President Donald Trump committed to reviving the American industry during his 2016 presidential campaign, promising that he’d bring back jobs that the country lost due to unfair trade deals. He kept this promise.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Obama’s economy produced less than 100,000 manufacturing jobs across the nation during his last two years in office.
Since the Trump Administration’s red-tape–cutting policies and the tax cut and reform law passed in December 2017, manufacturers added 467,000 jobs, more than six times the 73,000 manufacturing jobs added in Obama’s last two years.
Trump’s first two years, BLS data shows that more than two manufacturing jobs were added for every one job added in government at the federal, state, and local levels.
Since President Trump took office in January 2017, employment in manufacturing has increased by 3.7 percent. Over the same period during the last two years under President Obama, manufacturing payrolls grew by only 0.6 percent.
So much of Trump’s manufacturing renaissance has occurred in the Rust Belt of Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
Pennsylvania has also experienced much of the manufacturing boom under Trump. Under Obama, the Keystone State, a big blue-collar bastion, lost more than 45,000 manufacturing jobs. During the early years of Trump’s presidency, Pennsylvania gained roughly 23,000 manufacturing jobs.
Trump made promises and kept them. Some material is taken from a Breitbart article.
