A Pennsylvania man who voted for President Donald Trump in 2016 told CNN on Friday that he’s bitterly disappointed in how he’s seen no progress in manufacturing jobs returning to his community.

John Golomb, a retired steel worker who backed the president in 2016 because of his promises to bring back good paying jobs to the Rust Belt, explained to CNN that Trump gave his community false hope about an economic revival during his first presidential campaign.

“We had Donald Trump come here and profess about reviving American steel,” he said. “That’s just what all of us steelworkers wanted to hear!”

In the nearly three years since the election, however, Golomb said he’s still waiting for Trump to fulfill his promises.

“When he was elected, he pulled a Houdini on us,” he said. “He disappeared.”

The retired steelworker was then asked what he would tell the president if he ever came back to campaign in his community.

“He wouldn’t speak to me because I would have to tell him truth,” Golomb said. “Where are your promises?”

"Number two, the president of the United States refused to condemn white supremacy," he continued.

"Number three, the commander-in-chief refused to condemn white supremacy on the global stage -- in front of my children, in front of everybody's families -- and he was given the opportunity multiple times to condemn white supremacy," Jones said.

Jake Tapper stunned by Trump’s debate: ‘That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck’

Published

CNN Jake Tapper reacted in shock on Tuesday following the first presidential debate between Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump.

"That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck," Tapper said. "That was the worst debate I have ever seen. In fact, it wasn't even a debate. It was a disgrace."

"And it's primarily because of President Trump," he remarked, "who spent the entire time interrupting, not abiding by the rules that he agreed to, lying, maliciously attacking the son of the vice president. When asked to condemn white supremacists, he brought up the name of a neo-fascist, far-right group and said, 'Stand back and stand by.'"

Here’s all the evidence you need that the tax code wasn’t written for you

Published

on

The New York Times reported that Trump only paid $750 in taxes in 2016 and again in 2017, and documented how much of his lavish lifestyle he could write off.  I have no proof that this travesty is actually true.  But there is plenty of evidence that his tax code is definitely not written for you, the average reader.  It’s designed to do exactly what The New York Times is reporting.

You’ve probably read stories about how Warren Buffett realized his secretary was paying more in taxes than he was.  Well, it’s hardly an isolated tale.
