Donald Trump not even President yet and the jobs are already returning! Obama likes to brag about creating over 90% of the jobs but doesn’t tell you that they were part-time or contract work.
Under Trump, we’re getting permanent jobs!
Here’s GM’s big announcement
General Motors is set to announce a massive billion-dollar boost to investment in the US that will create more than 1,000 new jobs.
The car giant is gearing up to pump $1 billion into several factories across the country, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Company insiders told the newspaper the move is designed to reaffirm its commitment to manufacturing in the US, and that an official announcement could come as early as Tuesday.
A spokesman would not confirm the reports, and it is not yet known which factories or other areas of the company will be on the receiving end of the new investment.
The move would come just after president-elect Donald Trump tried to ramp up pressure on the manufacturer in a press conference last week.
Trump spoke glowingly about new plans from Ford and Fiat that will see more than 2,000 jobs created in the US, before he singled out GM.
‘I hope that General Motors will be following. And I think they will be,’ he said at the time.
However, GM denied any future changes will be in response to Trump’s bluster, saying investments of this magnitude are talked about and planned for ‘some period of time’.
GM general counsel Craig Glidden spoke to the Journal about the reported investment, and took the chance to spruik the car company’s performance in recent years – which included adding more than 25,000 total jobs across the US and 6,000 in manufacturing.
About 60 per cent of those 25,000 jobs had been shifted to the US from overseas.
