Donald Trump vows to stop outsourcing, if re-elected US President

Washington, July 9 (IANS): Former American President Donald Trump has promised to end outsourcing if re-elected, which should sound alarm bells across India's multi-billion-dollar outsourcing industry whose largest customer is the US,

"Stop outsourcing, and turn the United States into a manufacturing superpower," said Trump’s 2024 Republican Party Platform released ahead of the party convention next week to anoint him as the party nominee for the White House, in his third run.

The platform is a list of 20 promises that articulate Trump’s "vision to Make America Great Again in a way that is concise and digestible for every voter", said Trump Campaign Senior Advisors Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles.

"While Joe Biden and Democrats argue about who will be at the top of their ticket and have implemented policies that have raised prices on everyday families, opened the floodgates to migrant crime via wide-open borders, shackled American energy with red tape forced by Washington bureaucrats, and sewn chaos across the world through weak foreign policy, President Trump will Make America Great Again through these America First principles."

The platform was a mix of the party’s conservative agenda and populist measures. They included promises to "seal the border", conduct the largest ever deportation programme, “prevent World War Three”, tax cuts for workers, end inflation, build the strongest military in the world, bring peace to Europe and West Asia, and retain the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

The Indian government and businesses will be alarmed by the promise to end outsourcing, which will bring back memories of a slew of measures announced in Trump's first term to curb outsourcing and targeting of Indian companies that dominated the outsourcing industry in the US. The administration had targeted the H-1B visa programme that American companies use to make up for the shortage of manpower available locally for high-speciality jobs.

The US accounts for an estimated 62 per cent of the business that the Indian outsourcing industry gets worldwide. US companies that have outsourced to Indian companies include giants like Ford Motors, Cisco, American Express (Amex), General Electrics and Microsoft. It’s not unusual for the US President to rail against outsourcing and offshoring as vast swatches of the country were wiped clean of manufacturing jobs that were shipped abroad to low-wage countries in a globalised economy.

President Joe Biden called for an Offshoring Tax Penalty in his platform for the 2020 election and former President Barack Obama called frequently and urgently for US companies to bring back outsourced jobs threatening them with tax disincentives.

    Good decision ? This globalization only for elite and communist control of the whole world, converting it into a Single State. This outsourcing, illegal immigration and refugees non stop global wars to destabilize first the western countries and rest of the world. They use these illegals and refugees, wars to destablize US economy first then rest of the world. Finally bring their so called pandemic, after pandemic, injections for it and depopulate drastically worldwide! That's why so many heart attacks, brain clots, turbo cancers worldwide. These greedy globalist elite are giving reason of joblessness due to AI and Robotics taking over normal jobs and so called man made climate crisis using weather modifying HAARP machines, for eugenics elite only 500 million population in the world. Klaus Schwab already said 'You all own nothing and you will be happy' by, in and through his WEF/ UN/ WHO Agenda 2030.

    Outsourcing has increased the rate of corruption. Pettha Gobernment should not encourage outsourcing instead appoint them permanently.

    Fair enough, While Donald Trump wants to create jobs for Americans, our government imports everything from China, thus denying much needed jobs for Indians. That's why we have 'chaddi gangs and thotte gangs' here!!!

    It's a matter of cost & high efficiency & advanced technology that forces other countries to run to China; just see their vice like grip on advanced chip technology and APIs required for the pharmaceutical industry!!

    Why not? So many westerns are jobless who is very good at managing customer service jobs and many non technical jobs.. it is a high time for every country to think for its citizens wellbeing firsts and any other excess work outsourcing is just good. I see so much poverty in the west and homelessness. Politicians are the reason of poverty and disasters for many nations
