Rex Nutting: Donald Trump puts his businesses, not America, first

Donald Trump has been shaming and bullying American companies that locate their facilities in other countries. But Trump’s own companies do exactly the same thing.

From an economic point of view, there’s no difference between United Technologies’ UTX, -0.54% Carrier heating-and-cooling division locating a manufacturing plant in Mexico and the Trump Organization’s development of a golf course in Scotland.

Trump (still) owns more than a hundred companies that do business in dozens of countries. He’s no different than any other multinational company that scours the global market for opportunities to make money, without regard to national pride or borders on a map.
