This is the PRE ELECTION SPEECH you will hear.They will say "We will make America Great Again , we will keep the jobs here, I will call CEOs to open factories here to keep jobs here in American blah blah blah."

POST ELECTION SPEECH is slightly different after they have your vote, "There are always winners and losers in free markets. The President isn't a dictator. There are only so many concessions that can be made between government and private business. I'd prefer to see businesses fail, file for bankruptcy or relocate than have an overbearing federal government dictating what a private business should do."

In other words "too bad so sad"

Now with the new election coming up be prepared for the BS Promises to start flying

Now the CBoS want Trump to be a dictator.

glalt, you have been correct many times, but never more correct than now. You were right. It doesn't matter what Trump does or doesn't do, the Cry Babies will call for the opposite.

Trump's policies and programs have created an economy where if someone needs a job, there's one out there -- and chances are, the job may be better than the one had previously. Only weak wimps would wallow around in their own puke and not be a man and go get the job to support their families.

"Promises to save US manufacturing and prevent American jobs moving abroad were a key part of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. But since Trump took office in January 2017, nearly 200,000 jobs have been moved overseas, based on Trade Adjustment Assistance certified petitions."

Astana that is MORE than 200,000 jobs gone. If each job represented $70,000 that is $14,000,000,000 gone that would have supported Doctors, Dentists, Teachers, Grocery clerks, Taxi companies, well, really a small city oh and offer taxes for the Kings coffers

" go get the job to support their families" If you like Bombay and enjoy curry over Gumbo and Chicken Fried Steak

But they are gone until you will here "Step right up and let me tell you how things will be (after you elect me)"

its OK Doodoo as apparently the bus runs everyday but not for...

For some of the tens of thousands of workers affected by plant closures and job offshoring across the United States, Trump’s 2016 promises to save their jobs and stop their plants from closing have left a sense of betrayal.

“I believed it. I thought he was going to save some jobs. He pulled the wool right over our eyes and he’s still doing it till this day,” says 58-year-old Susan Cropper, who worked at a Carrier plant in Huntington, Indiana, for 31 years before the plant closed and she was laid off along with over 700 employees in March last year.

After being laid off, it took her eight months to find another job, but it pays much less than what she was making at Carrier. “Not only did I lose my job, now I’m not going to work long enough to build another retirement somewhere else,” she says.

TAA - Trade Adjustment Assistance

Another example of someone not realizing what is included in their source that assists workers who may have been displaced by jobs that are moved overseas. The same data that counts displaced workers, also assists them.

Workers may file a petition with the US Department of Labor TAA in order to obtain benefits for their displacement. The workers then apply to the American Job Center for the benefits.

So besides other federal programs available to help the temporarily unemployed, Trade Adjustment Assistance is also available from the US Department of Labor.

Some more CBoS clutching their pearls with phony outrage to GET TRUMP BECAUSE TRUMP.

The number of jobs gained just in June 2019 (224,000) was more than all of the jobs lost overseas (200,000) in the last 2+ years.

During a presidential campaign stop in Burlington, Iowa, Trump declared: “I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created.” But critics claim that when it came to stepping up to prevent a Siemens turbine plant from closing in Burlington in December, Trump was nowhere to be found.

“I sent a letter to the White House and got a response that this is a state or local matter, so they brushed us off,” says 64-year-old Robert Morrison, one of 125 workers who were laid off when the Burlington plant closed. “We felt abandoned and betrayed not only by Siemens, but by our elected officials, from Trump down.”

According to Morrison, many workers either moved away or took jobs with pay cuts and long commutes. He was forced to retire early.

“This was my job of 31 years. I loved that job,” he says. “I was hoping my son or grandson and nephews could work there some day. We made a fantastic product used around the world. Now the turbines are going to be made in India and Czech Republic.”

A Siemens spokesperson said the plant closed because of market decline but opened in India and the Czech Republic regardless.

What a neat little trick. Post a link and then post 2 or 3 paragraphs from the same link just to fill up post responses that have nothing to do with other the posts that followed.

That at least gives people who didn't read the article the illusion that you have an educated response.

Not a trick just debunking what you wrote with the opinion of Americans affected by Trump's campaign promises that turn out to be false, and why not use different parts of the same article its much better than cobbling together material just to suit your agenda.

"A Siemens spokesperson said the plant closed because of market decline but opened in India and the Czech Republic regardless."

Now there is a statement The greatest increase in construction requiring Siemens products is in the USA, LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas), Oil production (as the US is now the most productive in the World) The Czech Republic are rebuilding roads infrastructure where Gas Turbines are not needed In India Solar power does not need Turbines
It comes down to $$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Monthly pay in Czech is $1431
Monthly pay in Banglore India is $1458
Monthly pay in Burlington Iowa $ 4575

So Siemens could hire almost 4 people as to one in the USA

It is not decline it is DOLLARS

That's the point its all about money not people or their jobs in places like Burlington where a campaign promises were made but not honored, hence 64-year-old Robert Morrison's comment, one of 125 workers who were laid off when the Burlington plant closed. “We felt abandoned and betrayed not only by Siemens, but by our elected officials, from Trump down.”

Trump's cuts in White House staffing has saved $20 million thus far in taxpayer revenue and is on pace to reach a $22 million in savings compared to the prior administration.

The First Lady cut her staff in half compared to the previous occupant.

Additionally, Trump donates his entire salary every quarter to either charity or some government agency.

The thought had crossed my mind too that the Russians might be behind the Darroch leak. Given what followed the leak, they will have noticed the opportunity for future mischief.

I see Johnson has been widely condemned by MPs. I don't think he's up to the job of being PM let alone a cabinet minister.

Cheerleaders for Failure receiving more bad news with another monthly report on trade and inflation.

First, it's necessary to recount all of the failed predictions. Kinda reminds me of all the phony mmcc alarmism predictions that have failed.

NBC News:
“Trump’s trade war may soon hit consumers’ wallets and paychecks.”
Wharton Business School - University of Pennsylvania:
“Tariffs will surely lead to higher prices for imported goods and, to a lesser extent, prices for non-imported goods that use imported materials.”
CNBC:
“Tariffs are about to hit consumers, and it won’t be pretty.”
Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies:
“Trade restrictions, by their nature, result in price increases for the goods in question. If the price of steel and aluminum goes up, manufacturers will be forced to pass those costs onto American consumers.”
So what is consistent with Cheerleaders for Failure, LIBs, Believers and Democrats when their predictions fail? They double down and move their predictions further into the future. Prices have not risen as predicted. Consumers have not been hammered at the checkout counters. Many have simply argued that the prices will increase over time. It's been over a damn year since the tariffs have been in effect. With each passing month, the Cheerleaders for Failure have finally begun to get more and more quiet.

In summary, after more than a year of tariffs, consumer prices have been only barely affected. Period.

June's consumer price index rose 0.1%. Kind reminds me of the mmcc alarmism over temperature increases. Year over year, consumer prices have only risen 1.6%, which is well below the Fed's warning benchmark of 2% annual inflation; and the economy is still chugging along and still creating jobs. Included in the Fed's analysis is something called the personal consumption expenditure index. This index is about 0.5% BELOW the consumer price index.

The facts TRUMP the alarmism of the so-called experts. Pun intended.

From the very beginning -- over a year ago -- Wilbur Ross was emphatic in stating that the dire predictions would be wrong. He's still correct today.

Some of the Cry Babies wail and gnash their teeth over auto sales. Car and truck prices are up only 0.6% on average from a year ago.

Another Cry Baby claimed that technology and appliances that are mainly manufactured abroad, would be the killer for consumers. Prices of televisions, computer and many major appliances have gone DOWN. In June, television prices dropped another 2.4% marking 11 straight months of declining prices. Year over year, televisions are 20% less expensive. Computers and related technology -- including phones -- are down 5.9% year over year. Phones alone are down 14%.

Washing machine prices went up initially, but are now down 4% year over year.

China imports have only had a 2.9% effect on prices, but the items have to be purchased by consumers for them to be affected. Prices on toys from China have dropped over 7%. Sports equipment is also less. Clothing prices are down.

None of these numbers indicate that prices will remain low forever, but after a year of tariffs, consumers are not feeling pinched by any increase in prices. It is entirely possible that the tariffs are being absorbed by foreign producers and middle men. Discounting products in price or foreign currencies declining against the dollar can cause this.

STEADY WINNING.

An ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that Trump is more popular today among registered voters than he was on election day, and that is bad news for the Democrat Socialist Party.

When you consider all of the media attacks -- 90% negative, the endless witch hunts investigating people looking for crimes, the impeachment bluffs by Democrats and the obstructionists in Congress, Trump is no worse off than the day he was elected.

What should bother the Democrat Socialists even more is that the 5% jump in the poll occurred AFTER the two debates where the Democrat Socialists were trying to outdo each other in giving away the farm the store and the whole kit and [k]aboodle.

Even worse, let's look at the source of the poll: ABC/WaPo -- they hate Trump.
