'He pulled the wool right over our eyes and he’s still doing it till this day,” says 58-year-old Susan Cropper, who worked at a Carrier plant in Huntington, Indiana, for 31 years before the plant closed and she was laid off along with over 700 employees.

“I gave the best years of my life to that corporation that threw me out like I was a rag doll,” Cropper adds. “Carrier was rewarded with more government contracts, tax breaks, and the executives get to keep their lifestyle and line their pockets. It’s been a really unfair process.”

And I have no doubt she will vote for her Fuhrer again.

U.S. companies sent thousands of jobs overseas in his first year as president. And many of the companies responsible for offshoring jobs received huge government contracts. Never before in U.S. history have federal contractors sent so many jobs overseas. Here are the contractors that are offshoring the most jobs under Donald Trump including the parent company of Carrier..

Offshoring by taxpayer-funded corporations underTrump is on track to be three times greater than under the Obama and Bush administrations. Overall, more than 133,000 Americans have received pink slips since Trump took office. President Trump has the power to stop giving taxpayer dollars to companies that outsource jobs. However, even though he's signed more than 100 executive orders and memoranda, he has yet to sign a single one that delivers on his promise to "create more jobs" by stopping offshoring.

Russian steel has been pouring into this country since March 2017, and God knows what else that we don't know about.

We're even importing Russian asbestos that literally has trump's picture on the bales. You can't even make this stuff up.

Over the last few years, GM has created or shifted production to Mexico, including the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain SUVs and Chevrolet Silverado pickups, said UAW President Gary Jones.

"It is time for Americans to stand up for what we know is right for America. We must build where we sell," Jones told members last month. "It is time to say, 'No,' to corporate greed and 'No,' to exploiting cheap labor in a downward spiral for wages here and abroad."

Trump's signature achievement for his first two years in office has not been bringing back the millions of good jobs that were outsourced but rather his corporate tax cuts and his tax cuts for the wealthy, unpaid for by any sustained robust economic growth, as promised, but financed instead by "borrowing money" from the fed in lieu of issuing debt-free money and adding more debt and deficits to come on Trump's tenure thereby further aggravating, not relieving the colossal income and wealth inequality in the United States for many more generations of American workers - #GoodbyeMiddleClass.
