US unemployment is at 3.7%. Why is anyone worried about jobs
Because the demonrats could become your next government. That should answer your question.

The last democrat administration inherited a helluva mess, and after the first couple of years unemployment declined and there was economic growth throughout the entire period. I don't understand the problem.

All that growth and recovery was just because we were anticipating Trump getting elected. It makes perfect sense if you don’t think about it. :lol:

The democrats inherited nothing, the demonrats have been in control since before WW2, they own the deep state or vice versa, so there is no inheriting its just passing down more crap. Trump is the only real president since who knows for sure when. Before trump all we saw was a face that said they were republicans or demonrats. If a face entered the fold that did not fit, like say Sonny Bono, or JFK, then what happened?

Looks like another left-wing lie bites the dust. Didn't I mention lies in my first response?

Again, Trump is using tariffs to squeeze a better deal out of countries that have gravy-trained us for decades with the sole intent of lowering them for everyone in the long run. Short term pain, long term gain.

"The latest job reduction will be for salaried employees, not manufacturing employees, and is a restructuring unrelated to the tariffs.

“The reports you have read about our organization redesign work being related to external forces such as tariffs are incorrect,” Ford Motor Company spokesperson Karen Hampton told Watchdog.org.

“This is a global effort and not specific to the U.S.,” she added. “We began this effort recently as part of our CEO’s work to make us a faster, more nimble, more innovative company.”

A better deal for who? Who’s “us”?

This line of thinking, in terms of looking at people as groups, in this case an entire group people within an imaginary border OR more accurately a particular countries Government is no different than looking at people based on skin color.

“If the Chinese Government is pushing it, it’s because all of the Chinese populace supports it, just as ALL blacks are thugs and murderers.”

Tariffs ONLY benefit the government and the SPECIFIC producers looking to sell their products abroad AT THE EXPENSE OF EVERYONE ELSE in the US and China.

Here is but ONE small but illustrative example of Obama’s tariff on Chinese tires.

This has to be the dumbest statement I ever read.
Since when did the Chinese populace have any input on Government policy?

obummer couldn't run a lemonade stand much less institute a successful tariff strategy. The rest of what you said is silliness.

Please re-read my post. I stated that such line of thinking is a fallacy...

Ford Motor Company is reportedly preparing to initiate major layoffs after suffering a blow to profits of at least $1 billion due to tariffs enacted by President Donald Trump.

The nation’s largest automaker hasn’t yet revealed how many workers will be affected. But a report by Morgan Stanley estimated that as many as 12 percent of the company’s 202,000 workers worldwide could be cut, NBC reported.

Layoffs will center on Ford’s 70,000-strong white-collar workforce as part of what the company is calling a “redesign” of its staff in an ongoing $22.5 billion reorganization, according to NBC.

Trump’s tariffs and the retaliatory tariffs they triggered are taking a toll on the U.S. auto industry.

Ford CEO Jim Hackett told Bloomberg last month that tariffs on imported aluminum and steel alone dealt a blow to company profits.

“From Ford’s perspective the metals tariffs took about $1 billion in profit from us,” Hackett said. “The irony of which is we source most of that in the U.S. If it goes on any longer, it will do more damage.”

The ongoing trade war is expected to continue to hurt the company’s bottom line. Earlier this year, Trump said that “trade wars are good, and easy to win.”

Ford announced a shift earlier this year to produce almost exclusively SUVs and trucks. Those vehicles continue to grow in popularity and are more profitable.

Its only passenger car will remain the popular Mustang, but production of the iconic brand could also be hurt if profits continue to fall.

The automaker said last month that it was ditching plans to sell its new Focus crossover vehicle in the U.S. The Ford Focus Active is manufactured in China. Because of the U.S.’s new tariffs on imported cars, it’s no longer profitable for the company to sell it in America, officials said.

“This is the first of potentially many vehicles that will disappear from the U.S. market” due to the trade war, Kristin Dziczek of the Ann Arbor, Michigan-based Center for Automotive Research warned.
Another failed jab at trump.. your stupid azz
