Donald Trump Saves American Jobs
Probably the deciding factor of the 2016 Presidential election was not Pepe cartoons or clever memes, but economic nationalism. Hillary wanted to continue with globalism. Hillary's basic attitude was that if you lost your job due to out-sourcing, that was too bad. You were expected to retrain and find something else. Of course, it was not exactly clear what the "something else" was. Not all people can be government employees.
Donald Trump was the candidate that said he would keep American jobs in America. And he has delivered on this promise even before taking office. Based on Trump's negotiations, Carrier has decided to keep over 1,000 jobs in America.
Yeah, Obama and other globalists mock this as just a drop in a bucket. But what they don't see are the jobs that were scheduled to be outsourced this year that might be put on hold. I am sure many corporations are now reevaluating their outsourcing plans based on a Trump presidency. The risk of punishing tariffs could force many corporations to take a "wait and see" attitude before they send more jobs overseas. This alone could have save thousands of jobs.
