Yes and real wages have been falling and the wealth gap between the top 10% and the rest of the country has been getting wider as economic mobility has almost come to a halt. Trump took away the income of 800,000 people with this last round of insanity and used taxpayer money to support agribusiness while ignoring the farm workers and support services when his very stupid trade war started to kick in. 

 

The man really is a moron.

And the vast majority of replacement jobs are in the SERVICE sector (you wnat fries with that?).  That's the reason we have low unemployment and stagnant real wages. It's also the reason the GOPerLords have told their base to hate SEIU and fight to abolish the minimum wage.

Doesn't show how many... it's a chart show the "share' of manufacturing jobs compared to all other. Nice try... but irrelevant. Your Messiah said manufacturing jobs are not coming back... nay nay. 

 

Then there is real data... look. 

 

Why would anyone want less jobs? That's un-American

The Trump Manufacturing Jobs Boom: 10 Times Obama's Over 21 Months

https://www.forbes.com/sites/chuckdevore/2018/10/16/the-trump-manufacturing-jobs-boom-10-times-obama...

  Job gains for the manufacturing industry in the last 12 months are the most since 1995

  • Over the past year through July, U.S. manufacturing added 327,000 jobs, the most of any 12-month period since April 1995, when the figure added a healthy 345,000 positions.
  • U.S. manufacturers produced about $6 trillion in gross output in 2017, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
  • Still, the sector represented 11.6 percent of U.S. GDP in 2017, down from 12.3 percent in 2011 and 28.1 percent in 1953.

800,000 people are out of work because of Trump's temper tantrum over wall funding. He told Republicans in Congress what he would sign then threw them all under the bus when Hannity criticized him.  Today, he called back 50,000 employees to work without pay to cover his Snowflake butt. I believe forcing someone to work without pay is called slavery. 

 

Tell me this moron is the champion of the working classes. You are going to have to find one hell of a meme to pull that one off.

Unfortunetly, they did so a long time ago .....  Younger voters these days have a very important voting duty placed upon them which does not happen like this very often.  Nealry 2/3rd's of all of Washington DC's polititions will be going out of office one way or another over the course of these next 4 to 10 years due to advanced age, health concerns or etc... that will happen ...  It is going to be mainly up to our offspring whom will be replacing us in the voting arena to cast their votes to replace all of them going out of official office.  Hopefully, they will make their choices wisely....  If they do not then they will be the ones ending up having to deal with or rather put up with whomever they elect into official office now over the course of these next 40 to 60 years as we have had to do..  Vote wisely children - it does matter very much

Democrats Have Abandoned Working people

From Bill Clinton to Obama power has shifted from people to corporations... enter Donald Trump. It was the opening the republican party hoped for. One party's trash is another party's treasure, the American basket of deplorables, kicked to the curb. 

Even the ole socialist, Bernie Sanders gained traction and went on to win 22 states and 47% of the vote in primaries. Sanders major theme was that the country’s political and economic system was rigged in favor of big corporations, Wall Street and the very wealthy. 

 

So the polar opposites with the same populist bend, Don and Bern ran agaisnt the big money politics and the big broken political system. The power structure of America wrote off Sanders as an aberration, and didn’t take Trump seriously. I wonder what changed within the politcal structure? especially the democrat party. 

 

Now working Americans (deplorables) have rebelled by supporting someone who wants to fortify America against foreigners as well as foreign-made goods.  Most Americans couldn’t care less about our "trading partners"  because for years they have received few of its benefits, while bearing most of its burdens, You know...  in the forms of lost jobs and lower wages.

The left is STILL shocked by the outcome of the 2016 election because it has cut itself off from the lives of most working Americans. Perhaps it also doesn’t wish to understand, like so many here who post their diatribe,  because that would mean acknowledging its role in enabling the presidency of Donald Trump. 

 Yes... manufacturing jobs are back... big time. Middle America owes President Trump a Great Big Thank You!
