Trump Score Card
JOBS : A+
As President Trump became the 45th President of the United States, the American job market saw a record high 95,102,000 Americans not in labor force. The number grew 18% since Obama first took office in 2009. So what will President Trump do to fix this?
Bringing jobs back to America was arguably the most effective of all of Donald Trump's campaign messages. This was proven by his incredibly impressive victories in the Rust Belt where he won the states of Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. The three latter states were previously dominated by the Democrat Presidents over the last 20 - 30 years. And now he is walking the walk. The number of companies announcing investment — and in many cases a return to investment — in the U.S.A. with a corresponding rush to create jobs for Americans has continued to grow.
