President Trump Saves The Last Tank Factory In The Western Hemisphere ~ VIDEO

Lima, Ohio – -(AmmoLand.com)- In 2012, the Obama Administration sought to close one of America’s premier defense facilities as part of mandated budget sequestration. Congressional Republicans managed to stop them, but the number of employees at the plant still plummeted to just 75.

“Enter President Trump,” writes White House Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro in The New York Times, “with a far different view of the role of a strong military in both defending our homeland and revitalizing our manufacturing base.”

Visiting the plant in Lima, Ohio, this afternoon, President Trump told its workers what they mean to our country.

“It is here in Lima, right here, that American greatness is forged with American hands, with American heart, and with American pride,” the President said. He also announced the addition of 400 new jobs at the manufacturing facility.

America’s resurgence over the past two years is captured neatly by two numbers.

  • The first is economic growth, which just cleared 3 percent for the first time in more than a decade.
  • The second is Gallup polling that reveals 6 in 10 Americans are optimistic that today’s children will live better lives than their parents—up from just 44 percent in 2011.

The American dream is back because President Trump understands what so many experts do not: that restoring American greatness is bigger than any one policy. While Washington spent years tinkering with more regulations and more bureaucracy, towns across our heartland withered. Regaining their trust meant renewing their faith in our shared destiny as citizens, including our economy, our military, and our people.

Today, there are plenty of reasons for that trust. Manufacturing jobs are being created at six times the pace of the previous administration’s final two years. Blue-collar workers are on track to receive almost $2,500 more in annual wages. Our military members have received their largest pay raise in nearly a decade, and more than $700 billion is being invested this year alone to rebuild the strongest military on earth.

“We don’t know what challenges will come, what dangers we must face, or what opportunities we must seize,” President Trump told factory workers in Ohio today. “But we know that America will always be ready because of you.”

President Trump is making America secure by bringing back manufacturing.

Throughout recorded history, countries disarmed in times of peace only to get caught short when hostilities broke out again. There is no reason to believe that armed conflict has come to an end, we should all be prepared for it.

Beyond the economic impact, Trump has won over some Democrats’ votes..
Not only the military manufacturing, but also the Automotive sectors,
… and the recent news of declaring Israel as a Sovereign State… will take back some Democratic Jewish votes for 2020

Still got mine! But it’s okay to pound down some Oxy or Perks? Come on now. Tanks are like “Clean Coal” waste of money. This is almost 2020. We collect our rock throwers (guns) and the advancement of our military is far beyond tanks and rocks. Tanks will be used on American soil! They won’t work in North Korea or Russia or China. So why do we need? They are awesome for sure. Love me some tanks but….. We need better body armor! Better long range rifles. Portable balistic shields to better protect the men and women running the ground… Read more »

He might mean government sponsored jobs and industry (a kind of Socialism), which tank manufacturing is somewhat of a grey area. On the one hand, we need advanced military equipment and government is likely the best way to do it. On the other hand, our government spends a ton of money making tanks and other equipment that just rots in fields for the sole purpose of maintaining the military manufacturing industries. Or maybe he doesn’t. Either way, the government sponsored industry brand of Socialism seems to be gaining popularity today and not many people are pointing out how Socialism is… Read more »
