Some questions regarding ‘trade possibilities’ with China

March 8, 2019
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

To the editor:

In response to comments made by Nita Whaley, part of the Cape Coral Economic Development Office, concerning trade with our "sister" city in China.

Miss Whaley - you proposed the city of Cape Coral possibly enter into a new trade agreement with China to purchase aluminum. To that end, I have just three questions;

1) Why are you not pursuing American manufactured aluminum products as the first choice?

2) Are you somehow completely unaware of the huge annual trade "imbalance" with Red China, to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars annually? and;

3) Have you not taken the time to consider how our importation of aluminum, despite the US having an abundant domestic supply, will have an effect on our economy, prosperity, and American jobs?

I have a suggestion for you.

It would be far more productive to focus your energies on Chinese tourism, investment in Florida, and selling our locally made products to China, with, among other things, Florida water. Florida is one of the few areas of the country with an abundant surplus of fresh water.

China is towing huge pontoons of fresh water that they currently get from the Great Lakes in large quantity across the Pacific, as their environmental damage is quite severe now, and their clean water is in short supply.

One final question, that I am pretty sure that I already know the answer to;

Who paid the travel expenses for the Chinese delegation to visit Cape Coral for an economic forum?

America first!
