East bound and down, loaded up and butthurtin'

Truckers voted for Trump in droves. Now they say his trade war is 'killing' their ability to make a living.


-Truck drivers tend to be conservative.

-But a growing group of them are moving away from President Donald Trump.

-They say his trade wars and a slew of tax changes have ruined their ability to make a living.

Morris Coffman has been a truck driver for 35 years. And he's been a conservative for even longer than that his whole life.

"That said," Coffman told Business Insider, "[Trump] is absolutely a moron. His idiotic ideas will tank the economy even further."

Truckers, like Coffman, lean conservative. A Verdant Labs analysis of Federal Elections Commission data found that nearly three-quarters of truck drivers are Republican one of the most conservative jobs in America, along with surgeons and farmers.

And truck drivers supported Trump in droves, according to an Overdrive magazine survey from 2016. About 75% said they planned to vote for Trump, up from 66% who supported Sen. Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee in 2012.

But a sharp downturn in the trucking industry and a slew of tax changes have hampered their ability to make a living. And many connect those two trends to Trump's economic policies.

First farmers, now truckers. Intriguing!

It's a BusinessInsider story about the trucking industry in Trump's disastrous economic policies. So it seems you're doing your typical coping-deflections because of Trump.

Another coping deflection.

This is about the US trucking industry. Clearly you're not aware, but the trucking industry is vital to the US.

Bingo

For someone who claims to love America, hand-waving the damage being done to our Farmers and Truckers (who are largely Conservative voters no less), it's very telling.

This is a good point.

However, it also could be one of the keys to getting Trump a crap ton of votes.

This is not my original idea so I can't take credit for it. But here's the general approach strategy for what is going on with this Trade War:


1. Create an artificial trade war/create an enemy or over-hype an enemy (China).
2. Cause enough problems that there is a slight economic impact. Maybe even a moderate impact.
3. Create fear, uncertainty, and doubt.
4. Resolve the artificially created problem.
5. Tout yourself a a genius, hero, and resolution specialist.
6. Win more support than you started with.

That wouldn't be the first time Trump created a problem, used our tax dollars to temp band-aid it and then claim he's the savior. Done it twice already with the billions to bail out our farmers that are wallowing under his polices/tradewars.

There's very likely going to be a 3rd even larger one for farmers in 2020.

Yeah this strategy is nothing new, I wonder though, if this is the case does he have enough time left to remedy it?

We tell the drivers in work about a lorry drivers strike in 1979 that correlated with a 40% reduction in prostitute murder rates, it's a complete fabrication as far as I'm aware but I love seeing their faces react.

lmao this thread is yet another case of classic leftist projectionism. Ever since Trump whipped Hillary the left has been suffering from endless butthurt. It's hilarious to now see robbie accusing Trump supporters of being the ones suffering from butthurt when Trump is STILL president and Hillary ain't. wink


Wouldn't be surprised if robbie and several other lefties on this forum cry themselves to sleep every night to cope w/their massive-level butthurt only to get up the next day and come on forum to pretend like it's Trump supporters that are butthurt over something. laughing out loud


Oh leftists... no

"He has not affected our business in a positive way," said one truck driver who asked to be quoted anonymously for fear their small business might suffer. "He's killing our business. If consumers aren't buying, then there is no demand. This really isn't about my political leanings it's pure business."

**** small businesses.

Your edge-boy edge aside, no, small businesses are important to the US economy

It's not just independent truckers who are hurting under Trump's disastrous policies, it's larger shipping companies as well; if they have less product to ship; they cut down on their truckers/employees runs/hours.
