45 talks about jobs, but he actually is doing nothing. 45 is the Job Killer (In Michigan). 45 proposes to reverse regulations and would create an estimated 570,000 jobs in the United States by 2030, including 50,000 in light-duty vehicle manufacturing.

  • But His budget blueprint would cut grants and training programs that help laid-off industrial workers qualify for higher-paying manufacturing jobs.

(He) his pledge(d) to spend $1 trillion on “new roads, bridges, tunnels, airports and railways gleaming across our very, very beautiful land,”

  • (but) his budget would cut new funding from the Federal Transit Administration’s Capital Investment Program, kill the Department of Agriculture’s $500 million water and wastewater loan and grant program, cut $175 million in spending for rural airports, and eliminate the $3 billion Community Development Block Grant program, which has been used to revitalize inner city infrastructure and housing.

Spends a ton on defense .

I love media and communication, as well as digital technology. I write and speak fluently in Spanish and English. I was born in New York, but was sent to Puerto Rico at an early age, where I lived until drafted by the U.S. army. Upon returning from an honorable discharge, I found Puerto Rico small and limited at the time. I moved to Boston where I pursued musical studies and later worked as a musician, teacher, and speech-pathologist in New York. I am currently still interested in world politics, social justice, and income inequality. Health and wellness are essential to survive and thrive. I am working on patience and skills necessary to keep learning.
