TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY SOUTHERN STOCK DERAILED AMID PREZ TRUMP MEXICO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION CRACKDOWN!!!
One of the great rail companies in American history is located right here in Kansas City and is currently enduring harsh times amid President Trump's impending trade war with Mexico.
"Kansas City Southern’s business model is built on two things: economic integration between the United States and Mexico, and stability in the relationship between the two trading partners . . . (President) Trump’s election has threatened to erode both of the pillars underlying Kansas City Southern’s business. Trump has signaled his intention to tax outsourcers, to renegotiate NAFTA, and to build a massive, comprehensive wall between Mexico and the United States. Each of those policy initiatives would directly impede the current ease with which goods flow across the border."

Many ideologues and supporters of the President are willing to accept this economic hardship as a cost of doing business incurred whilst building better security for the nation and they would strangely find company among more liberal American labor advocates.
Still, many voters seem to be overlooking the very real and local economic consequences of a trade war that are much greater than simply a declining supply of burritos and pottery . . . Like it or not, nobody builds a solid portfolio on patriotism alone.
You decide . . .
