Study says Alabama is one of the most affected states by Trump’s trade war with Mexico

From Trussville Tribune staff reports

With President Donald Trump’s plans for financing the soon-to-be-constructed border wall with Mexico sparking concerns about a possible trade battle between our two nations, the personal-finance website WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2017’s States Most Affected by Trade War with Mexico.

In order to gauge the impact of the economic fallout with Mexico on individual states, WalletHub’s analysts compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across five key metrics. The data set ranges from “exports to Mexico as a share of state GDP” to “share of jobs supported by trade with Mexico.”

Trade War with Mexico’s Effect on Alabama (1=Most Affected; 25=Avg.):

  • 11th – Exports to Mexico as % of Total State Exports
  • 7th – Exports to Mexico as % of State GDP
  • 10th – Imports from Mexico as % of Total State Imports
  • 12th – Imports from Mexico as % of State GDP
  • 23rd – % of Jobs Supported by Trade with Mexico

    Doing the right thing is not always easy but rewarding in the end result. Adjustments can and will be made!

  2. Nick Smith says:

    Vice did a video a while back about how the ban on immigrants hurt Alabamas farming in a huge way. Now we get to feel it but double.

  3. you forgot to put illegal before immigrant and we are not in a trade war with Mexico. I think he should just scrap the wall plan and start a program to deport the illegals that are here.

  4. Frank Tapley says:

    Alabamians will survive this but how many haven’t survived the drugs, criminals, and drunk uninsured vehicle drivers the illegals represent in our population. There is never a complete fix but you follow the Laws on the books and do your best otherwise we are our own enemy.

    Maybe the meth business will go down.

  6. Well yeah, what’s taco soup without avocados and Corona!

  7. Scott White says:

    We are not in a trade war. Good grief the liberals are even running amuck in the Trussville Tribune.
