Donald Trump is a specialist at telling people what they want to hear. Manufacturing jobs are going to com back. Coal mining jobs are going to come back.
No, they’re not! We live in a global economy. Manufacturing chases cheap labor. Coal is dirty and digging it out of the ground is more expensive than other energy sources.
Sure. If you’re a coal miner or an out of work assembly line worker, you want to believe him. But the math doesn’t work!
