I think MAGA should be reworded as “MAKE AMERICANS GREAT AGAIN” as opposed to “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”.
Yes… there is a big overlap
But America’s greatness is often measured by business success. And business success can increase with practices that are not in AMERICAN’S best interests. For example … outsourcing to other countries can cut labor costs for various services and products. The company does great but the Americans who are displaced…not so much. There are other examples too.
Now… I haven’t thoroughly weighed pros and cons of the two sayings and I can’t put up a strong defense of my opinion. But I thought it might be an interesting discussion topic considering that we will hopefully have a MAGA government again soon (led by any MAGA friendly POTUS and legislature)
Americans might not be displaced if taxes on businesses weren’t so high. Businesses may close off opportunities in one state, transferring them instead over a state line, where corporate taxes are less, for example, from Connecticut to Massachusetts.
On February 1, 2021, Twitter stock closed at 52.66. When Trump was banned almost a month earlier on January 8, Twitter stock closed at 51.48. So in the three weeks after Trump was banned, the stock price actually rose.
Admitting that isn’t even a commendation for Trump. This was the amazing thing about the prog insistence that Trump was irrelevant. There were likely more real and fake journalists and pundits and professionals of all ilks who tweeted their hate for Trump. And they had followers who had followers …
CNN, Stephen Colbert, and many others basically made a living writing and talking about Trump, I just don’t think all of those people left Twitter when Trump was banned. Twitter’s Q1 2021 letter to shareholders says:
Average monetizable DAU (mDAU) reached 199 million, up 20% year over year and up 7 million sequentially, driven by ongoing product improvements and global conversation around current events.
