Well I guess it’s unusual to thank the 45th President, given his excruciating ineptitude and absolute lack of moral compass, but I feel that in this situation I must.
Because due to his “Putting America First” approach, our very own Treasurer has determined that when it comes to future trade deals we need to adopt this very same approach and Put Australia First as our new policy when it comes to trade deals.
“Australia is a trading nation and an Australia first policy does embrace trade and foreign investment and all of these things, so our economic interests are very much aligned with that approach” said Mr. Morrison.
Personally, I’m a little bit surprised that putting Australia first wasn’t the over-arching objective for any trade deals before, but judging by the evidence of what has happened to our car industry as the perfect example, it is abundantly clear that previous trade deals have been obviously not undertaken with this guiding principle in mind.
So there you have it. It’s taken a dumbass Yank to help our Treasurer to come to the realization that when you do deals with other parties, it is your job as the Australian government, to try to get the best deal for our country.
Words escape me.
