IMPORT TAX/JOBS: "But what really is happening is the word is now out that when you want to move your plant to Mexico or some other place and you want to fire all of your workers from Michigan and Ohio and all these places that I won, for good reason, not going to happen that way anymore. You want to move your plant, and you think, as an example, you’re going to to build that plant in Mexico. And you’re going to make your air conditioners or your cars or whatever you're making, and you're going to sell them through a — what will be a very, very strong border — not a weak border like it is now. We don’t even have a border. It’s an open sieve. But you're going to sell through a very strong border — not going to happen. You're going to pay a very large border tax."
