Perhaps, when you give us some examples to get “outraged” over. ;)

Corporations that receive USA tax deductions no matter that they are located outside the USA borders.

Are you suggesting that we freedom living Americans pass a law that takes away the freedom of corporations to conduct business in any country they choose? THAT would be un American

The important thing here is that the owners and investors all get wealthier than the rest of the world's population combined.

You should be supporting Trump. He wants American companies to keep doing business in America.

American companies are free to do business as they desire. You are advocating removing that freedom from them. So, why do you want to take that freedom away from them?

I've said nothing about "removing freedom".

Stop lying.

OK, let them keep that freedom, but corporations need to be subject to democratic oversight, and they are a menace to those democracies with sizes larger than many or most countries and 'freedom' to interfere in elections to prevent that democratic oversight.

Agreed. Regulation is a definite necessity.

Well yeah, you kind of did. You stated, and I quote: "You should be supporting Trump. He wants American companies to keep doing business in America". That statement implies that you want their legal ability to operate outside of the US to be removed.

I implied no such thing, and Trump has NEVER said any such thing.

You really do need to stop lying.

I can't read the date on the paper, but that will answer your question as to when.

He certainly hasn't led by example, tho'. Least of all to Ivanka, who got patents in China to make her classless junk.

Personally, I believe American companies should be HQ'd in America. I have no problem if they have divisions that lie closer to where they manufacture or gather supplies, but all accounting and taxation should flow through their US HQ and be subject to applicable law.

Not true.

Trump induced American companies to return to the US and he also induced foreign companies to invest in the US.

I'd say that's leading by example.

No. Leading by example means doing yourself what you want others to do. Trump doesn't lead by example. He buys from the CCP.

I don't think you're mad a the right things.

We elected politicians who allow this.
Their re-election campaigns are funded by the same corporations you're apparently outraged at.

They'll continue to do things that those companies want until they don't get funded by them.

IMO you should be mad at the systems which allow this, and secondly at the companies who paid money to lobby for laws that made said system a reality.

Edit: Being mad at humans for being easily misled is like being mad at the ocean for being wet and salty.
Maybe if we had some really high end education system that ensured everyone was trained at spotting the myriad ways people can be misled, it wouldn't be an issue.
But probably not.

Well than let me ask you, how do you suppose we're going to force American companies from setting up shop in foreign countries without legislation which forces them to do so. If you'd just think your thoughts through to their logical conclusions we wouldn't have an issue.

Trump already showed us we don't have to "force" anything. We just have to make it worth their while.

But then, some people...you, apparently...think force is the answer. I don't.

Trump policies drove many companies to start manufacturing outside of the USA
