Patrick Courrielche: The phrase free trade has such a liberating sound to it. It conjures up a vision of liberty and freedom. Americans think of it as being synonymous with capitalism – a system that is thought to have brought so much wealth to our nation. But you may be surprised to learn that free trade as we know it today was not a principle coveted by the men and women that made America great in the first place. In fact, quite the opposite.

Curtis Ellis: Free trade was first developed by the British Empire  

Patrick Courrielche: That’s Curtis Ellis, senior policy advisor with America First, an independent non-profit organization dedicated to promoting policies that put America first. Curtis was a senior policy advisor with the Donald J. Trump for President campaign. In other words – he’s an expert on the policies that got Trump elected.

Curtis Ellis: and Abraham Lincoln and his economic team which of course remember Abraham Lincoln was the first Republican president. They were they were staunchly opposed to free trade.

Patrick Courrielche: As baseball became our country’s national pastime, President Lincoln was rejecting the British concept of free trade, and instead embarked on a mission to grow and protect American manufacturing. Under their policies, the United States would go on to become the world’s industrial powerhouse. But then a new concept crept into the minds of our leaders – forever changing our economy.
