    Those people are traitors who close their factories to make the public get angry at Trump. I wonder how much they're getting paid for that, but it's probably a pretty high number because they get paid in Chinese Yuan.

    Ryika-chan, are you an anime catgril secret agent who has access to information we don't? Cuz if not, then you're obviously just trying to explain away why Trump's economic policies are working as planned. But if so, what's next in Chinese President Winnie the Pooh's list of nefarious plans? Does it involve bees?

    More likely they're business execs who saw their profits vanish with the now-skyrocketing cost of imported component parts. :cry:

    I read on InfoWars that Trump is doing a good job and seriously, how could he not? There are more jobs than there have ever been, the coal industry is booming, climate change is basically over and in a few months those traitors are going to be replaced by upstanding Russian citizens. And the MSM can't do anything about it - which they know, so they have to make up these stories and collude with the Chinese Traitors because they really hate Trump and just can't accept that they're in the wrong.

    Why did you ruin my dreams, Ryika-chan? I was hoping you were a ninja anime cat girl secret agent who broke into Winnie Xi Pooh's underground house to steal his secret docs and honey. Y u do dis.

    people still buy tv's? I don't even own a TV. That could be the reason why tv manufacturer's are struggling. TV's are 20th century stuff.

    Just get a bigger monitor ;)

    I think what's really happening is that the distinction between monitors and tvs is becoming increasingly meaningless.

    It's too close to my face and I want to sit on my couch instead of a chair when I watch a show or movie.

    Well Republicans still use radios, and like dial up, and coal power is like new future tech. /s
    The point is that US manufactorers are getting it good and hard thanks to Trumps good and easy to win trade war.

    To be honest, I'm not sure this is really the best example of such a point. I'm not sure how healthy and profitable this company was anyway, given that it is was the only of its kind and it made its first TVs only in 2015.
