Jerry Bowyer: Democrats Are Free-Traders Now

Trump has performed something of a miracle: he’s transformed the Democrats into free traders.

It wasn’t always like this: in fact, for years the Democrats were the party of protectionism. But now, solely because Trump is engaged in a trade war with China, several Democratic candidates for president have become crusaders for free trade.

In the last Democratic debate, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Beto O’Rourke advocated for the trade policies that used to be the domain of the Republican party. Harris said it bluntly: I’m “not a protectionist.”

Let’s be clear: the only reason this is happening is because of the Trump administration’s attitude towards China. A few years ago, the Democratic party was clearly moving towards protectionism.

This is simply the latest stage in Trump derangement syndrome: Trump is evil, therefore everything he does must be opposed.

So: Even if only for a day, Democrats are free-traders now.

But I’m not buying it.

Michael Medved: Joe Biden: Combining Radical Substance with Moderate Style?


In campaigning for president, Joe Biden faces a difficult dilemma: if he moves left to placate his party’s increasingly socialistic base, he’ll lose the moderate support he needs to challenge Donald Trump. But if he runs as a compromising centrist, enraged party progressives will block his nomination.

The problem is that satisfying progressives requires such radical positions—like racial reparations, forgiving student loans, and banning private health insurance—that middle-of-the-road voters won’t be reassured by an easy-going style. If the election becomes a referendum on a stridently leftist Democratic platform, Republicans should be able to build a big majority in opposition.
