Trump Honors Companies for Making Their Products in the US With the ‘Best Workers Anywhere in the World’

President Donald Trump invited manufacturers from each of the 50 states to join him at the White House to celebrate American made products.

During his campaign, President Trump vowed to bring back manufacturing jobs to the United States. At that time, then-President Barack Obama claimed that Trump would need a “magic wand” to bring back manufacturing jobs as the U.S. economy shifted.

Watch Obama’s comments:

Under Trump, however, manufacturing jobs have seen a major uptick. The current administration added 499,000 new manufacturing jobs in its first 30 months in office compared to the 185,000 manufacturing jobs added in Obama’s last 30 months in office — a difference of 314,000.

The president mentioned this growth during his address from the Rose Garden on Monday afternoon.

Watch Trump’s comments:

“While those here today create many different goods, you’re also devoted to one of the greatest missions on Earth: making the best products from the best materials with the best workers anywhere in the world. Right here in the United States of America. Right? Made in America, made in the U.S.A., call it either way. But that’s what we’re doing. And, you know, when I took office I was told by the previous administration that manufacturing jobs would be disappearing. There was no way. They said you’d need a miracle. Right? You’d need a miracle. Well, we have a miracle because we’re up 600,000 manufacturing jobs since the election.”

Trump claimed the current economic boom is an “extraordinary resurgence of American manufacturing.”

The president highlighted that, since he took office, Americans have seen record low unemployment levels for women, African Americans, and Hispanic Americans, among other milestones.

He credited his tough trade policy for the resurgence of manufacturing jobs within the United States.

“We’re standing up for the American worker like our country has never stood up for the worker before,” Trump said.

Remember the old ads ‘Look for the Union Label’? Look for the Made in the USA label. I have often seen made in the USA with assembled ‘elsewhere’ on it.

How many Americans will actually hold those jobs? I am guessing that the jobs are and will be filled by illegals and visa card holders, not Americans.

Obviously it takes an American President to turn the Country around from the destructive agenda of an illegitimate Marxist POTUS. THIS President, his policies and the American workers are the primary ingredients in Making America Great NOW as compared to the repeated, abysmal failures and ineptitude of the previous non-Administration.
