Trump Announces NEW JOBS During Meeting with Manufacturing CEOs – video

Published on Feb 23, 2017  –  WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is meeting at the White House with two dozen manufacturing CEOs. Trump told the executives that his policies will create millions of jobs, though he did not outline specific initiatives to drive that job growth. The president singled out Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson, saying she was working on lowering the costs of F-35 fighter jets. Referencing his campaign rival Hillary Clinton, he asked Hewson if she thought the Democrat would have asked for savings on the contracts.

    Trump Forgets his Obama Criticisms

    The new president, who attacked Obama for golfing and personal travel, spends his first month outdoing his predecessor.

    Donald Trump regularly assailed President Barack Obama for playing golf, then spent the first weekends of his own presidency doing just that.

    He attacked Obama for using Air Force One to campaign, and did it over the weekend just a month into the job.

    He mocked Obama for heading out of Washington at taxpayer expense, but appears to have no qualms about doing so himself.

    One month in, Trump is using the presidency to boost his political and personal goals — not breaking laws or ethics rules, experts say, but ignoring his past criticisms and vows.

    “Donald Trump has zero worry about contradicting himself, because he does it all day long,” said Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian who has met with Trump.

    “He figures he can get away with it because he does it all the time. There is no worry about it. He says one thing and then does another, and his supporters don’t hold it against him.” The historian added.

    The new president has taken three weekend getaways in the first month of office, spending millions of taxpayer dollars in Secret Service protection and about 25 percent of his time away from the White House.

    The Secret Service has also paid for security for expensive business trips for his sons’ business ventures to foreign countries.

    The actions seem to fly in the face of how he mocked Obama’s travel. “President Barack Obama’s vacation is costing taxpayers millions of dollars — unbelievable!” he wrote in one of many tweets criticizing Obama for taking a trip.

    Trump has headed to the golf course at least six times since he took office, one month ago, another favorite criticism against Obama. Trump mocked Obama more than two dozen times for golfing amid problems in the White House.

    …. It Must be dat Attention-Span-Thing!!
