Donald Trump Suggests Leaving the Country to Find Work

Print comment Post Comments

"I saw the other day, a Lear jet -- the wings are made in Mexico, other parts are made in Canada. Everything's made everywhere else, but they're not made in the United States. Lear jet -- that's like apple pie. It's very, very sad."

So sayeth Donald Trump, who posted a YouTube video this afternoon bringing his thoughts on the US economy to the American people.

At the 0:51 mark, Trump drops his answer on a reeling public:

"I hate to say this, but sometimes you have to go where the action is. So, maybe you have to go to a country that's stealing all our jobs. The sad part is, they won't give you jobs because you're an American."

But, but...what about all the talk about Dwayne Wade mulling over a $2 million-a-month offer from the Guangsha Zhejian?

Or the reports of Kobe Bryant considering a move to Besiktas of the Turkish League (not that Turkey has been siphoning off jobs from the US, but...)

And what of the NBA's lone Jewish-American player, Jordan Farmar, who has signed with Maccabi Tel Aviv "for the duration of the work stoppage"?

As's Mark Stein reported the other day, FIBA, the international basketball federation, announced that "any contracted NBA player who wants to go abroad during the lockout has to make a signed declaration to return to the NBA as soon as the lockout ends."

"Yet if Chinese clubs are ordered by government officials to avoid signing anyone from the NBA who could be summoned back to the States at any time," Stein continues, "they realistically won’t be able to land a single NBAer of substance for the start of their season in January."

However, Jordan Farmar may have an easier go of things, as Haaretz says he is "eligible to be listed as a naturalized Israeli outside the limited quota of foreign players."

And Deron Williams has inked a deal with the Turkish team courting Bryant.

Is there work overseas? Seems so. But China still won't take all the exports we'd like, even if they are seven feet tall.
