Resistance Day 5: Mostly part-year employment as a result of the Trumper’s recent actions

“This is on the Keystone pipeline…A lot of jobs, 28,000 jobs. Great construction jobs.”

10,400 construction workers would get mostly part-year employment as a result of the Trumper’s recent actions: “This is on the Keystone pipeline…A lot of jobs, 28,000 jobs. Great construction jobs.”  Another example of Orwellian distortion using “alternative facts” math.

Note that oil, which closed last year at $60.30 per barrel, is off 43 percent on the year and down from $94 per barrel during the summer of 2014. So there are plenty of losses to be had.
