  1. Remember some of those worker voted for 45, and 45 said let the auto manufacturers fail and they shouldn't have been given a bailout.

  2. All this happened because the republicans took office, Anyone who voted for 🤡trump or didn’t vote at all, let me ask…..

    Jobs are moving
    Gun violence is killing our children

    Mika, i like the rooster 🐓graphic on your coffee cup/mug. You really do like chickens. 👍☺🐓.

  4. Joe will you please explain to the American people what in involved for doing away with a constitution amendment or to alter it. Maybe these , willfully, ignorant voter's will shut about " take our guns ".

  5. The auto workers of the future…will be made out of metal and wires. Who knows? Maybe they'll even talk…the same way that my '84 Nissan Maxima used to.

  6. CON MAN ARE GOOD IN ONLY 1 THING : Con the Public in to what ever they want . Remember the old Western Days : Ladies and Gentlemen , I got here in my Wagon the CURE for all your PAIN . It doesnt matter WHO it is , TRUMP , OBAMA , CLINTON , BUSH , they are all LIARS AND BULLSHITTERS and you know why : NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE FOR — THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA — The USS United States is sinking = fast 😲😲😲😲😲😲😲😲

  7. This is no different the the pre-midterms middle class tax break.
    An outright lie by the least credible man (let alone president) in America.

  8. Mr. Senator, what are you doing in the White House? Did you bother to come up with a plan or were you too busy figuring out your COLA raise? How did you get on MSNBC in the morning? I think you woke up in your chair, walked out and got invited on the spot.

  9. The reason you don't see any sort of policy coming out of the Administration is that Ross, Mnuchin, Chao, Pruitt , Zinke , Perdue, Carson, De Vos, et als are too busy lining their pockets and the bank accounts of their friends. Those are full time jobs. And the Trump family, well, its hereditary.

  10. American should have work with China instead of spreading the communist propaganda, sadly the western media only portrait China as a scary country and most of them never set foot on After reform China.

  11. But but but, the economy is booming.
    Oh well. I guess he needs to put kids in cages, give thousands of border children to traffickers and give our tax money to terrorist to have the leftist media love him.
    Ya know, like Obama did. With those great border policies that were in place when that evil Trumpy Wumpy was in put in office.

    The left is dead.
    In the heart
    And in the head

  12. Gee, Joe. Why would a capitalistic corporation lay people off in spite of billions in profits and subsidies from the government? That's what the GOP has always stood for, as Joe well knows. He carries water for corporations day in and day out.

  13. The only job Trump is trying to save is his own.He lied to these workers like he lied to everyone else.So if you voted for him who's the fool now.

  14. The ONLY thing Dumpster does is try to make money for Dumpster
    When he chokes to death on a Mcnugget the world will be a better place

  15. All of Trump's and Ivanka's  high priced  retail stuff was made in China or Bangladesh or wherever. Plus who in hades bankrupts there own casinos? Now  that's tricky! One of his promises was to reduce the national debt which he's escalated to a trillion. Guess we get to find out how he bankrupted his casinos'

  16. The first I seen Gary peters the invisible Democrack senator .since he's been elected! What a do nothing looser ! Big money Bernstein got him elected !not the people of Michigan! We don't have representation here in Michigan !

  17. WHAT??????? Daddy's lil Millionaire Con man turned Hollywood Reality Star didn't Deliver on ANY of his Campaign Rally Promises while talking to Poor working Class folks cheering his name??? SURELY Trump wouldn't just tell people EXACTLY what they wanted to hear to keep the Cheers going would he??? HhhmmM

  18. Hey Chevy workers! Look on the Bright side, Atleast your not a Farmer in this Country Losing your Farms you've had in your family for generations, because Trump promised EASY trade Wars with CHina. Yall tired of WINNING???

  19. tRump did not do anything to save OHIO car manufacturing jobs either. In fact, run down the list of states with car manufacturing plants and I am sure that the same applies.

    tRump is not the president of the common man, he represents the rich but mostly he represents himself.

  20. None of them conservative folks like to talk about trump adding a trillion dollars to the deficit yet at the same time having benefits slashed and big corporations not having to pay taxes…talk about voting against your interests.

  21. With the Mexican Economy doing so well with Trumps help, That wall might not be such a bad idea, soon that caravan will be heading south. lol

  22. 1) manufacturing in Mexico keeps costs down and that’s a win for American consumers.
    2) manufacturing in Mexico keeps illegals out of the US because the Mexican people will have jobs
    3) American labor costs are grossly expensive. Why should American consumers be forced to subsidize these overpaid American workers?

  23. Israel is priority to Trump Administration since day one.

    Israel Government is in full swing in WH with countless Zionists staff members.

  24. — > There's never been an initiative by Trump or the GOP to save U.S. industry. The Republican financial policy has destroyed or driven domestic U.S. industry out of the country with trickle-down-economics, deregulation, corporate mergers, tax cuts for U.S. corporations abroad, and off-shore tax shelters. Trump's trade wars are not going to benefit anyone but corporations who receive tax cuts and business subsidies.
    … “The Domestic Production Activity Deduction (DPAD) is [also] eliminated in the new tax law. This deduction was very beneficial to small businesses that were doing domestic production,”

    Google:Take It Or Leave It: How The New Tax Plan Impacts Small Businesses (forbes, Mar 24, 2018)

    — > Trickle-down-economics is not an honest platform. Tax cuts don't create jobs. Trump's idea of "bringing manufacturing home is to bring foreign multi-national corporations like LG and Samsung here.

  25. Lies Michigan has lot's of jobs. That is a lie he has helped . Did Obama do anything NO. Michiganders love our president. Keep spreading fake news.

  26. When I hear Trump voters say they elected him because he is a business man..I do not think they realize that he has only done because for himself and not them. And still has bankrupted so many. Trump is not an intelligent businessman, he is a scam artist.

  27. Trump is fighting for Americans jobs.

  28. Why didn’t Senator Peter get behind PresidentTrump in renegotiating the bad trade deal hie party’s president signed NAFTA? You know the bad trade deal that sent millions of good paying union jobs to. Mexico. Peters could have asked President Trump to stop all imports of trucks made in Mexico. But he didn’t because he is a political hack that could care less about the working people of Michigan.

  29. Communist Unions are destroying American manufacturing, not Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump is the chosen one. Chosen by God to make America great again by making America the homeland for the superior white race.

    MAGA 2020

  30. Throughout my television viewing day, I tune to CNBC and Varney
    & Co. on the Fox Business Network, over the years have grown to hold
    certain financial analysts in high regard, today one of them appeared on Fox
    with a head full of hair dye, in my eyes his views have now become tainted with
    appearance marketing, I now hold his financial views  guarded and suspicious no longer to be trusted,
    as he has now entered into the whelm of the phoney…

  31. MAGA 2020!…………..

    Morons Are Going Away! 2020! Get out and register to vote! Don’t wait until the last minute. The GOP is going to pull every stunt in their playbook to suppress votes. If there is an issue with your eligibility to vote, you want to take care of it now, not last minute!

  32. Trump is a cancer! A gangrene that cannot be healed! His supporters will finally realized it when they are strickened with it. It will be too late!

  33. Well. The tax plans were to make the company exes. much more wealthy. NOT to encourage them to be nice and hire more people and/or raise those employees pay. Duh!!! Wake up people. Every company that received that huge tax cut did the same thing. . .What fools the American public are, its proven time and time again.

  34. Oil at $100 per barrel? Attack on Saudi refineries could shake oil market further
    The drone strike on key Saudi oil facilities could stoke already-flaring tensions in the Middle East, driving crude prices higher amid growing fears of supply shortages, market and industry experts believe.

  35. There’s nothing made in America any more. It seems that other countries are winning on the war on jobs.and this country is losing that is really sad

  36. Trump is creating jobs. Trump would never interfere in business and employee relationships. Do you ignorant socialists understand the government's role. Create the best circumstances for business to thrive. Not force business to pay to much for workers or force workers to work in bad conditions. Mind your business. GM made bad decisions to take factories over seas Trump did everything thing including warn them not to. The workers will side with Trump.

  37. We bailed GM out in 2008 during the great recession, this is how GM pays American tax payers back by closing plants and moving its production to Mexico and China. 😤

  38. iam a 30 yr auto worker out of Detroit,and the democrats killed auto,steel rubberjobs by the millions with there big nafta trade deal wich was the biggest swindle ever on American workers.i voted for trump and will vote for him again all democrats do is lie.

  39. Trump tried to get Mary Barra to work for US, not china & mexico. Profits before country is Wall Street TRAITORS mantra. ..SAD
