Letter writer notes Trump’s comments vs Koch Brothers

Share

Dear LVC Editor,

President Trump fired back at the Koch Brothers this morning with some hard hitting Tweets (see below).

 

The Koch’s, who sadly infiltrated many well-intentioned grassroots “conservative” organizations during the strong “Tea Party” movement, have pulled the wool over the eyes of too many good people.  But Trump is now helping to expose them.

 

The Koch’s spent nearly $400 million dollars to elect status-quo champion Mitt Romney, but gave NOTHING to help Trump beat Hillary.  Let that sink in…

 

Their latest beef with Trump are over his illegal immigration policies and his import tariffs.  I hear some “Libertarians” (which the Koch’s claim to be) talk about “free trade”, but when I ask them for a definition of what that means to them I rarely get an answer.  Trump is certainly for “free trade”, but he’s also for “fair trade”, which we currently don’t have.

 

Trump didn’t start a trade war.  Our trading partners did with their import tariffs on our products.  He is simply trying to level the playing field while we have the opportunity to do so (i.e. a strong economy).  God forbid the Koch Bros. lose a few bucks in the short term as Trump positions us for better future deals.

 

I suppose the Koch’s are fine with America constantly being on the losing end and are satisfied with our 10:1 trade deficit with China.  After all, they’re still making their money.  That’s what seems to matter most to them.

 

As I’ve said for years, we need to ask exactly whose prosperity their group “Americans for Prosperity” is referring to.  The answer should be clear by now.  The reason some of us were a little bit ahead of the curve on seeing right through them is because we witnessed their sleazy tactics first hand in Harrisburg when they actively lobbied against school property tax elimination, all while telling the true grassroots (who they knew were mostly supportive of the measure) that they are “neutral”.

 

Perhaps to AFP that’s “just politics”.  To me, that’s a damn lie.  Period.  It’s proof that they will do and say anything to hide their true intentions and to keep the donations flowing.  I’m glad they’re openly opposing Lou Barletta, the border wall, and virtually all things Trump.  Maybe now more people will see them for who they really are.

 

Ron Boltz,

President of the Liberty Allaince

 

P.S.  I should mention that The Reason Foundation, a Libertarian organization, supports our school property tax elimination efforts for multiple reasons, including property rights, fair taxation, school choice opportunities, and more equitable school funding.

 

President Trump’s Tweets:

 

 

 

The globalist Koch Brothers, who have become a total joke in real Republican circles, are against Strong Borders and Powerful Trade. I never sought their support because I don’t need their money or bad ideas. They love my Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judicial picks & more. I made…..

 

….them richer. Their network is highly overrated, I have beaten them at every turn. They want to protect their companies outside the U.S. from being taxed, I’m for America First & the American Worker – a puppet for no one. Two nice guys with bad ideas. Make America Great Again!”
