Watch Barack Hussein mock Donald Trump, who says he is going to save the jobs at Carrier in Indianapolis, and then does it before he is even in office.
Barack Hussein has done nothing but run his mouth for eight years and damage America as much as he could. He will go down as undoubtedly the very worst president in the history of the United States.
Somewhere Jimmy Carter is smiling.
Transcript from PBS Newshour….
GWEN IFILL: Thank you, Mr. President. Thank you, Mr. Kercher.
As you may have been — may have noticed, while in this election, Donald Trump came to Indiana and talked a lot about what happened with the Carrier Corporation and shipping the jobs out of state. Here’s someone who worked for Carrier and he has a question for you.
ERIC COTTONHAM, Carrier Employee: How are you doing, Mr. President?
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: How are you?
ERIC COTTONHAM: My name is Eric Cottonham and I’m representing the Steelworkers Union, Local 1999. And I’m trying to find out, what do we have left far us — all of our jobs are leaving Indianapolis. I see here you’re doing a lot of things, but in Indianapolis, there’s nothing there for us. I mean, what’s next? I mean, what can we look forward to in the future as far as jobs, employment, whatever? Because all of our jobs has left or in the process of leaving, sir.
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Well, in fact, we’ve seen more manufacturing jobs created since I’ve been president than anytime since the 1990s. That’s a fact. And you know, if you look at just the auto industry as an example, they’ve had record sales and they’ve hired back more people over the last five years than they have for a very long, long time.
We actually make more stuff, have a bigger manufacturing base today than we’ve had in most of our history. The problems have been — part of the problems have had to do with jobs going overseas and this is one of the reasons why I’ve been trying to negotiate trade deals to raise wages and environmental standards in other countries, so that they’re not undercutting us.
But frankly, part of it has had to do with automation. You go into an auto factory today that used to have 10,000 people and now they’ve got 1,000 people making the same number of cars or more. And — so what that means is even though we’re making the same amount of stuff in our manufacturing sector, we’re employing fewer people.
Now, the good news is that there are entire new industries that are starting to pop up and you’re actually seeing some manufacturers coming back to the United States because they’re starting to realize, “You know what? Energy prices are lower here, workers are better here, this is our biggest market. And so even though we off-shored and went someplace else before, now it turns out we’re better off going ahead and manufacturing here.”
But for those folks who have lost their job right now because a plant went down the Mexico, that isn’t going to make you feel better. And so what we have to do is to make sure that folks are trained for the jobs that are coming in now because some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back, and when somebody says, like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back, well how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do? Continue Reading
