    How can Democrats call this "Obama's Economy" when Trump has already cancelled over 800 Obama regulations to create THIS economy?

    The number of U.S. jobs eliminated due to foreign competition since President Trump's election last year has largely kept pace with previous years, according to a new report.

    An analysis of Labor Department data by the labor coalition Good Jobs Nation found that more than 93,000 U.S. jobs have been eliminated since Trump's election due to foreign trade.

    That's roughly on par with the previous five years, which saw an average of 87,500 jobs per year eliminated.

    Thank you for confirming Trump has outsourced more than 5,000 more jobs than the average for the last 5 years.

    But I noticed you left out the part about the much greater increase in outsourced jobs that Tramp has direct control over, namely federal jobs!!!

    The coalition's analysis also found that the number of jobs outsourced by federal contractors has actually risen since Trump was elected. Since November 2016, some of the biggest federal contractors have offshored some 10,269 jobs, making up 11 percent of trade-related layoffs, compared to 4 percent in the previous five years.

    No idea what you are talking about Trump is opposed to outsourcing. He wants to elimlluminate the corporate tax and the trade deals that lead to such huge outsourcing. Do you understand?
