( - Manufacturing jobs in the United States increased by 36,000 last month, climbing from 12,677,000 in May to 12,713,000 in June, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In December 2016, the month before President Donald Trump took office, there were 12,351,000 manufacturing jobs in the United States. Since then, U.S. manufacturing jobs have increased by 362,000.

“Manufacturing added 36,000 jobs in June,” said the BLS summary of the employment situation for the month. “Durable goods manufacturing accounted for nearly all of the increase, including job gains in fabricated metal products (+7,000), computer and electronic products (+5,000), and primary metals (+3,000). Motor vehicles and parts also added jobs over the month (+12,000), after declining by 8,000 in May. Over the past year, manufacturing has added 285,000 jobs”

Holy Moly Batman....

If my memory is correct, one month under BHO he had 2000 or 2200 "created or saved" that is 40 jobs per State, I can name 40 cities in MI.

I am dusting off cobwebs here, again IMMIC during the Reagan years he had one month that was something like 440,000 jobs created and our population was a lot less.

My guess is within a year PDJT approaches this or breaks through the 440k ceiling.

And all the self-proclaimed “experts” who said those jobs were never coming back are now saying Trump is going to destroy the economy with tariffs.

Have the “experts” been right about anything in the last 10 years?

Quiz Time! What famous Kenyan spoke the following profound words in June 2016 at Carrier Corp. in Indiana?
“When somebody says like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back. Well how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do? There’s no answer to it. He just says, ‘I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well how? How exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer,”
The Kenyan person, one of the smartest people to have ever walked planet earth, spoke those deeply profound words just TWO YEARS AGO!
