Look, economies of all countries are becoming globalized. Trying to fight it is pointless. The trend of jobs moving overseas is nothing new. Manufacturing jobs moving to China and elsewhere is one of the main reasons the American consumer has not seen big boosts in inflation in recent times.

It's either adapt or get killed later on. If you find yourself in an area of expertise that's going overseas, get cracking on finding a new career. The focus of the administration on retraining those being affected in such a way is admirable and will only make our economy stronger in the long run. Isolationism, tariffs, and protectionism will only make it more painful in the future when every other country sees the benefits of this "outsourcing" and we don't.
