President Trump ripped his predecessor in touting his outstanding economic growth.
President Trump: When I came into office 1.5 million fewer prime age Americans were working than 8 years before. We had lost almost 200,000 manufacturing jobs under the previous administration. And, you all know, they said you have to lose manufacturing jobs it will get worse and worse. Manufacturing jobs are obsolete – no they’re not obsolete. They’re the greatest jobs we have. More than 10 million additional Americans had been added to food stamps. But we’ve turned it all around. Once again we are the economic envy of the entire world.
President Trump went on to say his administration has already created 400,000 additional manufacturing jobs.
Democrats have no answer to this.
