I searched, but in vain, for anywhere in the article that discussed "bringing back American jobs from abroad." American companies (and their employees) continue to benefit from "America First" policies. Sorry about that.
No need to say "sorry" Jim as you would not find reference to it in that article.
I am simultaneously blessed and cursed with a long memory rather than a short attention span. I still remember things that Trump said during his election campaign and after.
You will find reference to it in this one instead:
When President Trump sat down with business leaders at the White House, he had a pointed message for them; bring back American manufacturing jobs, or risk a tax on imports if you don't. Manufacturing employment has been dropping in the U.S. for nearly four decades.
Employment may well have grown in your country over the past 2 years but NOT in manufacturing.
Not an exclusive US phenomenon but part of a global trend in ALL (high cost) Western countries along with some that technically are not Western but still high cost. I believe that even in the PRC's Shenzhen special economic zone - the country's powerhouse of manufacturing for the overseas global market; factories have been closing because costs have risen to the point where it is unprofitable for manufacturers to keep their enterprises going any longer.
Not your fault that Trump frequently talks through his backside
; so no need to apologize.
(Trump is not the first macroeconomic illiterate to be elected to the Oval Office and is unlikely to be the last.)
