No, manufacturing policies and competitive necessity drive manufacturing jobs to places with cheaper labor all over the world (not just China).  They always have.  Has everything to do with money, almost nothing to do with politics.

Everyone is focused on China right now but over the years, all kinds of manufacturing have moved to Mexico, the Phillipines, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India, and Indonesia.  Intel's chip manufacturing is done in plants in Ireland, Israel, and China and assembly in Costa Rica, Malaysia and Vietnam in add to the US.  GM and Ford have manufacturing plants in Canada and Europe.

And a long time ago, the United States was the cheap labor source for things like textiles.
