President Trump let Barrack Obama know he found the magic wand when last year numbers of manufacturing jobs created was released.
According to the Daily Caller, The manufacturing industry saw an increase of 284,000 new jobs in 2018 — the biggest annual job gain since 1997. There was an increase of 207,000 manufacturing jobs in 2017.
Former President Obama mocked then candidate Trump when he promised to bring back manufacturing jobs.
President Trump responded to the numbers on Twitter,
Last year was the best year for American Manufacturing job growth since 1997, or 21 years. The previous administration said manufacturing will not come back to the U.S., “you would need a magic wand.” I guess I found the MAGIC WAND – and it is only getting better!
