Donald Trump is looking to paint the White House. He asks Chinese contractors how much they would charge. They say 3 million. He asks European contractors how much they would charge. They say 7 million. He asks Ecuadorian contractors how much they would charge. They say 10 million.
Trump goes back to the Chinese and asks “why 3 million?” The Chinese say “1 million for the paint, 1 million for the labor, and 1 million profit.”
He then goes to the Europeans and asks “why 7 million?” The Europeans reply “2 million for the best quality paint, 3 million for the specialized labor, and 2 million profit”
Trump finally goes to the Ecuadorians and asks “why 10 million?” The Ecuadorians reply, “Mr. Trump, let’s sit down and have a talk about sincerity. 3 million for you, 4 million for us, and with the last 3 million we hire the damn Chinese.
