93,000 jobs were outsourced during Trump’s first year. This is according to American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations. 93,000 jobs is actually the largest number in recent years. Over the last five years, the average of number of American jobs lost to foreign competitors was 87,500. TheHill
Every Trumpkin should feel betrayed when reading that first paragraph. Trump built his entire campaign on his broken promise to keep jobs in America. People who really believed these promises deserve to be heart broken.
Trump campaigned on keeping jobs in America, except he doesn’t even hire Americans at his resorts. Plus, his daughter manufactures her clothing products in China. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to predict that Trump would not live up to this particular promise. Those precious ‘Make America Great Again’ hats are made in China! Reuters
This disgusting fact can not be argued. 93,000 were certified by the Department of Labor as outsourced in Trump’s first year. During that year, as thousands of Americans lost their jobs, Trump continues to peddle his lies. Last October, Trump announced this great idea to punish companies that outsource globally. If you are to take him at his word, this means that he would enforce legislation that would cost him and his daughter a lot of money.
It’s both a carrot and a stick,” Trump said. “It is an incentive to stay. But it is perhaps even more so—if you leave, it’s going to be very tough for you to think that you’re going to be able to sell your product back into our country.” Fortune
Of course, Trump never specified what these rewards and punishments would be. In fact, he hasn’t even mentioned this idea that would prevent outsourcing. If I had to put money on it, I’d say his idea to prevent outsourcing was just some more of Trump’s smoke and mirrors. He would never pass legislation that would financially hurt him, however by reaffirming his commitment to keep jobs in America sounds really good. Every Trumpkin this side of the Mason Dixon Line believed Trump wanted to protect their jobs. However, this news proves that he never cared about that. Betrayal is a bitter drink.
