So can you address why people should believe that Trump cares about jobs when he outsourced all of his from his own company to CHINA. You know that country that he constantly rants about beating us...
Since the beginning of 2000, the U.S. economy has lost 5 million manufacturing jobs. A study published last year by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that between 2 million and 2.4 million jobs were lost to competition from China from 1999 to 2011.
Announcing his presidential bid June 16, Trump declared: “I’ll bring back our jobs from China, from Mexico, from Japan, from so many places. I’ll bring back our jobs, and I’ll bring back our money.”
Trump, author of “The Art of the Deal,” says he could have protected American jobs by negotiating smarter trade agreements with U.S. competitors. “When was the last time anybody saw us beating, let’s say, China in a trade deal?” Trump said in June. “They kill us. I beat China all the time. All the time.”
Currently, several of those factors favor the United States over China. The fracking boom has cut energy costs for U.S.-based factories. Chinese wages have soared, while American wages have been flat. In parts of America, land is cheaper than in China.
So some American companies already are bringing jobs back, and some Chinese companies are investing in plants in America. Last year, for example, Chinese glassmaker Fuyao Glass Industry Group Co. announced plans to take over an abandoned GM plant in Moraine, Ohio, near Dayton, and create 800 jobs
Trump declared: “I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created. I tell you that.”
Economists say he wouldn’t stand a chance: Trump’s boundless self-confidence is no match for the global economic forces that took those jobs away.

Sure. Rationalize it however you wish. I'm not really talking about the phrases themselves. I'm talking about how easily people are falling for the message without a second glance.
The people falling for Trump are the Right Wing equivalent of those that were dumb enough to fall for Obama's Hope and Change.
Maybe all those Americans trust Trump to not have as much tee time as the last guy, who hid on the golf course. Hillary got a big trust issue going on at all times also. Why is it so hard to believe a majority of people would place Trump in the WH instead of some political establishment figure?
