    Donald Trump made many campaign promises about creating blue collar jobs, by various means. i.e. renegotiating trade deals, doing away with government regulations, tariffs on imports etc. As an Independent, I'm content wait a year to see if this will actually happen, but I have to say, it's not looking promising. Most of these jobs are at the mercy of market forces, it's doubtful any gerrymandering by a sitting President can alter them. Does anyone here really think Trump will deliver on putting these unemployed steel and coal workers back to work in their chosen fields?

    You don't sound very content to wait and see.

    You might consider reading the links and drawing your own conclusion, and if I may suggest, you don't know much about me, or my state of "contentment."

    Well, there is supposedly around 1.2 trillion left in the Social Security Trust Fund. I'm sure the Dump would give you at least $50.00 out of that when he and the Republicans steal the rest of the money in there.
