    Default The Magic Wand Economy.

    President Obama reacted to candidate Trumps pledge to bring manufacturing jobs back to the US with:

    “Well, how exactly are you going to do that? What exactly are you going to do? There’s no answer to it," Obama said.
    "He just says, 'Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.' Well, what, how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer.”

    President Obama attempted to bring those jobs back and mostly failed as the records indicate:
    Manufacturing employment was 12,258,000 in October 2016, according to the most recent estimates from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s down 303,000 from the number employed in January 2009, the same month that Obama was sworn in as president.

    In fact, the CEO of Apple told him manufacturing jobs were not coming back when Obama made a personal plea to him:

    But as Steve Jobs of Apple spoke, Obama interrupted with an inquiry of his own: What would it take to make iPhones in the United States? Not long ago, Apple boasted that its products were made in America. Today, few are. Almost all of the 70 million iPhones, 30 million iPads and 59 million other products Apple sold last year were manufactured overseas.

    Why can’t that work come home? Obama asked.

    Jobs’ reply was unambiguous. “Those jobs aren’t coming back,” he said, according to another dinner guest.

    The other 'experts' President Obama relied on all sand the same chorus:
    KRUGMAN: No matter what Trump does, manufacturing jobs are not coming back to the US
    http://www.businessinsider.com/krugm...-trump-2016-11
    Manufacturing Jobs Aren't Coming Back, No Matter Who's President
    https://www.npr.org/sections/money/2...whos-president

    A plea to presidential candidates: Stop talking about bringing manufacturing jobs back from China. In fact, talk a lot less about manufacturing, period.

    But along came President Trump and his magic wand:
    196,000 Manufacturing Jobs Added in 2017

    And, to add to the embarrassment:
    Apple creates 2,000 jobs shifting production back to US

    Of course, progressives are never embarrassed. They move from one failed prediction to the next.

    With more and more automation on the horizon, it makes this gain all the more impressive.

    Automation also makes the current discussion about immigration VERY important.

    Just more of the same trend. Look at the graph.

    In 2014 about 200k manufacturing jobs added. I'm sure you were ecstatic.

    Obama's comments are to be expected from a fool who's only real experience was in being a community agitator.

    He knows nothing about business and it showed for 8 painfully long years.

    There were multiple years where Obama created 200k manufacturing jobs. It's funny though when you slap Trumps name on the number it becomes sooooo amazing. Hahaha

    Obama created squat. He was nothing but a hindrance to business with his Draconian regulations he implemented with his EO's.

    Most of the jobs he added were government jobs. Any business gains were in spite of him rather than because of him.

    As i said before he was a fool whose only expertise was community agitating. He excelled at that. Look at his agitating "sucesses" in Ferguson and Baltimore.

    Then what did Trump do?

    This is why I am laughing at you guys.

    You take pretty much the same jobs numbers under both President's and one is bad and the other is good.

    Have some consistency.

    The economy is on fire under Trump, yet he nor anyone in the Government, created a single job.

    The private sector creates jobs.

    The economy is on fire in anticipation of Trump's pro business agenda. He has opened oil exploration, is eliminating hundreds of burdensome regulations and he has followed through with his tax cuts.

    My prediction is that we will see 3+% GDP for the next few quarters. Something Obama could only have dreamed about.
    Hillary 2020!
