Pat Buchanan: Economic Globalization Is the 'Sellout of the American Worker'

Economic globalization and the decline of U.S. manufacturing that began in the 1990s represents "the sellout of the American worker" — and is fueling Donald Trump's popularity, veteran political commentator Patrick Buchanan tells Newsmax TV.

In an interview Friday with "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth, the former adviser to three presidents, author of "The Greatest Comeback: How Richard Nixon Rose from Defeat to Create the New Majority,"and member of "The McLaughlin Group" says the impact of jobs moving out of the United States first hit him in a 1992 visit to a shoe factory in New Hampshire.

"They were handing out Christmas turkeys to the employees and I went up to shake hands with them and I found out they had all been laid off that day," he recalled. "One guy about my age looked in my eyes and just said 'Save our jobs.' It went right through me.

"And then you look at what happened in the first decade of this century — 55,000 American factories disappeared and 6 million manufacturing jobs. What had begun seriously back in the '90s had reached the dimensions today that Donald Trump's campaign is riding on."

Buchanan argues globalization "puts the transnational corporations, many of them American… at war with their workers in first world countries, especially the United States.

"The interests of a big transnational company … is to produce where it can do it cheapest — in China, Bangladesh, Costa Rica, wherever — bring these products back in the United States, free of charge, if it gets that kind of trade deal, put in Walmart and increase profits," he added. "That is the sellout of the American worker.

"Economic patriotism dies in this new globalist world," he added.

But the impact reaches into society itself, he asserts.

"I think you're seeing the decline and fall of Western civilization before our eyes," he said. "You take a look at all the Western empires are gone and now these subject peoples or their descendants are now crossing the Mediterranean to invade and repopulate other countries. I think that's history unfolding."
