This page is dedicated to tracking that number of jobs that Donald Trump has saved, helped create or brought back to America due to his business friendly policies and negotiations.
Donald Trump is committed to negotiating with companies who wish to seek cheaper labor in places like Mexico or China and avoid the high corporate tax rates of United States (3rd highest in the world). Since the year 2000 it is estimated that America has lost 5 million manufacturing jobs in addition to many major companies moving their headquarters overseas. Many businesses are also finding it difficult to operate in a country that produces so many new regulations each year, and they in turn must hire additional legal representation to ensure they are in compliance, thus increasing their operating costs.
When Donald Trump first announced his intention to bring back manufacturing and middle class jobs to the United States, the mainstream media released a slew of articles claiming that “those jobs aren’t coming back” and the working class is going to be replaced by robots. So far, the media is being proven wrong once again, as their articles are looking more and more like “fake news” with each American job Donald Trump is saving.
