Put down the shovel, President Trump, and pick up a machete

Editors, Washington Examiner

Trump has a fondness for business-government deals, as he showed with his subsidy package for Carrier in Indiana. The instinct to help employers may be laudable, but Trump’s duty is not to Carrier, Boeing, or Foxconn. It's to all workers. Subsidies cannot stimulate the whole economy. It takes a rising economic tide to lift all boats. The best way to ensure economic boom times is for Trump to put down the shovel and pick up the machete needed to hack away regulations and taxes that choke investment.
