While much remains to be seen about our health care system, one thing we can definitely say is improving under President Trump’s leadership is our economy.Trump has managed to work out deals with a number of large corporations, convincing them to invest their money right here at home, boosting job creation to the highest it’s been in some time.
In fact, American hiring is now at a three-year high under the new president — news that’s much needed for many citizens across the country.
Hiring across America is at its highest levels in three years amid rising business confidence under the Trump administration, figures from the ADP Research Institute reveal.In the month of February, the number of private payrolls increased by 298,000, well above the original forecast of 187,000. January also saw levels of hiring above forecast, with a revised gain of 261,000 jobs created.
Jobs in construction also rose by 66,000, the highest in 11 years, while factories also added 32,000 new workers, the highest since 2012.

One of Donald Trump’s key campaign pledges was to bring jobs back to America, especially in rustbelt states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania, where industries have faltered and jobs have been outsourced to Mexico.Following the election, a range of companies — including Ford and Carrier Corporation — have promised to cancel overseas expansion plans, and, instead, invest in American jobs.
Technology firms such as Apple, Amazon, and Intel have all also pledged to create thousands of new jobs in America over the coming years.
Amid rising economic confidence, the Dow Jones industrial average broke record levels in January, breaking 20,000 points on its stock index.
As promised on the campaign trail, Trump is working hard to undo the economic destruction the Obama administration wrought on our great land. He’s keeping his promise to help to get the government out of the way so businesses and corporations will invest in America again.
The strategy — like our citizens — appears to be working.
