It’s common to point a finger at the easiest target. The staff here falls into that trap occasionally, but NAFTA isn’t responsible for the woes of the auto industry. This article points out that it may have done much to keep the US auto industry alive. The workers whose plumb high paying jobs disappeared don’t want to hear that though.
Just like they don’t want to remember the corporate welfare the federal government lavished on their employers and stock holders following the Great Recession. Just like they don’t want to own up to decades of inferior cars they produced, or the failure to adopt more fuel efficient technologies.
It’s easier to let an ignorant loudmouth like @MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain conjure a boogeyman. Of course, it doesn’t hurt if the boogeyman has darker skin than the typical blue collar working stiff.
