Will these be produced in America?
I understand that the Chinese are very small people. Accordingly, it makes sense that they’d be employed in making very small cameras, like the GoPro.
However, America has its fair share of small people as well.
We have midgets.
Very small people. Small hands and everything.
We have children.
Most of them are even unemployed. Perfect.
There’s no reason these small Americans couldn’t be put to work producing GoPro’s tiny little cameras.
America won’t lose to China, even when it comes to smallness.
GoPro announced on Monday that it plans to move “most of its US-bound camera production” out of China by summer 2019 as a result of the ongoing trade war between the two countries. The action camera company didn’t say specifically where it will move that slice of its overall manufacturing efforts.
Yes, technically, they might just move the production out of China and into some other shithole country.
But then, the reason why they’re forced out of China is because of Trump’s trade tariffs – and there’s no reason more tariffs couldn’t be applied to other nations as well.
In the long term, if America’s trade policy holds course, all of these companies will have no choice but to repatriate their factories to the US.
We already know our midgets can run chocolate factories. Now we’ll see how they do with cameras.
“Today’s geopolitical business environment requires agility, and we’re proactively addressing tariff concerns by moving most of our US-bound camera production out of China,” Brian McGee, GoPro’s chief financial officer, said in a statement. “We believe this diversified approach to production can benefit our business regardless of tariff implications.”
GoPro will continue to make cameras for China in China, as well as ones that are destined for other countries. The company’s overall performance the last few years has been buoyed by expanding sales outside of the US and Europe, as it’s seen increased market share in countries like Japan, South Korea, and others in the Asia Pacific region.
In a September interview with CNN, CEO Nick Woodman said he was “actively looking” to move some manufacturing outside the US, and claimed that dealing with the trade war as “a catalyst to get us thinking about our business in new ways.” He also said that the simplicity of GoPro’s product lineup, which currently consists of just three action cameras and one 360-degree camera for semi-pros, might not be as challenging as it will be for some other companies with more diverse offerings. The company also owns its production equipment, which GoPro says should help keep the cost of such a move low.
All these changes are a direct result of Trump’s trade policies. Can anyone really claim that protectionism doesn’t work after seeing all these corporations react like this?
Even if Trump’s agenda is stymied on every other front, his legacy on the trade front will ensure that America becomes an industrial powerhouse once again.
There’s no going back to economic globalism after everyone has witnessed how effective these trade tariffs are. The cat is out of the bag, and Jewish “free trade” is done for.
