When he was president, Barack Obama oversaw a terrible economy. Actually, he was the cause of the terrible economy, with his job killing programs, especially manufacturing jobs, that he said were gone and never coming back.
During the campaign, Trump said he could and would bring those jobs back. In the 22 months he has been president, he has managed to create an average of nearly 1,000 manufacturing jobs every day. 434,000 jobs in manufacturing to be exact. Obama mocked Trump during the campaign, saying:
“When somebody says like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back. Well, how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do? There’s uh-uh no answer to it. He just says. “I’m going to negotiate a better deal. Well, how? 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.”
CNS News reported:
Manufacturing jobs in the United States increased by 32,000 in October and have now increased by 434,000 during the presidency of Donald Trump, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
In December 2016, the month before Trump was inaugurated, there were 12,351,000 manufacturing jobs in the United States. In October 2018, there were 12,785,000—amounting to a gain of 434,000 over the past 22 months.
In the month of October the experts predicted that 190,000 new jobs would be created. The economy actually grew by 250,000 jobs of which 32,000 were in manufacturing. Maybe what Obama meant was that he couldn’t create new manufacturing jobs, but that’s understandable since he spent so much time entertaining Beyonce and Jay Z and interviewing members of the Muslim Brotherhood to work in the White House.
