After reading Terry Munson's 400-word tirade against President Donald Trump, I thought I just had read a subject discussed on CNN or written in The New York Times, of the “fake news” variety.
For example, Mr. Munson wrote that The Atlantic Report states more then 100,000 jobs have been lost since October. However, the February Labor Department report stated that 28,000 manufacturing jobs have been added and U.S. construction companies hired 58,000 workers. Time said that the mining industry increased by 8000 jobs in February.
President Trump has only been in office a little more than 6 months. Those jobs lost that Mr. Munson refers to were lost under the months prior to last October - when President Barack Obama, Mr. Munson's hero, was in office.
President Trump has traveled the world over, meeting and greeting world leaders and forming new alliances, most importantly in the east; most of the countries there had turned their back sides to the United States because of Obama’s insults.
Trump is working hard to stand up to North Korea and Iran, where as the Obama crowd gave them a king’s ransom in gold while they gave the United States their middle finger and captured our Navy boats.
Mr. Munson quotes an article from The Associated Press about Verizon, which will replace 2100 jobs taken from AOL, as if it was Trump’s making. Another criticism made against Trump is his infrastructure plans. CNBC stated: “Left Wing economist Paul Krugman has pounded the table for years when Obama was in office for a Fiscal Stimulus." Many economists agreed that Obama had a relatively wimpy stimulus package at the start of his presidency but was not able to get anything going since.
