New Trump Economy Job Loss Numbers: 57,500+ Announced Mass Layoffs And Counting

Apr 06, 2017

Ahead of tomorrow’s jobs report, American Bridge is releasing our latest tabulation of the 57,560-and-counting announced mass layoffs during the first 75 days of Donald Trump’s presidency. 
Trump dishonestly takes credit for job deals that were announced months before he even thought about running for office. And citing zero evidence he loves to say he’s “bringing back jobs.”
We’re continuing to track Trump’s broken jobs promises at, because the truth is Donald Trump has done nothing to stimulate job creation or stem — let alone acknowledge — the layoffs that have continued to happen on his watch.
American Bridge President Jessica Mackler released the following statement ahead of tomorrow’s jobs report:

“There have been almost 60,000 announced mass layoffs since Trump’s inauguration, but the president won’t so much as acknowledge those Americans getting left behind, let alone put forth a comprehensive jobs plan to get them back on their feet.

Far from bringing back jobs, Trump has done nothing but sell out America’s working families, importing foreign labor at his family businesses while signing executive orders that give free rein to Wall Street and gut crucial worker protections.”
