Is drumpf going to stimulate job growth or eliminate jobs? It’s getting difficult to figure out after Monday’s bull in the china shop tweet about the F-35 jet airplane.
drumpf is vowing to corral the “out of control” cost of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. But congressional Republicans and Democrats, aware of the tens of thousands of jobs the aircraft generates in 45 states, will be wary of any plans by Trump to cut the program.
A Monday morning tweet from Trump targeting the F-35 doesn’t explain exactly how he’ll save billions of dollars in military purchases while also honoring a campaign vow to rebuild the armed forces.
Once again the donald is speaking out of both sides of his mouth at the same time. The onslaught of mixed messages just in this one item is dumbfounding. Kill the program, kill thousands of jobs. Kill the program and you aren’t rebuilding the armed forces.
Lockheed Martin, the builder of the plane, lost 2 billion dollars in market value after this morning’s announcement.
Yes, I know this isn’t the only doublespeak coming out of the drumpf headquarters and the differences between the drumpf agenda and the GOP agenda just keeps getting more difficult to connect. Seriously.
