Under Barack Obama, manufacturing jobs disappeared into thin air. But Donald Trump’s controversial move saved an entire town.
Under Obama, the American economy suffered.
American workers lost their jobs left and right, especially those employed in the manufacturing and production industry.
No surprise, though; this is what happens when liberals rule.
Thanks to the toxic policies of Democrats (starting with Bill Clinton) we’ve seen jobs evaporate at a wild pace; in the last two decades, once reliable industries have all but dried up.
And unfortunately, this downward trend only got worse under Obama, who rolled over for every globalist who said boo. The result was a country-wide decline in productivity.
But with Donald Trump – a successful businessman – in the White House, things have been changing. Rapidly.
And for one small town in Illinois, they’ve changed so much that Trump has essentially saved the town’s life.
“American workers in an Illinois steel town are finally seeing relief after years of job-killing free trade thanks to President Trump’s 25 percent tariff on imported steel.
In 2015, the Illinois steel town saw 2,000 layoffs of American steel workers from the city’s local steel plant.
Now, because of Trump’s tariffs on steel, the Granite City steel plant is rehiring 800 steel workers—about half of which will be those who were laid off in 2015 and the other half will be new hires.
Since 2001, free trade with China has cost millions of Americans their jobs. Between 2001 and 2015, about 3.4 million U.S. jobs were lost due to the country’s trade deficit with China, as Breitbart News reported.
Meanwhile, since the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) took effect in the 1990s, at least one million net U.S. jobs have been lost because of the free trade deal.
Between 2000 and 2014, there have been about five million manufacturing jobs lost across the country as trade deficits continue soaring.”
Most of the insiders who oppose Trump do so because of his America First stance. They are in the pocket of globalists who want to plunder American wealth.
These big companies moved jobs overseas, payed workers pennies, then dumped their inferior products in American markets. They’ve robbed us coming AND going.
Even conservatives were in on this scheme. They helped push for “free trade” deals that hurt American businesses and workers, because they’d rather make a quick buck than see America thrive.
But thanks to the current President, everything is changing for the better.
Plus, with news that he’s setting his sights on European trade imbalances, expect to see bigger gains in the near future. More jobs and opportunity are coming our way!
