Donald Trump’s business acumen has been on display in recent weeks, as he’s been saving jobs left and right for average, blue-collar and working Americans.
Take Carrier in Indiana, for instance, when the company agreed to keep 1,100 or so high-paying jobs in state, rather than move to Mexico, after a simple meeting or two with Trump and Mike Pence, the incoming vice president. Then there’s U.S. Steel. And SoftBank. And IBM.
Under President Obama, the jobs were going. With president-elect Trump, the jobs are staying.
And the spirit of hope is catching across America.
“Optimism among small business owners is surging since the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th president of the United States of America, a new survey reveals,” Breitbart reported. “The November Index of Small Business Optimism from the National Federation of Independent Business shows small businesses have gained confidence with the expectation of better conditions under the new Trump administration.”
It’s common sense, really. Obama plus Democratic control equals regulatory burdens on business. Trump plus a Republican House and Senate equals more freedom, more free market.
“What a difference a day makes,” said Juanita Duggan, president and CEO of NFIB, in Breitbart. “Before election day, small business owners’ optimism was flat. And after election day, it soared.”
Under Obama’s restrictive reign, small businesses felt the constant crunch. Unrealistic ideas from the previous administration led to serious economic issues, especially in regards to small business and now, thankfully, Trump is here.
This country was built on small businesses just starting out. Obama and his cronies never understood this but brighter times are a-comin’!
