Under President Trump, Manufacturing Jobs Have Biggest Gains In 20 Years


Goodbye, Obama economy. Hello, American economy.

The manufacturing industry posted net job gains of 284,000 over 2018, capping its best calendar year since 1997.

A priority for President Donald Trump, manufacturing saw marked hiring in December with an additional 32,000 jobs. Most of the gains occurred in blue-collar durable goods manufacturing, with growth in fabricated metals and computer and electronic products, the Labor Department said in its release. The definition of durable goods is items with a life expectancy of three years or more, such as automobiles, furniture and machinery.

Democrats had been telling us for ages that manufacturing was doomed. “Those jobs aren’t coming back.”

They’re coming back. All it took was standing up to China and standing up for workers, instead of selling them out.
