America Wins! Donald Trump Just Saved 1,000 American Jobs

In a surprising break from the typical and all-too-common “say anything but do nothing” pattern of recent American presidents, President-Elect Donald J Trump just proved that he meant exactly what he promised on the campaign trail – and then actually delivered it.
