For decades we watched as American manufacturing jobs fled our shores. These crucial wealth-creating jobs peaked at 19 million in 1979. There are only 12 million today despite significant population growth since 1979.
Cynics on the Democrat left have cheered our economic decline. They said that we could never become a manufacturing giant again, that America was finished, that our best days were behind us, that we would all end up working at McDonald’s.
Nikitas3.com said many times that this was false, that we could have all of the prosperity that we want because America is a great and free nation. And now president Trump is proving it. The October job numbers are good and will be much stronger when the Trump tax and economic plans are passed. CNBC reported:
The U.S. economy added 261,000 jobs in October and the unemployment rate was 4.1 percent as labor conditions returned to normal following the storm-weakened September. … In addition to the October growth, an initially reported decline of 33,000 for September was revised up to 18,000. August’s count also was revised up from 169,000 to 208,000.
Indeed, the biggest gain in employment came from the hospitality industry, with jobs at food and drinking establishments up by 89,000, reflecting a storm-related rebound. Professional and business services contributed 50,000 to the total while manufacturing added 24,000 and health care increased by 22,000.
In all, employment in the manufacturing sector has increased by 156,000 since President Donald Trump’s election in November 2016. Trump has made blue-collar growth a priority of his economic agenda.
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported about October:
Manufacturing employment rose by 24,000 in October, with job gains in computer and electronic products (+5,000) and chemicals (+4,000). Employment in fabricated metals continued to trend up (+4,000). Manufacturing has added 156,000 jobs since a recent employment low in November 2016.
Look at those crucial manufacturing jobs, which have been disappearing for decades. Those are the best jobs. They will increase more and more as the Trump Economy becomes normalized.
Nikitas3.com predicts that president Trump will add 2-3 million manufacturing jobs by 2025 and that his economic plan will provide 10 million or more manufacturing jobs over the next 25 years.
This is happening as a major economic sector – retail jobs – is stagnating and even declining as internet giants like Amazon take over from brick-and-mortar stores.
Now look at this from Paul Bedard writing in The Washington Examiner:
America’s long national nightmare over failing to achieve the American Dream is over.
Three years after six in 10 Americans said their dream of a great life was unachievable, now 82 percent believe their either achieved the dream or are on their way.
… The results join several others pointing to a recovered economy and wealth of jobs in America.
The switch cited by Pew would appear to put an end to years of depressing polls and surveys showing that the vague American Dream was dimming.
In 2014, for example, CNN’s American Dream project said that 60 percent believed it was unattainable and even more said that their children would not live a better life than them.
And just last year, the Ripon Society said that a remarkable 70 percent of middle class voters do not believe that the next generation will do as good as they have, moving the American Dream out of reach for millions.
Wow. And the difference between 2014 and 2016, and then 2017 is president Donald Trump. He exudes optimism. Obama, on the other hand, was a dark and depressing demagogue who told us that we all were faring well in a miserable world.
If you want to see a clear example, come to left-wing Massachusetts. While Boston and its wealthy suburbs are thriving, hundreds of towns and cities all over the state are depressed and dirty and failing. But then you can drive over the border to historically conservative New Hampshire and you see a huge difference right away with prosperous, clean, thriving cities and towns.
The difference between Trump and Obama is the same. Trump, by his very nature, is giving hope to tens of millions of people, and hope is the best thing of all.
This puts the lie to the media polls saying that president Trump is unpopular. Nikitas3.com believes that Trump is 10 to 20 points more popular than those polls say, and that Americans are really being uplifted by The Man from New York.
On November 2, president Trump held a press conference at the White House with Hock Tan, CEO of Broadcom Limited. Mr. Tan is Malaysian and he studied at MIT in Boston, the world’s leading technology and engineering school.
Wikipedia reports that Broadcom is “an American designer, developer and global supplier of products based on analog and digital semiconductor technologies within four primary markets: wired infrastructure, wireless communications, enterprise storage and industrial & others.”
Broadcom employs 7,500 people in the US, and Mr. Tan now is moving the headquarters for his company to the US from Singapore, at the urging of president Trump. Mr. Tan is also doing so as he is thankful that MIT offered him a scholarship and a great education when he was young and poor. Broadcom has annual revenues of $13 billion.
In a funny moment, Mr. Tan said that his mother would be proud for him to be at the White House announcing the success of his company. President Trump leaned forward and said to Mr. Tan, and to the world, “And my mother too.”
These are the kinds of moments that are coming to define the Trump presidency. The media and university elites do not understand this. Through hard work and discipline and a sense of humor, and with bold and direct language, people like Mr. Tan and Donald Trump have risen to the top. Their very attitude is giving hope to millions of Americans.
This piggybacks on other consistently good economic news inspired by president Trump – stock market records, high consumer confidence, booming real estate sales, etc.
Recently president Trump and Wisconsin governor Scott Walker announced that Taiwan-based electronics giant Foxconn would build the world’s biggest computer components factory in Wisconsin, to employ 13,000 people. This came at the urging of president Trump and governor Walker.
Contrast that with Wisconsin in 2010 after 8 years of a corrupt Democrat governor, when the entire state was totally dispirited and saw a bleak future ahead. Governor Walker already had done a great job at reforming the economy, and the Foxconn deal was the cherry on top.
This is why president Trump is on the road to re-election, as Ronald Reagan was re-elected in 1984 by a landslide after turning around the dismal Jimmy Carter economy.
Americans are seeing a big difference in their own lives and do not trust, and even detest, the Fake News media that are trying to bring down the president.
This is leaving Obama in the dust, and Obama knows it. This is what the Democrats fear most – that their failed agenda is being exposed. This is why they want so desperately to get rid of president Trump.
