federal agencies to focus on hiring Americans for lucrative federal contracts, and it requires that only U.S. citizens be appointed to the government’s competitive service.
President Trump’s new order came following the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) planned to outsource 20 percent of its technology jobs to companies based in foreign countries.
Ahead of the 2020 presidential election, former Vice President, Joe Biden, under the Obama administration, touted a record of outsourcing Americans’ jobs. In the liberal fallacy of green jobs, Obama is considered the Outsourcer-in-Chief. “79 percent” of all green-jobs funding in Obama’s $800 billion stimulus package went to foreign companies, with the most significant payment going to a bankrupt Australian company.
Obama and Biden Were Cozy With Communist China
The Obama administration spent $1.6 billion on Chinese and other foreign wind power. The practical effect of those subsidies was to outsource American jobs. During his 8-years as Vice President, Joe Biden assisted in the lending efforts of foreign companies – in particular, a $2 billion U.S. government loan was given to a Brazilian oil company.
Biden Help Bolster a Loss of American Jobs
Under the close thumb of former President Obama, Biden helped facilitate and encourage the shrinking of American manufacturing. One such instance was GE, which made $14.2 billion in profits in 2010, but paid no taxes at all, even though America’s corporate tax rates are among the highest. Indeed, GE received a tax benefit of $3.2 billion from the government in 2010 and received a preferential bailout at taxpayer expense. Meanwhile, GE eliminated a fifth of its U.S. workforce under Obama.
The Dodd-Frank financial law passed in 2010 shifted thousands of jobs from America to foreign countries. The Obama Administration has also encouraged companies to move overseas by interfering with employers’ merit-based hiring and imposing a wide array of costly, harmful new labor and employment regulations on American manufacturers.
Biden’s Vision of Obamacare Is Responsible for COVID-19 Deaths
Biden backed Obamacare burdened our nation’s employers and eliminated as many as 800,000 jobs. Government-mandated healthcare caused layoffs in the medical device industry and wiped out jobs in other sectors. The shortage of medical ventilators and other personal protective equipment as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic can be undeniably the fault of the Obama and Biden administration.
Biden is a “Has-been Hero” of the Democratic party. His out-of-touch policies on trade killed U.S. jobs for eight years and left our nation exposed ahead of the coronavirus, which has taken the lives of 150,000 Americans to date.
Biden’s record is thus: he cannot be trusted on jobs, and if elected, will further leave our nation depleted of work, with a weak dirt economy, totally dependent on government to stay above water.
