At a speech in Youngstown Ohio last night, Donald Trump talked about the loss of manufacturing jobs in the state and told his audience:
"They’re all coming back. They’re all coming back. They’re coming back. Don’t move. Don’t sell your house."
Actually, they were coming back (at least some of them) before President Trump took office, but the state is again losing manufacturing jobs.
