3. Could be true.

A few thousand may be rehired or hired outright in those industries. But you'll have to try to balance that with 10's of thousands losing their jobs elsewhere.

4. Correct. His mind-fucked base aren't

capable of contemplating that balance however. We just need to make sure that everyone else eligible to vote does ó get it AND vote.

5. Empty promises like those coal miner jobs...

I expect to see a special about these so-called steel mill and aluminum jobs coming back on Vice real soon. This chart is very telling...

6. A company had been working on starting a Severstal plant rolling mill (down since March 2009)

in Mingo Junction Ohio for the last couple years, that started before Trump. That company ran out of money and sold the plant to
an Indian company. The Indian company claims they will spend $500 million to start the electric arc furnace (down since March 2009) and will build a another electric arc furnace. I don't think it will happen, it's a money pit. Maybe 500 jobs.

8. Steel production is highly automated now.

If it comes back, it will not create a lot of jobs.

10. In the USA? Not with Donny's help!

You need to understand that EVERYTHING he says is BS. Then you would know not to ask that question. 😁
