    If he had more time he would have accomplished this but these kind of changes take time and planning.

    The aftermath of the Covid pandemic and the fact that it exposed a major flaw of relying too much on China to manufacture critical items.

    Trump would have had a lot of leverage to bring back the manufacturing of medical equipment, medicine and PPE.

    All of which were in short supply because China bought all of it up that they could.

    I can not blame them for wanting it to help their own citizens but we also need to capability to do the same.

    Trump could have pushed this with massive public support to at least bring these jobs back.

    But now that we have Biden we can kiss that opportunity good bye.

    Because as predicted it was a complete economic failure; it ended up being the equivalent of a huge tax increase on American consumers and had a negative effect on U.S. GDP. He could talk it up all he wanted with his grassroots supporters who believe whatever he tells them but he couldn't hide it from businesses that were hurt by it and that generally donate money to Republicans. The simple fact is that the U.S. would have to go through a world of hurt, including a massive wage reduction before it would ever be feasible for the manufacture of now-imported goods to return here.

    It's much easier to fail when your system at hand has not adapted to the problem already
