Trump’s Economy Added The Most Manufacturing Jobs in Over 20 years!
Donald Trump delivered on yet another promise he made on the campaign trail; manufacturing jobs are booming in America.
A whopping 284,000 jobs in the manufacturing sector were added in 2018, this is the best year it’s had since 1997.
Reviving manufacturing to make America great again, was one of President Trump’s key promises when he ran for office.
Many “experts” insisted that his idea to revive manufacturing was impossible because automation and globalization snuffed out factory jobs for good.
As we’ve been seeing a lot of in the Trump administration, those “experts” were wrong… again.
Some even went as far as accusing Donald Trump of trying to con Americans into thinking he was really going to bring manufacturing back when it was “impossible.”
The most well known person to attack Trump over his manufacturing promise was then-President Barack Obama.
“Well, how exactly are you going to do that? What exactly are you going to do? There’s no answer to it. He just says, ‘Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well, what, how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer,” Obama said.
Well, well, well, how do you like that magic wand of Trump’s, Obama?

Maybe Obama felt, if he couldn’t deliver on his promise of creating 1 million manufacturing jobs in his second term then there was no way Trump could deliver on his jobs promise.
The Obama administration was only able to add 549,000 manufacturing jobs over 4 years. And in his final year in office, the number of manufacturing jobs decreased.
Obama saw himself as superior to Donald Trump and didn’t think Trump was qualified enough to be the President… Turns out, Trump has done a better job on delivering on his promises than Obama ever did.
To get a better perspective, Trump’s economy added almost as many manufacturing jobs in it’s first two years as Obama’s did in his entire 4-year second term.
Economist “experts” will likely spend years trying to figure out how Donald Trump pulled off this campaign promise. MAGA!
