Just ask around Obama has really turned this country around. Once again, Trump is right about the economy. Go figure someone with billions of dollars in working assets knows what's going on in the economy.

That's what happens if you aren't in a union. If you don't see how much better the economy is since Obama took over 7 years ago you were probably too young to remember what Bush and the republicans did to the economy and jobs with allowing companies to outsource everything overseas.

If you think that sort of thing has only been happening during Obama's reign, then you haven't been paying attention for the last 6 decades.
And if you think that Trump has all the answers that the other previous 10 or so presidents haven't, then you really have been drinking the Trump-Is-Gawd koolaid.
Why dont you go to those unemployed bethlem steel plant workers, those retired workers who pensions are now NON EXISTENT, and those workers the OP posted report loosing their jobs and tell them that under obama the economy is doing great...

I have a friend that sells steel coils. I think he is called a broker but I call him a middle man.
Anyways, he says Chinese steel is killing the market and is usually junk. He sold 20% more product last year but made less money because of the low prices.
China has a huge advantage and it's not just labor prices. A company over there does not buy the raw materials like the most other countries. The government owns the natural resources and basically gives it to manufacturers.
They also don't have a crap ton of regulations to deal with such as insurance, social security, osha, etc etc.
It's hard to compete with someone that's playing by a different set of rules.
