Not going to happen.

We absolutely must level the playing field between large international corporations and small, local businesses. Before a democrat president said this, no one on the right would have argued otherwise.
I'm not against leveling that field. So long as it doesn't create an even more unlevel field between our companies and their foreign competitors.

And I think free trade with slave states is a bad idea. We should restrict free trade to only democratic countries with solid records on human rights. That should help protect against our current race to the bottom. Although it's probably too little too late at this point.
